French Interior Drain Installation Service
The French indoor drain installation service offered by Fissure Expert is an effective and less intrusive way to manage groundwater and runoff that can cause damage to your property. This solution, built entirely inside the basement of your building, avoids the need to excavate the entire outer perimeter.
Our procedure involves creating a trench in the concrete slab that runs along your foundation walls. It is in this trench that we install a perforated French drain. We ensure that the trench has a slope directing water to a pit specially designed to accommodate a sump pump.
We mainly use a narrow but considerable height drain system, allowing a smaller opening in the concrete slab while ensuring very efficient water drainage and hydrostatic pressure management.
Following installation, we carefully close the trench to restore the original appearance of your basement.
Like the outdoor foundation drain, which is widespread in Quebec, the French indoor drain serves as an effective barrier against water infiltration. It consists of a perforated pipe covered with stone to prevent obstruction by impurities and is located under the existing concrete slab of the foundation.
The system collects groundwater and runoff water that could seep into the basement and routes it to a sump pump, which evacuates it out of the basement. The ultimate goal is to keep your foundation dry and protected.
