French drain systems are a proven solution for removing excess water. A French drain used to be something as simple as a ditch filled with gravel, but they have evolved into more specialized systems with drain tiles that have perforations or holes to allow water to flow through. Gravel is placed around the drain tiles to make sure water has a path to flow through. Geo-textiles fabrics are used to enhance the filtration process. Once installed French drain systems can be covered by sod so you can’t even tell they are there. We offer two different types of French drain systems.
The first method is a rigid pipe design. This option uses a simple, rigid, perforated pipe that is surrounded by clean gravel. It is then covered with geo-textile fabric. If a French drain is installed correctly with the rigid pipe method, it will decrease moisture and improve the overall air quality in your home. The second method is the ECP EZ Flow Poly Drain System. This system is the leading geo-synthetic aggregate drain system. It can be used on interior and exterior foundation drainage, landscape drainage, retaining walls, crawlspaces, and many other applications. There are many benefits to this system:
