French Drain Installation has been an area of focus for CMG for the past 21 years.  During that time we have installed over 2000 French Drains in the Oklahoma City area. A French Drain is one of several types of Drains that can make – up a Drainage System.   French Drains are intended to move large amounts of water away from a Problem Drainage Area.  Water may be standing in that area, flowing across the area on the surface, or flowing across the area below ground or “Sub Surface.”  A French Drain can remove Standing Water, Water Flow at ground level, or water flow below ground level. (Surface Drains can’t do this!)

Recently we installed a Double Six inch French Drain in Edmond.  A Double French Drain is simple.  Instead of installing one French Drain Pipe, You install two French Drain Pipes side by side in the same trench.  This is necessary when trying to divert a large volume of water that is moving fast down a steep incline or hill.  The Trench is wider and deeper than normal and can handle a huge volume of water.   A Double French Drain also may be considered when trying to protect a home or important building from potential flooding.  Many times the installation of two French Drains side by side is overkill.  It is done to ensure the customer has piece of mind and never has to worry about potential flooding.

A French Drain many is  used to move water away from or protect foundations.  A French Drain will move both Surface Water and Sub Surface water away from a buildings foundation to an Exit Point where the water can be released without doing damage.
