French drain systems are usually designed with a PVC pipe that is perforated and installed along the interior perimeter of the foundation or along the exterior of the home. There are many dangers associated with wet and flooded basements. These wet basements can cause structural damage, toxic and contaminated water, mold growth, electrical problems, and similar problems like this which can put you in danger.

French Drainage System Installations
The process of installation of a French drainage system is started by backfilling the foundation soil of the foundation walls which is followed by laying the drainage system at the bottom of the evacuated area. After this, a layer of stone is installed over the French drain. Once the drain is installed, the area is backfilled and the system is left alone unless it clogs. An external French drain can operate for 10 years or more without any need for maintenance.
