FRENCH DRAIN IN OKLAHOMA CITY, NORMAN, EDMOND, YUKON


 

 

 

Drainage Systems have several basic parts.

Water Entry

Water Transition

Water Exit

 

Water entry is the process where water enters the Drainage System.  This done with water entering drain pipe through a French Drain.  Water flows to a low area with a trench.  In the bottom of the trench is a Perforated French Drain Pipe with a liner or a soc.  Gravel or crushed limestone fills the trench on top of the French Drain Pipe.

Water can also enter a Drainage System through a Surface Drain.  Water flows to a Drainage Basin, falls through the grate and enters the Drainage Pipe below.

A third way for water to enter is to connect Gutter Down Spouts Directly into a Drainage System.
