I want to add a drain at the beginning next to my stoop,and maybe a pop up at the end. Is it necessary.

Asked by: Janice
Collecting water via a catch basin and draining the water via EZ-Drain or pipe to a Pop-Up Emitter is a very common solution. The solution is often dependent on the grade of the surrounding soil. If the desired release point is downhill from the area where the water is pooling, then the described solution should work.

How far should you place the pipe from a foundation or cellar door. I have a low spot by the door and water getting into basement on heavy downpoors

Asked by: Oschmidt
I have installed this product as foundation/footing drains with poor success. In theory the product appears to make since for the application. However, if one studies the pipe's configuration, it physically cannot move water away from the structure. The water does indeed enter the filter fabric and the styrofoam gravels which surround the black pipe. But the water must exceed a depth of 2"+/- in order to enter the perforated pipe and then it cannot move to the next section because the transfer is blocked by earthen back-fill material placed around the exposed joint of the pipe. In hind sight, I should have installed real gravel around the joint. Perhaps that might allow the water to flow ... I have inquired to the manufacturer in this matter but have received little or no reply. Respectfully submitted, Tim

Is there a certain way to lay in the ground

Asked by: Lar
There is not a top or bottom to the product. The 2 common mistakes that people make when installing this product are: 1 - When installing in a soil with high clay or silt content you will need to first line the trench and then install the product. 2 - When installing in a soil with high clay or silt content do not back fill with the clay soil. You want to backfill with permeable soil.

4 in. x 10 ft. Prefabricated French Drain with Pipe is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Footing drain continuity It appears to me the interior pipe's invert lies about 2" above the bottom of the unit or about 2" above the top of the footing. This would allow water to accumulate to a depth of 2" before it can access or enter the interior 4" pipe. How does the water get from one section of this pipe assembly to the next? Because of the way these units connect end to end or turn a corner, this cannot happen unless gravel is placed around each joint but then the water would still remain at a depth of 2" or so unless the entire assembly is placed so it can drain to daylight. And with water standing at the base of a masonry wall, its natural tendency if to wick upward into the block or concrete. Is this a accurate observance on my part? Kindly reply, Tim Shaw

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clogs quickly Don't buy this, just buy gravel, a drainage sock, and perforated pipe separately. We installed two french drains. One with this prefabricated drain. The other was gravel, a drainage sock, and the perforated pipes all purchased separately, since we had some leftover gravel . The traditional drain worked extremely well. This one performed horribly. It clogged completely with soil, whereas the separately purchased drain sock performed well. I have three theories: 1. The drain sock included in this prefabricated drain is lower quality than the one we purchased separately. 2. The foam pellets in this drain gets compressed when placed, reducing it's ability to drain water compared to gravel which doesn't compress. 3. The drainage sock on the pipe rather than around the foam allows the gravel to filter some sediment without clogging the sock. In any case, don't buy this, just buy the perforated pipe, sock, and gravel separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well--Saves Time and Back We had lots of rain here in Central Florida due to Tropical Storm Debby. Improper grading and previous homeowner neglect had water pooling around the foundation and seeping into the house. A French drain was needed, and after digging the trench, we didn't look forward to shoveling gravel and more dirt on top of a drain pipe. Saw this at Home Depot and decided to give it a try. This item worked great! Before placing it in the trench, we put down some landscape fabric, then placed it in the trench and covered with dirt and extra dirt for grading away from house. As it continues to rain, there is nothing seeping into the house! Since this was only 10 feet long, we had to buy a connector and direct the water further away from the house. All in all, a good product. If you don't want to deal with gravel, this works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 Things to be careful about This product is a great idea- I did the calculation and if I'd used gravel, normal perforated pipe and the landscape fabric, I'd have save a few dollars for each 10 foot section. No brainer. I had two challenges in using this: 1. My yard doesn't have much slope, so I had to be very careful to ensure the drain was correctly pitched. To do this I ended up buying gravel, mostly b/c its much easier to adjust your slope with gravel than with dirt. 2. When you plan your french drain, unless you're going into a dry well, its going to be tricky to have this product drain at ground level, b/c of the way it is completely encased in the 'drain' section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the simplest installations ever I did a lot of research on how to install a French Drain and ordered all the parts that I needed online. When I went to pick up my order at the store I realized I need another part. My original design was to use a Corrugated HDPE Drain Pipe and fill the trench that the pipe goes in with gravel. This would mean that I would have to buy at minimum a half dozen bags of gravel and tote them home with me in my car (no truck). While looking for the part I discussed my installation design with the Home Depot plumbing expert and he suggested a different product that what I ordered. He pointed me to the NDS Quick and Easy 10’ pipe. I purchased and installed the pipe without the extra effort of adding the gravel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works I used this as a footing drain around my foundation. Having used stone and rigid pvc with more stone and filter fabric in the past, this was an incredibly easy product to install. Make a level trench, backfill with clean fill until 6" covered and your done. even bends pretty well around corners. Buy some extra snap ties and you can cut custom lengths to serve your need. If this came on rigid pvc i would pay extra for the added durability. I'm not a fan of corrugated pipe due to the sloppy fittings and sags inherent with this pipe. I Tee'd this together around the foundation and then made my own transition to PVC out to the drywell. (also part of this system.)
