An Interior, Perimeter Drain System for Basement Waterproofing
Generally speaking, if you already live in your home and you’re looking to waterproof your basement, having an interior, perimeter drain system installed will be one of the best ways to waterproof your space. This type of system is usually an alternative to having a French drain tile system installed, which is installed on the exterior of the home and requires heavy excavation. Since this method is so disruptive to the home, an interior system is normally preferred.
When an interior drain system is installed, first the contractor will need to create a trench around the perimeter of the basement. Then, the contractor will install the drain pipe in this trench. Then, the drain pipe will be connected to a sump pump, which will pump the water out of the collection bin and away from the home. As you can see, the interior drain system is just a way for groundwater to be channeled.
