Foundation Drainage Info ?
Posted by Geoff on August 22, 2001 at 16:12:55:
Does anyone know of a book or other resource that would help me design a perimeter drain system around my foundation?

As important as foundation drainage is I'm finding it very difficult to find a definitive source for information on the subject. There seem to be many discrepancies in the advice I'm getting regarding slope of the pipe, orientation of pipe perforations ( up vs. down ), waterproofing membranes, geotextiles etc.

Is there a resource that discusses these issues in a rigorous fashion so that I'll be able to make the most informed decisions that I can?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you.
