There are many styles of basement drains and there are just as many names for these systems. Some of the systems available are better at keeping your basement dry than others.

An exterior drainage system can do extensive damage to your lawn and cost you a lot of money. Interior drain systems eliminate those elements and do an amazing job at keeping your basement dry.

Interior drainage systems have a price tag that is about 50% less than exterior systems, can usually be installed in 2 days or less, and don't require you to dig up your yard.

How does an interior drainage system work?

A network of piping runs around the perimeter of your sub-floor area and along the bottom of the foundation walls. The water is channeled through this system to a sump pump that pushes the water out of your basement.

A no-clog basement french drain system installed in Longueuil

No-Clog French Drains

Some French drain systems have a large space along the floor that can fill with dirt, leaving your drains clogged.

Other systems are buried under the basement floor, resting in underlying mud aside from the concrete foundation footing and are easily clogged with mud and debris.

Our system:

  • Is installed on the foundation footing out of the mud and dirt.
  • Sits on top of a stone bedding, adding another "clean" layer to prevent clogging.
  • Has a 3/8" flange lip extends out to collect water and not dirt.

No-freeze basement drain discharge line in Terrebonne

IceGuard® Discharge Line Protection

If the drains and discharge lines of your drainage system are on the outside of your home, they are prone to freezing in the winter.

A frozen drain or discharge pipe will not allow water to pass through it. The water will back up and flood your basement and possibly burn out your sump pump because of over-use. A second release passage is needed.

Our system features:

  • A specially designed, external opening with a protective grating over it to let water run out.
  • Hands-free, automatic valves require no manual turning.
  • Doesn't let water escape during normal pump usage.

Water Collects Directly Into the Drain

Water and water vapor can seep into a basement through cracks in the walls, around plumbing insertions, through unsealed windows and doors, or just by seeping through the porous concrete.

Our system benefits:

  • A 3/8" extended lip or "flange" lets water collect from the walls directly into the system.
  • Works with installed vapor barriers.
  • Professional, polished appearance.

DryTrak® Drains for Other Basement Constructions

Many homes have the foundation floor and the footings poured as two separate pieces. Other homes have these elements built as one solid unit called a monolithic foundation. The footings of these foundations are quite massive.

Having a monolithic foundation does not allow for a sub-floor perimeter drain to be installed. There would be too much damage from digging. The recommended solution is installing a DryTrak® system. 

A DryTrak® system rests on top of the basement floor and lines the perimeter of your basement. It's attached to the floor making it secure and sturdy.

Our system benefits:

  • Made for a home with a monolithic foundation.
  • Usually installed in 2 days or less.
  • Permanent bonding with special epoxy.
