Exterior french drain rock and foundation wall care

Hello, the past week I have dug around my foundation to the footer and have the correct slope leading out and I have pressure washed my walls ect. Now im ready to put it all back together. First question is im applying a foundation coating to my "Pressure washed" walls, is there anything else that goes over the black stuff? I have a friend that used some kinda foam stuff. Second question, I have bought the filter fabric to line the hole up the sides and over my gravel and I have purchased the solid pipe and sock for over the pipe. What I want to know is when I line the hole with the landscape fabric do I then put a thin layer of gravel down OR do I lay the pipe right on top of the landscape fabric? I know gravel goes on top and its sides ect. then the faberic is then folded over the rock kinda like a giant burreto...

The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
