Quite a few lessons learned while installing this drain, number one being: ALWAYS CHECK WEATHER FORECASTS!
Not doing so probably set me back by a couple of days...
Also, for a drain this long (roughly 40m in total) it's worth hiring an excavator - as to do this by hand would have been hellish

For 30 years I thought you were meant to rush into every job, cut corners and ignore the potential issues 2 yrs down the line🤭. Your steady and meticulous work is great to watch and a good lesson.

Nicely done. Others have mentioned the desirability of geotextile wrap and of siting the pipe at the base of the trench. My observation would be that the soakaway may prove a bit small for the area being drained, and a way to see this would be to sink a vertical piece of perforated soil pipe into it to its base. Lifting a cap placed over the top would allow you to see the water level. A refinement would be to add a float inside the pipe with a rod set into it, cut to a length that it just protrudes through a hole in the cap when the soakaway is empty. The rod will then rise up out of the hole as the soakaway fills to give a readily visible gauge. And your observations of this will tell you when the pipe is silting up.

This might clog up eventually as your meant to use a membrane to seperate the clay from the gravel. The clay will be allowed to mix with the gravel over time and will block the water from reaching the pipe. It was lot of hard work. I hope it stays good for you.

I was thinking of that as well. They could've also used pipes that come with coconut fiber around it that acts as the clay filtering membrane.

couple things wrong to know for next time, the rock creating the slope at the bottom of the ditch do nothing as the clay is what the water will run on, so basically the ditch has to fill up before it runs away instead of following a slope. Next is you need drain cloth or weedmat encasing the rock and pipe otherwise it will all just eventually fill with silt and dirt and do nothing.
Ed Yıl önce
As many have pointed it out, the fine sediment will collect at the bottom reducing the flow over time, but most importantly, the plant/tree roots will clog it even faster by seeking the lower water table. But hey, it will do the job for some time.

Really enjoying your videos. Thank you! The only thing I would have done differently on your French drain would be the addition of drainage fabric first in your trench, then place your grade drainage gravel, then the perforated pipe cover with gravel, then fold over the fabric like a burito (shout out to the French drain guy, great videos too), then top with finished stone, soil or what ever. This will keep your drainage stone from sitting in. Never use a ”socked” pipe. Keep up the great videos. Editing and presentation is amazing.

Well done Mr Rogers. There is a recommend plumbing fall for drainage pipe. Both too much fall or too fall little affects silting. The water needs to travel at a rate that carries silt with it. It's ideal to work within those parameters but often the contour determines what can be done. I thought you were doing this with your string line. Anyway great work. I wish I owned a digger!

Given it's been two years, perhaps a follow up? I'm curious on how the water worked it's way out of the bottom of the hill. It seems to me that the water would collect and be directed to the bottom, but without anyplace for it to go, it would percolate up thru the dirt and onto the road.

Super vidéo d'explication pour la réalisation d'un drain longeant la route. La prise en compte des moments répétitifs en mettant en place des accélérations et passage un peu lassant est une très bonne idée afin de rester objectif et garder ainsi le public. Sinon, pour la partie technique de réalisation, il aurait été préférable pour perdurer la durée d'utilisation du drain, de mettre en place un géotextile autour du fourreau pour éviter d'obstruer les percements et permettre de drainer au maximum pour une meilleure efficacité et sur une plus longue durée de vie... continue tes vidéos, c'est super... 😁😉

Thank you for sharing these wonderful videos of your very expertly done work on ( what appears to be ) an old Belgian or French Farm house. What made me realize most in this series is that we were "...not in Kansas any more Toto...." was your digging the trench for the French Drain. I believe it was 5 or 6 inches ( 15 Centimeters ) of top soil, and the BAM a solid mass of absolutely pure ceramic grade clay. In my part of the world ( Pacific Northwest USA ) the average Basalt Jory topsoil is 60+ inches ( 150 Centimeters ). This creates a completely different water abortion issue that you do not have there. Thankfully you have a helpful and trusted Dog Helper to manage the work process.

Here's an old farmer's trick for finding level over long distances. I'll use your ditch as an example. Get a sufficient length of clear plastic hose (1/2" or 5/8" diameter is large enough). Affix one end of the hose to the top of the stake at the top end of the ditch. String the hose to the stake at the bottom end of the ditch, and affix the hose to the top of the stake. Then fill the hose with water until the hose is nearly full. Since water levels itself, simply mark both stakes even with the water level in the hose. Voila -- perfectly leveled marks on the two stakes.

Hard work, Carl! .-) But I'm puzzled: why didn't you redirect the rainwater, using the same pipe, to an underground water tank - which you ought to build!- a pond, or the septic tank? In summer that water will become useful. Water is after all a commodity.

I was just sitting here thinking about how much of a hassle this project would have been here in the US. Start with getting drawings done and certified by an engineer. Get permission from the County to terminate your drain in their ditch, written of course, AFTER their engineers review your drawings, look at the site, and produce THEIR official drawings to go with yours. Have the proposed site inspected to ensure that you are not going to alter some critter's habitat. Purchase the work permits. Have the empty ditch inspected. Have the rock fill and pipe installation inspected. Have the final product inspected. Have any changes documented and submitted to the original engineer so that "AS-Built" plans can be generated. Submit the original and as-builts to the county for records. This is all for drainage. Lord help you if you are actually working with a sanitary sewer. For this you would add another engineer or two, a few more permits, a few more inspections. Figure a few thousand US dollars to get to the point where you could actually start up the digger and start work.

