Interior French drain is an effective solution for the diversion of water. Hydrostatic pressure is the main cause of water coming up though the basement floor.

Installing a drain below grade will divert the water to the sump pit. This will save your home and give you peace of mind. The process is as follows:

  • Break concrete floors around interior footings.
  • Remove concrete and earth from the trench approximately 12 inches deep.
  • Install geotextile inside trench.
  • Install Platon (dimple board) on foundation walls.
  • Install sump pit and pump for the discharge of any water.
  • Fill trench with clean gravel.
  • Re-cement all floors.
