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.
