Entire Concrete Slab

entire concrete slab
I have a water problem on my covered porch?

I live in Florida where the rains can be very heavy. My back porch is 16′ x 10′ on a Concrete Slab…..it’s also screened in with a roof. The level of the grass outside of it is pretty much level with the slab. When it rains very heavy, water begins to seep in and eventually fills the entire porch area.

I’ve tried digging a ditch around the entire porch to no avail. Now the water simply collects in the ditch and percolates back into the earth very slow.

Any suggestions other than maybe a sump pump on what I should do to get this water out when it rains?

Thanks,

-Primo

ditch idea was close, you need to dig a little deeper 6,8,maybe10inches and slope it either direction(hopefully you have a place for it to go on either side of slab) then you need to lay what is called “drain tile” it is a black 4″ flexible pipe that has holes in it for the water to come in it will then flow down the pipe to where you want it to go. once you have the pipe in cover it with a thin layer of 1-2″ big rocks then cover with dirt and grass on the top back up to the slab(the rocks over the pipe will keep dirt from plugging the holes in the pipe) when the rain comes it should soak through the layers quickly into the pipe and down to where you want it. Hope this helps. P.S. if you dont have a place on either side that will drain the water away. you may have no choice but to dig in a pit with a pump at the end of the drain tile. you could use it as an underground rain barrel type collector and use the water for your plants or lawn when its dry.
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO–make sure that extra water is not getting close or into the foundation of your house, can cause great structural damage and or MOLD!!
