FRENCH DRAIN


Posted by Bill Hudson on October 5th, 1997 09:41 PM

I NEED TO "BUILD" OR DIG A FRANCH DRAIN DOWN ONE SIDE
OF MY GARAGE TO STOP A LEAK AT THE CORNER BASE OF THE
GARAGE. TO HIRE SOMEONE TO DO IT IS HIDEOUSLY EXPENSIVE.
I FEEL AS THOUGH I COULD DO THIS MYSELF.THE AREA ALONG
THE SIDE OF THE GARAGE SLOPES DOWN TO THE ALLEY. I'VE
LOOKED AT 10' PIECES OF PVC PIPE WITH HOLES, OR
PERFORATIONS IN IT. AS FAR AS ANYTHING ELSE:
DEPTH OF THE TRENCH, TOOLS FOR DIGGING THE TRENCH,
ASSEMBLING THE DRAIN, HOW MUCH GRAVEL OR ROCKS TO USE,
I DON'T HAVE A CLUE. I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANY LITERATURE
ON THE SUBJECT, AND THE FOLKS AT THE LOCAL HOME DEPOT
DON'T SEEM TO KNOW MUCH EITHER.

I'D APPRECIATE ANY HELP OR SUGGESTION YOU MAY HAVE.

THANKS,

BILL
