A French Drain is completely different from a Surface Drain. A basic French Drain consists of a Perforated Drain Pipe in the bottom of a trench. A Trench Liner is sometimes used depending on the Drainage System Design and the type of soil. The Drain Pipe should have a neoprene sock around the Perforated Drain Pipe. This is to ensure that the Drain Pipe does not become clogged. A trench is dug that is slightly wider than the French Drain Pipe that is being used. There are several sizes of French Drain Pipe. Three Inch, Four Inch, and Six Inch are the most common sizes of French drain Pipe. The dirt that is taken out to make the trench is hauled away. It is replaced by some type of small stone or gravel depending on what is desired or available. I prefer crushed 1 inch lime stone. It is the most economical option in my area. Pea Gravel or some other type of small stone can work just as well. The lime-stone or gravel is placed in the trench on top of the perforated Drain Pipe and filled all the way to the surface (ground level). In some cases where the French Drain needs to be deep or is being placed in sandy soil, a special trench liner must be placed in the trench before the perforated Drain Pipe or the Gravel are installed. This helps maintain the integrity of the trench over time. It also increases the cost of the French Drain and the amount of time to install it. I install a trench liner in a French Drain about 20% of the time. Most of the time a liner in not needed.

Edmond Oklahoma has been the location for many French Drain Installations for us in the past several years. Recently we ripped out an old Surface Drain that was under a deck. The Surface Drain was too small for the job and did not Protect the Foundation from Standing Water. The First step was to take out part of the deck along the wall. Next we took out the Surface Drain and the Three Inch Pipe which was too small. Digging a trench along the foundation came next. We had to ensure the, “Fall” to make sure the water would run from left to right. Next a French Drain Liner needed to be installed. This was necessary to maintain the integrity of the trench and to keep the French Drain Pipe from filling up with sand and getting clogged over the next few years. We then installed 4 inch ADS Perf/Soc French Drain Pipe along the course of the French Drain. Next we connected the end of the French Drain Pipe to Solid 4 Inch ADS Drain pipe to continue along the trench to the Pop-Up Emitter at the Exit Point.
A good Drainage System has a point where water enters the System. This is usually through a French Drain, Surface Drain, or a Gutter Down Spout that is connected into a Drain Pipe. Water will run through either Perforated French Drain Pipe or Solid Drain Pipe depending on the Drainage System Design. Water will flow down hill to an Exit Point where the water will be released out of the Drainage System. This is a done through a Pop-Up Emitter or a Curb Fitting.
