Tips To Install A French Drain

Installing French drains is the ideal way to redirect surface and standing water away from your home and landscape while preserving the aesthetic of your property. Although this project can be labor-intensive, the end result will be well worth the effort.

Before you begin, it’s important to research local building codes, request any necessary permits, review drainage regulations, and get an understanding of possible impacts on adjacent properties.

  • Determine The Problem: To start, you’ll want to locate where water has been pooling or flooding in order to plan for where your drain needs to go.
  • Clean The Area: Next, you’ll need to clear space for proper placement by removing any existing obstacles such as shrubs or grass in the area.
  • Locate The Area: Your trench should dictate the length of pipe needed and should always slope from the lower part of your property uphill toward an outlet point like a dry well or retention pond.
  • Cover The French Drain: Finally, cover your French drain with gravel or crushed stone up until it reaches ground level before capping off with dirt and rebuilding any features that were removed prior.

With this methodical process kept in mind, your French drain is sure to keep surface water out of reach!

How To Maintain Your French Drain

Maintaining a French drain installed correctly and inspected, is relatively easy.

  • Inspect the French drain annually. Ensure that all components from the sump pump to the drain pipe are in working order and free from debris.
  • If necessary, contact our French drain contractors to do a quick inspection as well as a free estimate for any services or repairs if needed.
  • Keep the French drain clean by clearing out any leaves or sediment that may have built up over time. This can be done by simply hosing down the French drain area.
  • Make sure to check for any exposed sections of the perforated pipe – if there are any uncovered sections simply use some dirt or gravel to cover them up again.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Depending on your drainage needs, the French drain system can be installed properly to ensure it works efficiently for many years. Cleaning your French drain should be done on an annual basis to maintain optimal drainage capabilities.

When you first install a new French drainage system, it’s important to regularly clean it during its first year of operation as this can often determine how well it functions when compared to other drainage systems. In addition, using sump pumps can also aid in pushing water out of the basin. 

If you have a slope in your yard that is continuously wet, a French drain can help to redirect water away from the area. Likewise, if you experience serious flooding in a particular area it could benefit from this drainage solution. Retaining walls are often used to address issues with sloping yards, but French drains are necessary when there is standing water.
