Recently we had a customer in Oklahoma City who had water from her neighbors yard that would wash under her fence and into her pool in the back yard. Every time she had a hard rain her swimming pool would fill up with Storm Water and mud.
After diagnosing her Drainage Problem and providing a Free Estimate, She decided to move forward with the Drainage System Installation.
|Installing Curb Fitting For French Drain|
|Installing Cement around the Curb Fitting of the French Drain|
French Drain installation is a big focus for CMG during our 21st year in business. A French Drain is one part of a Drainage System. A French Drain can be connected to other types of Drains or Gutter Down-Spouts and then run through Drain Pipe to an Exit point where the water is released.
A Drainage Exit Point is the area where water goes to be released when it comes out of the Drainage System. The two most common exit points for a Drainage System are a Pop-Up Emitter or a Curb Fitting.
A Pop-Up Emitter is a Fitting on the end of a Drain Pipe that has a lid that pops up and releases water. When water drainage is complete, the lid shuts back.
CMG Installed a Double Six inch French Drain in Edmond this week. A Double Six Inch French Drain is two six inch French Drains laid side by side in one very wide and deep trench. It is designed to move a huge amount of water away from a home. The CMG customer had several different drainage problems in their back yard. After a thunderstorm, water would run under their back fence and into their garage. The back yard was on a steep hillside and the water would run very fast down the hill and into the garage. CMG installed 2 large six inch French Drains across the water's path. This allowed the water to be diverted into the French Drain which then ran through drain pipe to a curb outlet at the street. Three Gutter Down Spouts were connected into the French Drain. The French Drain created a protective barrier for the garage. A 12 inch Surface Drain was also included in the Drainage System. It was placed up against the driveway and connected with 4 inch Solid drain pipe to the 6 inch French Drain. Water was completely rerouted away from the home. A French Drain and Surface Drain combination in this case was the best solution to this particular drainage problem.
