perimeter drainage

In reply to drainage at foundation by Jim on August 6th, 1999 12:12 AM [Go to top of thread]

First, thanks for the good info- it got me started.
But I have another question:I dug down to the footing
of the foundation(I think that's what it's called),
where I've come across a layer of rocks. Below the
rocks I found a black plastic (ribbed) pipe with
slits cut into the top of the pipe,- about every
2inches. I believe it's part of what is called a
perimeter drainage system. For my case, I believe,
that should be sufficient drainage and I don't
have to dig below this level. By the way, where
does this perimeter-type drainage system drain,
i.e. away from the house?
