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! :-)
Completed French drain run, under the gutters, around the foundation where the basement was leaking during heavy rains.
Problem has been solved!
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.
French drain and downspout extension in progress.
Before work began. Rainwater was eroding soil on the side of the house and the downspout was discharging on the corner of the foundation causing a hydrostatic pressure leak in the basement.

Completed downsout extension gets rainwater from your roof & gutters to drain "away" from your foundation!
Same job. Another completed view.
Downspout extension being installed with a "pop-up" water discharge elbow at the appropriate grade.
Note we use only outside solid pvc pipe. No corrugated black pipe is used. Corrugated pipe tends to clog after only a few years.
Before the downspout extension was installed rainwater was running along the right side of the house and eroding the soil under their back patio.
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! :-)
