French drain
Posted by Earl on December 19, 19100 at 12:28:57:
I own an older home and the water is a problem in the basement. I have been told that the best thing to do is put in a french drain.
1. How far from the wall must it be?
2. How deep?
3. What is the best tool?
4. If a concrete saw is used, is a diamond
blade better?
I have read about drilling holes and putting on vinal strips and have it drain in the sump. I think $11.00 is a bit to much for a 4' 6'' piece of plastic. And the rest of the kit is also costly.
Thanks for the assistance,
Earl wet in PA!
