French Drain Installation
French drains are most frequently installed in one of two ways, depending on the construction of your New Jersey home. These are:
- Installed by being buried around the foundation, on the external side of the foundation.
- Installed around the inside perimeter of the basement underneath the basement floor.
External French drains can often last for ten years or longer without needing any maintenance, but they are also fairly likely to clog without warning, which can be a major problem. These clogs can eventually lead to flooding in your basement, which can cause tremendous structural damage.
Also, French drains often need to be installed with a sump pump. Otherwise, the drain relies on just gravity to help it drain water, which is a major problem if your home is located on a hill or near a steep incline.
