When the high water table comes through the unsealed foundation to give you a wet basement
The level of the water table varies greatly due to amount of rainfall, time of the year and type of soil that surface water drains through.
The water table is generally higher in areas with high density soil related to clay content.
When the water table rises, it does not just rise at your house, because it did not rain on your house only.
The thing to understand here is that the high water table is part of the earth and cannot be graded away.
High water tables are often above the level of basement floors which is why you get a wet basement.
How a French Drain can lower the water table under the wet basement floor
The drainage pipe of the French Drain is place alongside the footings at approximately 6-8” below the wet basement floor level.
The water under the basement floor gets pumped away at that level before it comes up to the floor level.
A French drain is much unlikely to clog than an exterior perimeter drain partially due to the fact that it is not sitting underneath several feet of soil.
