The Context

Foundation and basement drainage innovation: a flexible drain with smooth interior

The installation of a building drainage system at the foot of the foundations allows you to channel and evacuate the excess of water in order to avoid stagnation of the captured water and prevent damage to the foundation. Formwork contractors have many options when it comes to perforated drains, like high-density polyethylene (HDPE) drains and traditional perforated rigid drains. Passionate retailer of Soleno’s HDPE products, Bernard Ouellet opted instead to use the new SoliFlex Type 3 flexible drain for his new home foundations in Saint-Antonin, Quebec.

The Solution

Jeannot Ouellet, owner of Construction Jeannot Ouellet, therefore proceeded to the installation of about 60 m (197 ft) of SoliFlex Type 3 drain of 100 mm (4 in) in diameter. He also installed a 100 mm (4 in) diameter access chimney, connected to the foundation drain, as well as some couplers and accessories, at the footings of the new house foundations. A TX-80 separation geotextile was put in place to cover the clean stone covering the foundation drain.

Installation completed in less than a half-day

The installation of the SoliFlex is simple and quick, even if it is a little more rigid than a traditional corrugated drain; with its smooth interior, it is clearly more efficient.

I preferred to have the drainage access chimney installed, because should any problem occur, it offers me one more option.
