What is a French drain?

A French drainage system uses a perforated pipe that typically runs through a gravel filled trench outside your home or commercial property. Its job is to redirect water away from your home or building so that your property and yard is protected.

Heavy rainfall and the slope of your land can cause water to pool outside your residence or even enter into your basement destroying everything in its path and creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. This innovative system will help to protect you, your property, and your loved ones from the multiple hazards that follow an uncontrollable flood.

What are the different types of systems?

  • Shallow French drain: Sometimes referred to as a curtain drain this system is typically placed about two feet underground and is used to remove standing water from your yard.
  • Grated rain drains: A drain is installed in the area where you have standing water. The pipe is buried
  • Deep French drain: A deep French drain or footing drain is used to keep water out of your basement. However, it is best to have it installed before your home or commercial property is built, as it will require some major construction if you choose to do it afterwards.
  • Interior French drain: Typically chosen over a footing drain this system combines the use of perforated pipes, a collection tank, and your sump pump to channel any water away from the inside of your home or building.
  • Pre-engineered French drain: This is one of the most popular French drainage systems and does not require gravel or rock to be placed around your property in order to redirect any intrusive floodwaters.

What are some common problems with these systems?

The most common problem we see is collapsed corrugated pipe that channels water away from your downspouts Most options require some excavation during installation.
