The FlowGuard®: Thin Floor Basement Drain System

What It Does:

For most basements, we recommend jackhammering the perimeter of the basement floor and placing a French drain system on top of the foundation's footing.

However, if a concrete floor slab is very thin, a standard drain will not be able to sit on top of the footing. If it does, it will extend too far up above the floor slab.

Advantages To Our System:

  • Fits Easily Under The Floor Slab
  • A Wall Flange Collects Water From Walls
  • Ideal For Thin Basement Floors
  • Avoids Issues With The "Mud Zone"
  • Fast, Effective Installation

In cases like this, we'll usually recommend our FlowGuard Thin Floor Drain System. This is a thin, modified form of our typical drain system that can be installed in front of the foundation footing.

This drainage channel is designed to collect water from the basement walls via a wall flange. This flange directs collected water to a drain system that rests in a bed of clean drainage gravel.

We can provide a permanent solution that looks great!

We Restore Your Floor!

Once our installation crew has installed your drain system under the basement floor, we'll restore the removed portion of the slab with fresh concrete.

Addressing The "Mud Zone"

Since this drain system is installed in front of the foundation footer, it exists within the "mud zone", where mud under the floor can potentially clog the perimeter drain.

To avoid any issues, we install a thick layer of drainage stone underneath and around the drain. The unique design of this drain system also helps this system avoid clogging issues.

Flooding Through Floor Cracks

While most floor cracks will stop leaking once a drain system has been installed, we can customize your system to address areas of concern.

In cases where a large crack has become a concern, we can create a lateral line under the floor. This drainage line runs from the crack to your sump pump system, redirecting the water before it can flood up onto your visible floor surface.
