What Are French Drains?

The french drain design has remained unchanged for over 160 years. It’s one of the most efficient ways to get rid of a wet yard or basement and can last a lifetime. The installation process is actually quite simple. A trench will be dug and the pipe will go in it. The most common types of pipes used and that we stand behind, are actually made from plastic. There are two types – PVC and corrugated. Both are very durable, lightweight, and easy to work with and we’ll gladly explain which we recommend for your property after inspecting the area. After placing the pipe, it will be filled with gravel, rock or sand that will help move the water through a sump pump where it will direct the water safely away from your property. Now that stormwater will be thoroughly drained through the pipe, away from your foundation, and into a rain barrel or storm drain. If you’re still experiencing a wet basement, an indoor french drain can be installed. Like an outdoor french drain, the water will collect in a sump pump and send it back outside into the drain line.
