Water Proof Basement

April 30, 2011

Drain tile not only at the footer but a few feet away from the house footers as well. Drain tile at the footer still allows water to come in contact with the concrete touching the home. Drain tile 2 feet out will prevent water from touching the home (but may make soil above incredibly dry limiting landscaping).

Gutters go into PVC to drain water far away from the home.
