It’s inevitable — a home will be surrounded by water repeatedly over the years. Whether it seeps in through walls or up through the floor, water can easily turn an otherwise useful space into a damp, uncomfortable haven for mold and mildew. No matter what construction technique is chosen for building a foundation, a drainage system is imperative to help prevent moisture problems.

 

The Form-A-Drain® Drainage System offers the solution for your foundations that will give you peace of mind. The system effectively collects and expels water away form the foundation, helping to ensure a dry, healthy basement for years to come.

Form-A-Drain is the 3-in-1 foundation solution that forms footings, provides an integrated drainage system and can be easily adapted to vent radon where needed.

ABOUT THE FORM-A-DRAIN® DRAINAGE SYSTEM

An outstanding alternative to perforated pipe, the Form-A-Drain system offers water intake capacity comparable to traditional drain pipe, with one-step installation.

  • Designed for the most effective collection and discharge of water, drainage is located level with the top and on both sides of the footing

  • Slotted-wall construction allows water collection at the footing.

  • Collected water flows through its hollow core to the drainage outlet, where it is safely discharged away from the home.

 

START OFF ON THE RIGHT FOOTING

The Form-A-Drain® system, our 3-in-1 drainage product, helps keep basements dry by performing the two most vital protection functions for a foundation: moving moisture away and draining it at the footing.

PERMANENT & PRECISE FOOTING FORMS

Designed for installation before basement construction begins, Form-A-Drain Plus consists of lineal sections installed as the foundation footing forms. Unlike standard wood forms, Form-A-Drain Plus lineals stay in place permanently after completion of the concrete pour and form a complete sub-slab perimeter loop around the foundation.

Since it stays in place, Form-A-Drain Plus also shaves valuable time from the construction schedule; there’s no need for a crew to return the next day to remove, strip, clean and transport forms to the next jobsite.

RADON REDUCTION

Because Form-A-Drain Plus stays in place after the footing is poured, it’s in the perfect position to perform as part of a radon reduction system. Simply add a single outlet to one of the inner Form-A-Drain Plus lineals and connect it to dedicated vent pipe, as described in the Form-A-Drain installation guide.
