This week, CMG installed a French Drain around the outside edge of a patio in the back yard in Edmond. The French Drain provided a protective barrier for storm water run-off. The French Drain transitioned to solid Drain Pipe and continued across the back yard to a Pop-Up Emitter to release the water from the Drainage System. After a heavy rain, the French Drain will quickly drain away the water on the patio. ( Drainage Problem Solved )

French Drains, Surface Drains, and Channel Drains are the 3 most common types of Drains that we utilize in a Drainage System Installation. Some Drainage Problems are very complex others are straight forward and basic. A basic Drainage System might be a 4 Inch French Drain running to a Pop-Up emitter. A Complex Drainage System might have a Surface Drain connected to a French Drain, Gutter Down Spouts, and a Sump Pump all releasing through a Curb Fitting. Every drainage problem is different. CMG can provide a Free Estimate and Drainage Diagnostic for anyone within 50 Miles of Oklahoma City.
We installed a Double – 6 inch French Drain in Chickasha. This solved an interesting drainage problem. During heavy rain, high water would rush down the driveway which was on a steep hill, make a turn and run directly into the garage. During a very heavy rain in 2007, the garage door was ripped off and the back wall of the garage was taken out. Our job was to intercept the water before it could get to the driveway. Installing a double-six inch French Drain on the high side of the driveway did the trick. Since 2007 no water has gotten into their garage.
