Drain Water From Foundation Blocks

With each system we install, we drill drainage holes in the bottom of each and every cavity of the block where it meets the foundation. This allows water to flow freely into the drain tile and sump basin where it can be safely, efficiently and permanently pumped away from your house.

With a poured concrete wall the drain holes are not necessary. Our patented Diamond Drainage Board allows the water that infiltrates at the cold joint to move across the footing and into the drainage medium.
