Our French Drain Installation Process

Key Features of our Installation:

  • Materials: The system includes filter fabric, ¾ inch clean stone, and a 3 or 4-inch perforated PVC pipe. A drain board mounted to the foundation wall is used to protect these components.
  • Sump Pump Unit: The installation includes a Superior Pump 92250 1/4-HP Thermoplastic Submersible Sump Pump, positioned in one of the corners of the basement. This pump is capable of moving up to 1,800 gallons per hour and includes a tethered float switch for automatic operation. In our experience this is more than sufficient for most sized basements
  • Discharge: The pump’s discharge pipe exits through the side of the house, directing water towards the public sewer system.
  • Preparation: The installation process may require temporary removal of objects like stairway landings or bathroom fixtures. We will take care of most things needed to get you ready for your installation

Additional Recommendations

  • Battery Backup: An optional battery backup unit, including a 12V pump and a maintenance-free battery, is available for extra protection during power outages.
  • Mold Treatment: Application of disinfectant/fungicide is offered for areas with existing mold growth.

Our Guarantee: FloodCo USA provides a 25-year guarantee against subfloor/cove-joint water seepage. The main and battery pumps also come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Installation Process:

  • Maintenance: The sealed battery requires no maintenance, but periodic testing of the backup pumps is recommended.
  • Post-Installation Care: The newly cemented floor requires 3-4 days to dry before use, and 30-60 days for full curing before applying oil-based adhesives. Homeowners are advised to wet the new cement daily for 3-4 days post-installation for optimal curing.

What is a French Drain System?

A French drain system is a simple yet effective method for redirecting water away from a specific area to prevent water pooling and soil saturation. The basic concept involves a trench filled with gravel or rock that contains a perforated pipe, which is used to channel water away from the area. Here’s a breakdown of its key components and functionality:

  1. Trench and Perforated Pipe:
    • A trench is dug in the area where water needs to be diverted from. Its depth and width can vary depending on the application.
    • Inside the trench, a perforated pipe is laid. These holes allow water to enter the pipe from the surrounding soil.
  2. Gravel or Rock Filling:
    • The trench is filled with gravel or rock, which serves multiple purposes. It helps to filter debris, preventing the pipe from clogging, and facilitates the easy flow of water into the pipe.
  3. Water Redirection:
    • The water that enters the pipe is then redirected. It can be channeled to a sump pump in your basement.
  4. Applications:
    • French drains are commonly used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging building foundations.
    • They are also effective in preventing water from pooling in yards, gardens, or agricultural fields.
