Clogged Drain Pipe at the Basement Footing

Clogged footing drain pipe

Previous Page     Next Page

As seen in the picture above, a footing drain rests just outside of a house’s foundation...n to the pipe?

The answer is nothing.  Unless you want to periodically excavate your yard down to the base of the foundation, ripping out any foliage and gardens around your house as well as porches, steps and anything else laid up against the foundation, leave piles of dirt in your yard, perform maintenance on the pipe, then backfill the soil back against the foundation (once again potentially damaging the foundation as rocks are backfilled and fluffing the backfilled soil again), there’s no way to maintain such a system. As this drain clogs more and more, the water problem gets worse and worse.
