  4. Doesn’t the pipe need to be elevated back upwards at the end of the driveway?

  5. At @9:14 you are applying the fiber coated material on the seam. Is this the same as the liquid rubber you are applying @9:33 you are applying liquid rubber to the brick wall?

  8. What kind of fabric do pros recommend using? I am finding that just any landscaping fabric sold at Wal Mart or Home Depot is of really sh”””y quality. It will decompose in a year or two.

  17. The problem I am having, is that when the snow melts, it floods out my garage. So, what would work to stop that, the ground is froze in the winter up to 5-6 feet deep, so I don't think underground drainage pipes would work, or would they?

  18. A concrete rake would work way better for pushing that dirt back in there.

  19. If this was a house with a basement would you have to dig all the way down to the footer even if the damage was on the floor joists towards the top of the basement wall? I assume our drain tiles/sump pump are working well, but there's some standing water by the foundation causing this.

  25. Thank you for the great how-to. I recently discovered that the drainage around my foundation and bulkhead is all screwed up, leading to some water penetration in my basement. Refinishing the basement is a costly thing that I was hoping to do in 5 years, not 3 months… and while I'll have to hire a mason to re-do the hardscaping (that's sloped to get all of the water on my patio right against my basement window), I feel much better about using trenching and gravel to waterproof my exterior.

  26. That's because the utilities are on the other side. Always call 811 before you dig! Thanks

    Reply
  27. Do you not call to have buried utilities checked before you dig your trenches? Didn't see any utility markings.

    Reply
  32. what about freezing? if you do this kind of work in areas that get snow and ice do you have to bury the drainage deeper to prevent freezing?

  33. Chuck love you videos I wish you come back to a job when it pouring down rain and include it in video to really show folks the destructive power of Water. Just spent two years fighting city to get a 600 foot 6” tile running north against the natural flow. Lucky that it starts 3 feet below my yard and runs down .7 inches to outlet to District tile that had just been cleared and is a 12” drain that only has 4 inlets prior to exiting town and discharging into deep ditch that goes to creek 3 drains out of small town and most of town floods with standing water but I stood fast fought hard hired professional engineers and got it done. No more lake in my front yard when it pours Got to fight sometimes but nothing is impossible! The drain on my third connecting lot to North is 10 Feet deep ! Was a hell of a project but increased value of all my lots and no more septic problems and with building up slope around home that ties into tile and gutter system it’s finally done Thank you for your inspiring videos. I wish my project would of been as easy as this one! If one has no place to run drain to; don’t give up there is a way to solve problem. City would not let me go across street the legal way as backlash of 40 homes already having problems from that tile and it turned out for the best. I had to pay for the 600 Feet Of Pipe I signed and dated every darn piece of pipe in 3 places as it was installed in 2 days.

  35. Should have covered the pipe with fiber canvas to prevent small stones to cover the perforated tube during time..
