Edmond Oklahoma has been the location for many French Drain Installations for CMG in the past several years. Recently we ripped out an old Surface Drain that was under a deck. The Surface Drain was too small for the job and did not Protect the Foundation from Standing Water.
The First step was to take out part of the deck along the wall. Next we took out the Surface Drain and the Three Inch Pipe which was too small. Digging a trench along the foundation came next. We had to ensure the, "Fall" to make sure the water would run from left to right.
Next a French Drain Liner needed to be installed. This was necessary to maintain the integrity of the trench and to keep the French Drain Pipe from filling up with sand and getting clogged over the next few years. CMG then installed 4 inch ADS Perf/Soc French Drain Pipe along the course of the French Drain. Next we connected the end of the French Drain Pipe to Solid 4 Inch ADS Drain pipe to continue along the trench to the Pop-Up Emitter at the Exit Point.

The Structural Engineer recommended a French Drain to protect and draw water away from the foundation. He said that, "he had recommended French Drain Installation to solve similar problems for home owners many times in the past. The Structural Engineer was confident that it would solve the Drainage Problem.
Next, our customer went online and found us by searching under, " Norman Oklahoma French Drain." He also checked us out on Angie's List and Found that we were one of the highest ranked Drainage Contractors in the state of Oklahoma for installing French Drains.

We also recommended a surface drain in a corner where water was coming off a steep part of the roof and overwhelming the gutter.

The customer let us know that he was ready to move forward. We scheduled the Drainage System Installation for the following week. When the scheduled day arrived, we installed the Drainage System. The Drain was made up of a 6 inch French Drain running 30 feet along the East side of the house. It curved around the corner of the house. At that point a 12 inch Surface Drain was connected to the French Drain with 4 inch pipe. The 6 inch French Drain at that point changed to 6 inch Solid Drain Pipe and continued under ground 65 feet to a pop-up emitter at the curb in the front yard near the street.
