Hydrostatic Pressure Relief System – French Drains

Protect Your Home or Business from Water Intrusion

Surprisingly, one of the best ways to keep a basement dry doesn’t involve sealing, plugging or coating anything. Instead, it prevents hydrostatic pressure, which is what causes water to enter the basement in the first place.

A French drain, also called a drain tile and a hydrostatic pressure relief system, can be installed inside or outside the foundation. It creates a space to alleviate the pressure created by a rise in the water table underground, usually caused by heavy rains.

Correct Installation Is Critical

A French drain can keep most basements dry and never requires any significant maintenance or replacement. However, for it to be effective, it needs to be property installed in the beginning.

An experienced builder will first figure out where the excess water is pooling and then how and where to safely direct it.
