How to Install A Crawl Space Drain System

  1. Dig the trench 5-6″ deep or deep enough to keep the drain pipe level and below the crawl space soil line
  2. Do not put dirt on top of the drain tile, leave it open or covered with pea stone
  3. Do not dig the trench at a slope to the basin, this will cause erosion and your pipe will be to deep for the basin
  4. You should bury the entire drain pipe in pea stone if:
    1. it does not have a “sock” on the pipe.
    2. the soil is mostly clay.
  5. If the drain pipe does have a sock (which it should for this application) then stone is not necessary on all of the pipe. This is because the sock does part of  stones job by filtering soil.

*This advice does not apply to every job, everywhere. Please check with your local building codes and local experts for final design.

What is crawl space encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is a generic term used to describe a crawl space that is protected from moisture by using a crawl space vapor barrier on the floor and walls. There are different ways to accomplish this, as well as different results, depending on the "system" you purchase. If you hire a company or franchise to finish your crawl space make sure you get the most for your money. Crawl space encapsulation alone will help reduce moisture and improve the environment of the crawl space, but there are other components to consider like; the quality of the crawl space vapor barrier, how to close the foundation vents permanently, crawl space insulation, sealing the crawl space vapor barrier to the foundation wall, conditioning the crawl space, crawl space moisture control and lowering the homes energy costs.
