INTERIOR FRENCH DRAIN SYSTEM FOR BASEMENT WATERPROOFING IN MICHIGAN, INDIANA AND OHIO
StayDry Basement Waterproofing, MI removes the floor of the basement or crawl space approximately 12 to 16 inches away from the wall. Our crews then dig down and removes the soil next to the footing approximately 8 to 12 inches deep. Once the soil and concrete are removed StayDry Basement Waterproofing, MI lines the trench with our soil separating fabric and then places our 4 inch perforated Triple Wall Drain Tile inside that fabric. We then cover the drain tile system in a thick layer of double washed 6A stone. The geo-textile fabric filters water flowing to the drain tile and minimizes soil particles from passing through, greatly reducing any chance of the system clogging. Also periodically throughout the drain system StayDry Basement Waterproofing, MI installs our E-Z Clean-Out Systems, which are access points covered by caps that can be removed for regular maintenance.
Through these E-Z Clean-Outs the drain tile system can be easily flushed of any soil particles, or Iron Algae, Iron Ocher, or Iron Bacteria buildup that could possibly occur. The drain tile system is directed to a sealed sump crock basin to collect the water, which is then pumped out of the basement by a variable HP sump pump and discharged to a chosen location.
Once the PolyDrain has been laid down the drain tile system is ready to be re-cemented. StayDry® Basement Waterproofing, MI carefully re-pours freshly mixed concrete and our installers expertly finish it to evenly meet the existing concrete floor. Our workmanship is unlike any other you will find and has even been admired by our competitors!
