Splash Pads - Residential

Splash pads convey roof water and groundwater past the foundation excavation zone and away from the foundation walls. They minimize soil erosion and water recycling through the foundation drainage system. The recommended standard concrete splash pad is 30 cm x 107 cm.

If direct connection to Storm or Foundation Service is not available, splash pad could be placed:

  • underneath all downspouts draining onto soft landscaping (sod, topsoil or mulch)
  • underneath the sump pump discharge outlet where it is draining onto soft landscaping (sod, topsoil or mulch)

Minimum distance of the discharge point of downspouts, splash pads and sump hoses from a property line is:

  • 15 cm from an adjacent private property
  • 30 cm from an adjacent City property

The following diagram and pictures illustrate the standard Splash Pad dimensions, proper use of the Splash Pad and Downspout Extensions:
