This is a "catch basin" drain system. This customer had water pooling in the yard, in several places, after every rain.

Completed discharge lines draining water from the French drain and downspout extensions away from the foundation.
This is a completed French drain. The grade of this customers front yard had water running towards their house. This caused a hydrostatic pressure leak in the basement. This drain now catches that water and diverts if around to the right rear corner of the property where it drains away from the home safely.
No More Water in the Basement! :-)
Before the French drain was installed rainwater was draining towards the foundation causing a hydrostatic pressure leak where the basement wall and basement floor meet.
French drain completed. Downspout is connected to the drain also.

Note we use only outside solid pvc pipe. No corrugated black pipe is used. Corrugated pipe tends to clog after only a few years.
Completed French drain installation and downspout extensions to catch water that was running towards the foundation causing the basement to leak after heavy rains.
The water is now being caught in the French drain and delivered harmlessly to a lower elevation on the property "away" from the foundation! :-)
