http://www.learningconstruction.com Step by Step Tutorials: French drains are often installed around a home foundation in two different ways: Buried around the foundation wall on the external side of the foundation Installed underneath the basement floor on the inside perimeter of the basement In most homes, an external French drain or drain tile is installed around the foundation walls before the foundation soil is backfilled. It's laid on the bottom of the excavated area, and a layer of stone is laid on top. In many cases, a filter fabric is then laid on top of the stone to keep fine sediments and particles from entering. Once the drain is installed, the area is backfilled and the system is left alone unless it clogs. While an external French drain can operate for ten years or more without the need for maintenance, it's prone to clogging without any warning and can eventually lead to a flooded basement. When there is no filter fiber, sediments can make their way through the stone as years pass and clog the drain, and when the filter fabric is present, that can instead clog with sediments. It may be wise to provide cleanouts, much as is done with sanitary sewers, to provide access for inspection with a camera snake. Also, a French drain that is not installed with a sump pump counts on gravity alone to drain foundation water, and if the house is not located on a hill or near a steep incline, finding this slope can be problematic. Additionally, maintenance on an external French drain involves expensive exterior excavation, which includes removal of walkways, shrubberies, porches, gardens, and anything else along the perimeter. Installing a French drain around the inside perimeter is most commonly done after the house has been built. Most commonly, this is done in response to a wet basement or right before performing a basement finishing. To install this kind of drain, the perimeter of the basement floor is jackhammered down to the footing and the cement is removed. A layer of stone is laid down, and a perforated drain pipe is laid on top of it. Water is collected from the basement wall floor joint as it enters, and a pump is installed to remove water from the house and away from the foundation. Once completed, the area, save for a 2 in (5.1 cm) gap around the edge, is cemented over. This gap exists to allow water in from the basement walls. This can be installed very quickly—one to two days by an experienced crew. The system is easy to maintain once installed, and the sump pump will need annual maintenance to perform properly. An interior French drain is much less likely to clog than an exterior, partially due to the fact that it is not sitting underneath several feet of soil. Interior French drain installation is an effective way to waterproof a basement but requires the use of a sump pump. Many contractors will install plastic sump pumps that can quickly break down or neglect to install a battery backup sump pump, making the basement vulnerable to flooding during power outages. Sump pumps should be installed with a battery backup system in a proper sump liner of 20 US gal (76 L) size or larger to prevent the sump from having too little water and turning on and off continuously. French drain has evolved significantly from its origins- starting off as a hand-dug ditch, moving on to ceramic tile, PVC pipe, and eventually to the new French drain innovations on the market like WaterGuard and Grate Channel. Each new system is able to address weaknesses of the old as the French drain continues to improve and evolve. For example, whereas Henry French used chippings of tree bark to provide anti-microbial properties, an anti-microbial additive can now be included in the material of the plastic channel.

Drain a Low Spot in the Yard using left over pipe and old 6x6 cacth basin. The water sits in the low spot because of higher ground on the downhill side. To solve the problem, dig a trench through the mound allowing water to flow freely to a lower section. For best result (permenant Fix) install a cacth Basin to collect the water and small section of pipe for it to flow trhough. Remember - A French Drain is perforated pipe surround by gravel. It is used to collect subsurface water. A Catch Basin helps collect surface water. Sometimes you need to use both systems, but if you have definate low spot in the yard, a catch basin is the answer.

Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Steps for How to Install a Basement Bathroom: 1. Lay out the 2x4 bottom wall plates to establish the perimeter of the bathroom walls. 2. Measure off the wall plates to locate the center of the shower drain and toilet flange. 3. Dig a trench extending from the existing drainpipe over to the new locations of the shower drain and toilet flange. 4. Use a right-angle grinder fitted with a diamond-impregnated cutting wheel to cut through the old cast-iron drainpipe. 5. Attach a flexible no-hub mechanical coupling onto the end of the just-cut drainpipe. Tighten hose clamp onto the cast-iron pipe with a torque wrench. 6. Cut and glue together 3-inch-diameter PVC pipes and fittings to form the drainpipe assembly that connects the old cast-iron pipe to the new shower and toilet drain. 7. Slip the end of the PVC drainpipe assembly into the mechanical coupling attached to the old cast-iron pipe. Tighten the hose clamp to secure the PVC pipe. 8. Next, run 2-inch-diameter PVC pipe from the drainpipe assembly over to the shower and vanity sink. 9. Install traps for each fixture, and be sure the pipes slope 1/8 inch per foot to drain properly. 10. Drive a 1/2-inch-diameter steel-reinforcing bar down into the soil beside each trap. Then, use duct tape to secure the bars to the traps. 11. Have the rough piping inspected before pouring the concrete floor. 12. Cover the open end of the toilet pipe with a foam cap. Wrap plastic around the shower-drain pipe. 13. Have the concrete contractor pour a new floor around the piping.

Channel drain around the pool serves to collect rain water and protect your home. When this small channel drain goes bad, it can sometimes be cleaned, but most of the time the problem is the DISCHARGE of the drain is bad or missing. This is the most common problem in southern homes. From Florida to Texas, even up into the southern states. Problems like pool liner bubbles or pulls away from wall, cracked concrete, or the most common problem is water finds its way into the back wall of the house and does damage to hardwood floors, causing them to warp or buckle, baseboard get wet, wet sheet rock, and wet walls, and in some cases, so much pressure builds under the floor it causes the floor itself to buckle. The solution is proper discharge of the channel drain, whether it be gravity or by sump pump.

Here is good example of improper pop up placement. Its before the sidewalk. Water has saturated the yard badly.. The pipe needs to be extended to the curb, however HOA (Home Owners Association) will not permit cutting walk or coring curb for discharge..

Should you use Geo Fabric to wrap your gravel when installing a French drain? Good Question. Depending on the soil type and depending on what kind of fabric you use will make a big difference. Honestly... the system will last 15 to 25 years with or without fabric! This video shows why we prefer NOT to use fabric when installing a system in clay based soils. Geo fabric is used to help keep dirt and mud out of the gravel in French drain or at the footer tile.

NDS Spee-D and Mini channels help to collect surface water and direct it away from your home and landscape. For more information on NDS SpeeD and Mini channels or other products, please visit our website at http://ndspro.com/channel-and-trench-drains Today were going to show you how to install the NDS Spee-D channel drain. A channel drain is an effective way to collect and direct surface water away from your home or property. Channel drains collect water over a large area making them the perfect solution for water running off of your driveway, sidewalk, pool deck or patio. Let’s get started. In this particular residence, the homeowner wanted to prevent water from running off of the driveway and into the garage. A channel drain will be used to capture the water and direct it away from the house. The channel drain funnels water through pipes and eventually moves the water to a safe distance from the house. NDS Spee-D channel drains are available in 4 foot and 10 foot lengths to easily adapt to any job. Each channel has available accessories that easily connect to a variety of pipe types and sizes, such as end outlets, bottom outlets, 90s and tees. This flexibility allows you to easily create a customized drainage system for your home. This particular installation is of the Spee-D channel drain, but the same steps can be applied to the NDS mini channel drain. This installation involves the forming, pouring and finishing of concrete. If you are not comfortable doing this, we recommend you contact a contractor to help with the installation. Installing the NDS Spee-D channel drain can be a lot of work but will protect your property from future water damage.
