French Drain

Description

A French drain is a perforated pipe that is designed to redirect stormwater to areas where it can soak into the soil. French drains are best suited to areas with pooling water, such as the bottom of a downspout.

MAINTENANCE TIPS

French drain maintenance involves removal of debris from the gravel surface and cleaning of the perforated pipe. Clean-outs are easy-access points that are installed during construction to allow the pipes to be flushed and cleaned with a jet of water.
