French Drain Installation is a primary focus for CMG Sprinklers and Drains. Angie’s List has awarded us their Customer Service Award for the State of Oklahoma for top quality French Drain Installation. Along with the French Drain Customer Service Award, Angie’s List has given CMG their top A+ Rating and placed us at the top of their website for Oklahoma French Drain Installation.
CMG also installs a variety of other types of Drains. Our Drainage Systems may utilize: French Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, Trench Drains, Basin Drains, and Sump Pumps. In the past 21 years, we have installed French Drains to keep water away from home and business foundations, Surface Drains to keep water away from sidewalks and driveways, Trench Drains, and French Drains to keep standing water out of flowerbeds and yards, and Sump Pumps to remove water from basements and outdoor low lying areas.
French Drains can be installed by themselves, or as part of a Drainage System that uses other French Drains, Surface Drains, or other Drain combinations. Typically a French Drain is used to protect a broad area that has a lot of standing water. A French Drain might run along side a homes foundation, or beside a driveway, or on any Drainage Project where Sub-Surface water is the primary problem. If water is running toward your home under ground ( through sandy soil), A French Drain is the only Solution for draining away water flowing under ground.
If you live in Oklahoma City and need a French Drain installed in your yard, or along your driveway, or near your foundation, give CMG a call. If you live in Edmond or Norman and need a Surface Drain installed in the concrete in your sidewalk or driveway, we can help. If you live in Mustang or Yukon and would like to protect your trees or flower beds from standing water with a French Drain, CMG specializes in just that!
Drains can protect your home and property from water damage. CMG installs a wide variety of Drains in many different places. A Drain or Group of Drains with Drain Pipe going to an exit point is a “Drainage System.”
Drainage Systems can be made up of one drain or a combination of many drains. Drainage problems can be very complex. Complex Drainage Problems may require a combination of several different types of drains all inter-connected and working together. Other times the drainage problem may be simple and straight-forward requiring only one drain or several of the same type of drains connected together.
An example of a complex drainage system would be: A French Drain in the back yard connected to a Surface Drain near a flower bed connected to several gutter downspouts, which are connected to a Channel Drain going across a driveway, which is connected to additional Surface Drain in the front yard, which runs to a Curb Fitting that lets all the water drain out on to the street.
An “Exit Point” is the term used for where all the water leaves the Drainage System. Determining the Exit Point is very critical. It is one of the first things we do when diagnosing a Drainage Problem.
We install two types of exit points. The first is called a “Pop Up Emitter.” It can be used in a variety of places such as on a hill-side or up against a curb. It has a small basin with a green lid that pops up about an inch and gently releases water down the hill or over the curb. The second type of Exit Point is called a “Curb-fitting“. The Curb-Fitting is a plastic fitting that goes directly through the cement curb and releases water directly onto the street. We have to cut the curb with a concrete saw. Next we connect the Curb-Fitting to the end of the Drain Pipe. Finally we pour new concrete around the Curb-Fitting, replacing the curb that we cut away. When complete the Curb-Fitting is securely set in concrete.
CMG has been diagnosing and solving drainage problems since 1993. If you have water standing in your yard after a thunderstorm or if your sidewalk turns into a moat during a hard rain, give CMG a call. We can help protect the foundation of your home or business from deterioration due to standing water or poor drainage.
