Hi!
We're starting the process of excavating (apprx. 3 1/2 ft.) down, around
the perimeter of our foundation.
We're going to water-proof the wall and add drain tile (with gravel).
Is there any major difference between using corrugated plastic or
PVC pipe (both have holes on the top, both will have "fabric")?
I'd post pictures: but you don't want to see - we're "Hand-Digging it!! :)

Thanks! :)

either will work well at that depth,,, use NOTHING from the apron store for waterproofing the footer & walls UNLESS its trowel grade ( we like meadows or sonneborn ) the pipe MUST run to daylight & gravity drain otherwise you're just building a drywell about your very fine home's foundation & walls.

Hand-Digging pics would be fine IF we can look down her shirt :thumbup:

Thanks for the response {itsreallyconc}! :)
I'll get back to you!
Have you ever heard the term "Cretums"!?
(I might not have the exact spelling right)
Thanks!

No, not "cretins" or "cretans" -
back in the day (a while ago) - "cretums" that was the reference that the concrete workers (who were my friends and compatriots - I was one of them).
That's how we referred to ourselves! (It was an appellation of respect,
and acknowledgement! - guess what, we knew what "Cretins" were!).
(Who cares what "google" or "wikipedia" says - you had to be there)
How's that for spelling!
Best regards!

Spelling!
Spelling!
The next thing will be grammar!
(When I was in college - I wrote "grammatically", perfect papers, more than
once! - content was not that good - sorry!! - {Boo - hoo -hoo!} :)
SPELLING!?!
Ha, Ha, Ha!
(The next thing, will be "Sentence Structure"!!!)

Yeah - local term! :)
"jabonies"!?! - out here in the "sticks" - it was "jamoch"! :)
Seriously - thanks for the info!
(Luckily - it's been a while since I had to play around with drain tile!)
Thanks again! :)
