What is Footing Drain & Why Do They Clog?

Under heavy rainfalls, rainwater seeps into the ground and gather against your basement foundation. Footing drains are designed to collect and carry that water away from the foot of the foundation to a nearby sewer system. Otherwise, the water will find its way into the basement through narrow gaps or cracks.

Excavation & Backfilling

During the excavation process, the soil is removed to make space for the basement foundation. The footing is installed surrounding the foundation and the soil is backfilled against the foundation wall. Without the proper technique, the footing pipe can be crushed during the backfilling process, making it useless.

Moreover, the soil backfilled is much more looser and less tightly packed than the soil that has remained untouched. This soil is more permeable to water, meaning it absorbs more water and allows more water to gather up against the foundation wall.

Footing Drain Clogs

Footing drains are well-known for clogging because along with the rainwater, particles in the soil and small rocks enter the drainage system which accumulates over time. Eventually, mud and slit and particles clog the drain, making the drainage process inefficient. If the waterway is blocked, the water pressure will force to enter the basement through crevices or any openings near the foot of the foundation or the wall.
