The most effective of the interior drainage systems is the Waer Trek installed inside the perimeter of the footing. This requires removing and replacing concrete at the slab edge. By placing the Water Trek drain pipe beneath the basement floor, it drains water before it comes into the basement. Similar to an exterior system, the drainage system connects to a sump or storm sewer. A critical component of this approach is the dimpled plastic cove placed at the base of the wall and beneath the slab edge. Dimpled cove is similar to a small egg crate and permits free drainage of the wall into the drain pipe. In low permeability soils, this system can accept rising groundwater using an aggregate layer under the slab.
HomeSpec's exclusive method for installing a below floor drain tile system beats all.

4" S&D Triple wall pipe is also very effective in managing water beneath the floor. We often use this 4" pipe next to the top of the footer (not on top). It has a smooth interior and is able to manage a large volume of water.