Haha, good analysis! I've often wondered watching Jesse and Andrew doing similar work on private property where no one else but the owner will ever set foot on, and the kind of permissions and inspections one needs, the codes and what not bureaucratic BS one has to follow. Yeah, this one went comparatively smooth - so far.

idea - you should be raising the center of the road, not skimming to fill. Maybe when you are done, lay a layer over the center of the road to make it a little high in the center and then the water will run off the sides and hopefully help to keep the road dry - just thinking outloud. good luckj.

I wouldn`t have worried about the water, once the drain is in the water will be gone. If you were concerned about the sides collapsing, then complete that part first with the pipe sticking out the ground at the end of the trench. And geo textile, Terram or similar, is the way to go. I built 300 houses in a place called New Springs, any time we broke ground , water appeared. I wore wellies every day for two years! All drainage, foul, surface and french drains, as well as all other services, were laid in trenches that were nearly always full of ground water. That was thirty odd years ago, if I`d tried pumping every trench, I`d still be there today! Love watching your vids mate, that is some refurb project!

"Whenever it rains, water runs down the driveway gouging deep cuts..." - you said it! A French drain like this removes sub-surface water, not surface run-off, especially if you then plug the top of the trench by re-filling on top of the gravel with the excavated clay. You need to camber the road, put some angled cross drainage and a cement side flume. And you need to deal with the discharge end on the (public?) road, either with a ditch excavated along the upside to the next lowest drainage point, or preferably a culvert under the road to the downside. This is just going to pond water in the road sub-bed and destroy it. I won't even go into the issue of too thick a gravel layer below the pipe (which will, cause constant static saturation below the pipe), failure to line the ditch or top the gravel with fabric, to install clean-cut (stand pipes), or to cap the pipe ends. 10:1 your road will still wash out and you'll be digging the whole lot up in three years. Great carpentry and tiling though, which is what I came got. Keep it up!

You should line the trench with the correct type of geotextile, before putting the gravel in. This stops the gravel mixing with the silt and clay, which will clog it up in no time ! You should almost fill the trench, with the pipe in place, then fold the textile over the top with some more gravel on top just to hide it and protect it. This is the correct method, I'm afraid. What you did will work for a while I hope, but it's not a 'proper job' !!!

Sorry Carl but this was a lot of work for nothing. Your drain isn't connected to an outlet such as a surface water drain or culvert, it doesn't even discharge onto open land. All drains need to discharge somewhere. As your drive doesn't appear to slope towards the drain it isn't going to catch much water anyway. Your drive is constructed with what we term as unbound material, ie, loose hardcore and running water will always erode this type of surface. Try reshaping the drive so it falls towards the drain and maybe slow the flow with a couple of break-waters constructed with Kerbs with a slight upstand sloping towards the drain at an angle will help, but the water still has nowhere to go at the bottom? Somebody mentioned using a geo textile fleece such as Terram T1000, this is in my opinion is debatable as the fleece itself can clog with fines. Better still, one day, utilise the hardcore on the drive as a sub base for a bound surface ( tarmac, concrete, block paving, sets etc.) and you wont have the erosion issue. I hope you see this advice as constructive, you are a grafter and there's nowt wrong with that in my book. Btw, that oak gate you made was superb👍

Betty Swollocks
Betty Swollocks 3 yıl önce
@Mark Flajsner , I agree. In practice the geotex fleece is actually prone to clogging with fines that would have easily passed through the larger holes in a porous pipe... as I have found when inspecting geotex fleece in old land drains. However, I would always reccomend a layer of geotex directly on top of the drainage gravel if you intend covering with top soil and turf. It all depends on how you want your drain to function, there isn't a one fix approach.

Mate - lots of work going on there so good onya. Have to say though that the drainage system you built there is to deal with excess ground water. The problem (as I understand it) is that you have erosion of your drive surface from excess surface water run off. Your solution would work for a boggy drive. Not so much for run off. What you needed to do was create an open gutter or culvert on one side of the drive and camber your drive into it. If run off is still excessive you can create some ruts at a diagonal to feed water into the culvert. You will have some bumps. If you don’t want a cambered drive or ruts you can cut some channels diagonally across the drive at intervals feeding into the gutter. You can get grids to run over the channels so you can drive over them. They’ll need a clean out every so often but you won’t have to keep repairing your road surface. You’ll see this a gazillion miles of unsealed roads in Australia..... Anyway I hope I’m wrong and you don’t have any more problems.

I am amazed that even works at all. By back filling the trench with heavy clay soil on top, most of the surface run off won’t be penetrating down to the pipe. Should have filled to the top with pebbles. …and where the pipe terminates there will be a huge waterlogged patch flooding out over the road…which I’m surprised the local authority allowed., but I’m no drainage expert, so I guess if it works….
