Strip Drain Groundwater Drainage

DrainGuard strip drain is a modular groundwater water collection system. DrainGuard consists of a dimpled high impact polystyrene core with a nonwoven polypropylene geotextile filter fabric wrapped around it to form a drainage channel.

Groundwater is collected and diverted to either sump pump or it drains to daylight. Polypropylene fittings connect DrainGuard to 4" pipe.

1 Inch Drainage Core

A 1" "dimpled" core forms the basis of DrainGuard. The crush resistant polystyrene construction resists rot, earth, compaction and soil contaminates.

Non-Woven Geotextile

The geotextile wraps around the core, forming a space for groundwater to collect inside and flow away from the foundation. Water is directed to either a sump system or running to daylight. Soils are kept out of the hollow space created by the geotextile.

Together, the 1" core and geotextile create an easy to install drainage system that eliminates the need for labor intensive gravel.

 

DrainGuard Advantages

Lower Cost Than Pipe and Stone

Installation plus materials is typically 50% less than pipe and 4" corrugated pipe.
