What is a French Drain and When Do You Need One?

A French drain (also referred to as drain tile, weeping tile, perimeter drain, trench drain, sub-surface drain, or sub-soil drain) is a trench filled with gravel and a perforated pipe that channels water away from an area where you don't want it to collect. They're typically added along driveways, in wet areas of a lawn, or around home foundations to prevent water intrusion. Homes with foundation water issues can benefit from French drain installation. Installing a French drain system around a foundation requires special equipment and knowledge of proper foundation waterproofing methods to avoid making foundation water problems worse.

Traditional French drains have a bad reputation for clogging and being difficult to clean. At Sunshine Foundation Repair, we install non-clogging interior drainage systems and high-performance French drain solutions that outperform traditional systems.

  • WaterGuard® Below Floor Drain

    The WaterGuard® basement drain system.

    Our WaterGuard® system is a popular interior waterproofing solution. This perimeter drain system is designed to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing. This keeps the drainage system out of the "mud zone," where typical French drains are prone to clogging. WaterGuard® is installed with minimal invasion of the slab and all concrete is restored after installation.

    The WaterGuard® system collects water that seeps through the foundation and drains it to a sump pump. The system installs quickly and has a clean finished appearance, meaning you don't have to worry about having an unsightly drain. This product also comes with a written lifetime warranty.

  • TrenchDrain™ Grated Drain Pipe

    The TrenchDrain Grated Drainage Pipe System

    If you have water entering your home through an entryway, including an exterior door, hatchway, or garage door, the TrenchDrain™ Grated Draining Pipe may be the solution. This specially-designed drainage solution spans the opening and prevents water from flowing into your home. The grated opening of this system is designed to accept water from the floor, where it's then redirected to your perimeter drain and sump pump.

    TrenchDrain™ comes with a removable lid to clear any debris that may enter the drain and is compatible with all our perimeter drain systems. The device lays smoothly across the floor to eliminate tripping hazards. TrenchDrain™ is backed by a lifetime product warranty.
