How far under the basement slab is a typical footer?


Thanks for that. That is exactly what I am trying to do... The question is, do I drill out the core of the block even though its not very close to the footer?

The plan is to dig about 1.5 feet under the slab and lay the drain tile.

Thanks again!

Also, does anyone know where I can buy dimple board for my walls? I've seen places online but they only sell in bulk.

Thanks.
