What is a Subsurface Drainage System?
A subsurface drainage system, often referred to as a French drain, is designed to redirect excess water away from your property, preventing water accumulation that can lead to foundation damage, basement flooding, and soil erosion. This discreet solution involves the installation of a perforated pipe buried beneath the ground, surrounded by gravel or rock to facilitate water drainage.
How French Drains Work
French drains work on the principle of gravity-driven water flow. When rainwater or groundwater accumulates in the soil, it follows the path of least resistance, entering the perforated pipe within the drain. The water then flows along the pipe, safely diverting away from your property and preventing potential water-related issues.
Benefits of French Drain Systems
- Prevent Basement Flooding: French drains effectively channel water away from your home’s foundation or crawlspace, reducing the risk of basement flooding.
- Protect Landscaping: Excess water can erode soil and damage plants. A French drain safeguards your landscaping by redirecting water to more suitable areas.
- Prevent Soil Erosion: By controlling water runoff, French drains help maintain the integrity of your soil, preventing erosion and preserving the aesthetics of your outdoor spaces.
- Foundation Protection: Water accumulation near your home’s foundation can compromise its structural integrity. French drains act as a protective barrier, ensuring your foundation remains secure.
