How Do French Drains Work?
French drains are the most popular drainage system on the market due to their optimum water damage prevention results. To install a French drain, PVC pipe is laid inside of a dug out trench. The trench is then covered in gravel wrapped in fabric in order to prevent loose soil from collecting in the drain. In short, French drains use a pipe in the ground to channel invasive water away from your home to best protect your property from water damage.
