Replacing footer drain around basement
For those of you who have seen Kat_WV posts before, I am not her. I'm her husband. I'm just using her account. Our basement leaks and I've recently excavated 7 feet down to replace the old terra cotta tile drain around the footer with a new drainage product called Smart Drain. You can look at it on their website www.smartdrain.com. The website does a fairly good job of explaining the system. My question is has anyone out there used this system? I tested it in my garage and it seemed to work as advertised. But I got nervous and put the standard pvc drain system next to it and a cleanout which will allow me to observe both outlets with a camera. In a few years I'll be interested to see which is performing better. Any thoughts, comments, experience out there? I'm all ears.
