Let’s take a look at why you would want a French drain installed in your basement in the first place and how it can help. Henry French is the founder of the French drain system. He believes that his French drain system not only would control the water management of a basement but also control the management of a crawl space as well. The French drain is made to direct surface and groundwater away from your home’s foundation. French drains can also be used behind retaining walls to relieve ground pressure. The French drain is great to use on older homes that weren’t built with interior waterproofing. Now that we know what French drains are used for let’s look at its component the drain pipe.
WCI uses the ECP 400 Series Drain pipe for our drainage systems. It can be used in interior and exterior foundation drains. The drainage pipe is very strong and environmentally friendly. The drain pipe uses the principals in the French Drain system while also eliminating common problems from other pipe coupling systems.
The ECP 400 series drain pipe can be used as perforated or non-perforated. The non-perforated drain pipe moves water away from the foundation without it seeping into the soil. The perforated drain pipe removes pooling water from your foundation and disperses the water back into the soil once it is safely removed from the foundation.
