How Do French Drains Work?

While a French drain is a simple system, it actually works to protect your home around the clock by removed the water. A French drain is a gravel-filled trench with a slotted pipe. This pipe allows water to move from your home to a safe area. Typically placed near your home, this drain helps to prevent flooding and water from seeping into your foundation. French drains help to prevent water from collecting around your home and saturating the ground by moving them to a specific area of your property where it can’t do any damage. These drains will work to remove the surface water toward the lowest portion of your property so it doesn’t cause any lasting damage. Unlike other drains, French drains collect water throughout its entire length instead of just at the ends.
