A French drain system is a proven solution for removing excess water from around a foundation. French drains have evolved into a more specialized system with drain tiles that have perforations or hole to allow water to flow through. Gravel is placed around the drain tiles to made sure the water has a path to flow through. Once they are installed, they can be covered by sod. The experts at PFS Basement & Foundation Repair can install a French drain system around your Marion, IN home to keep water away from entering your basement.
One of the methods for a French drain is a rigid pipe design. This uses a simple, rigid, perforated pipe that is covered by clean gravel. It is then covered with geo-textile fabric. This method will keep the moisture away from your home and not allow water to enter your basement.
