What are French Drains?

French drains are known by many names - filter drain, blind drain, surface drain, sub-surface drain, sub-soil drain, agricultural drain or French drain.

It is a trench laid with rocks and gravel and contains a perforated pipe to redirect water away from an area. Gravel and rocks filter the water and remove the debris. As they are laid out deep in the soil, they can redirect water efficiently, protecting building foundations and preventing soil erosion. They require low maintenance and occasional cleaning is sufficient to keep them working properly. They can be used in multiple ways:

  • Used to relieve ground water pressure around retaining walls
  • Used around the foundations
  • As an alternative to ditches and storm sewers
  • To disperse effluent from septic tanks

The perforated pipe allows a large volume of water to flow through them and prevents soil from clogging up the space between rocks. We install French drains and their different variations like curtain drain, collector drains and fin drains. If your backyard remains flooded after rains, gets excessive run-off from your neighbours or you have stormwater drainage issues, french drains can solve your problem.

How are French Drains installed?

The process is simple. Our plumbers will analyse your site and work out the specifics for installing the French drains. We will dig up the trenches - a deep trench is ideal to drain out groundwater while a shallow trench is required for rainwater.

We will line the trench with high-quality landscaping fabric. It allows the water to flow through and block debris and soil. Next, we will place the gravel and lay the perforated pipe. The drain is wrapped with landscaping fabric to keep the drain in a good condition for years to come. This is a general description of the process but it may vary from site to site.
