Henry French and Wet Basement Waterproofing French drains
The earliest wet basement waterproofing French drains were simple ditches, pitched from a high area to a lower one filled with gravel.
These were described by Henry Flagg French (1813-1885) of Concord, Massachusetts in his book Farm Drainage.
Mr. French was very proud of his cellar drainage system where he surrounded a drain tile with gravel and kept his wet basement dry.
A French drain has perforated hollow pipes along the bottom to quickly vent water that comes from a rising water table.
French drains are common wet basement waterproofing drainage systems, used to prevent ground water from damaging foundations.
They are still called French drains to this day and are the standard for wet basement waterproofing.
