What Are Calgary French Drain Systems ?

French drains are simple systems that are comprised of a ditch in the ground, with a perforated pipe inside, all covered with gravel. This ditch collects water, that is filtered through the gravel into the pipe, and directed to a set drainage area away from your home, such as a city sewer, rain barrel or drainage ditch.

If you notice pooling of water on your property, you may want to explore the French drain system to collect this water before it can move back towards your foundation wall.

How to Install French Drain Calgary ? 

French Drain Installation
One common spot to install a French drain is between your house and a neighbor’s house. Water may pool there during rain fall and have nowhere to move, risking a possible situation where it pools against your foundation. French drains can collect this water and move it down towards the sewer on the street.

French drain installation is a simple process that starts with the digging of a trench. A slope must be involved, moving water towards a chosen drainage location. This is where professional waterproofing contractors are required, to ensure a proper slope for the setup and also the correct angle of installation.

Finally, ensure that the stone in the French drain is covered with landscaping fabric which will discourage the growth of weeds in the system that can cause problems down the road.

Damage Prevention
French drains can also prevent damage to your landscaping by moving water off of your property to a drainage point. Standing or pooling water on your property can cause erosion of soil, damage to your grading, or damage to your grass or garden.

Landscaping Fabric
Ensure your trench and dry well are properly lined with landscaping fabric to discourage the growth of weeds and this will also help to filter debris from clogging the gravel and preventing the water from absorbing into the ground
