Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair Installed a Double Six inch French Drain in Edmond this week. A Double Six Inch French Drain is two six inch French Drains laid side by side in one very wide and deep trench. It is designed to move a huge amount of water away from a home. The customer had several different drainage problems in their back yard. After a thunderstorm, water would run under their back fence and into their garage. The back yard was on a steep hillside and the water would run very fast down the hill and into the garage. We installed 2 large six inch French Drains across the water’s path. This allowed the water to be diverted into the French Drain which then ran through drain pipe to a curb outlet at the street. Three Gutter Down Spouts were connected into the French Drain. The French Drain created a protective barrier for the garage. A 12 inch Surface Drain was also included in the Drainage System. It was placed up against the driveway and connected with 4 inch Solid drain pipe to the 6 inch French Drain. Water was completely rerouted away from the home. A French Drain and Surface Drain combination in this case was the best solution to this particular drainage problem.

The customer let us know that he was ready to move forward. We scheduled the Drainage System Installation for the following week. When the scheduled day arrived, we installed the Drainage System. The Drain was made up of a 6 inch French Drain running 30 feet along the East side of the house. It curved around the corner of the house. At that point a 12 inch Surface Drain was connected to the French Drain with 4 inch pipe. The 6 inch French Drain at that point changed to 6 inch Solid Drain Pipe and continued under ground 65 feet to a pop-up emitter at the curb in the front yard near the street.
