Wet basement waterproofing with a French drain
The interior French Drain is a widely accepted technique in mitigating basement water and is generally referred to as a basement waterproofing solution. The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent water from flooding your basement. It is installed inside the basement, below the floor, around the perimeter.
This French Drain controls the water, delivers it to the sump pump(s), and discharges it out of the house.The sump pump should be one part of a complete waterproofing system. A sump pump alone is not effective to lower the water table under the house and prevent water infiltration.
