How does a customized drain pipe system for thick or monolithic concrete floors work?

There’s no getting around it: thick, monolithic concrete floors do represent a bit of a challenge for drainage installation. The truth is that when it comes to setting up a basement waterproofing system for a monolithic foundation, not just any drain pipe system will work.

Most often, the foundation of a home is built in three pieces

  • The floor
  • The walls
  • The foundation footing

However, for monolithic floors, there are just two pieces – the floor and footing are actually constructed as a single piece.

Consequently, these floors have very thick edges, making jackhammering them a difficult, intensive task that also generates a substantial amount of dust.


The Pros of a Mission Home Services DryTrak Installation

  • There is no jackhammering during installation
  • The system collects water from the floor joint and the walls
  • The system is above the mud zone, which prevents clogging
  • Like many of our systems, it includes a written lifetime warranty

With our DryTrak® Drain Pipe System, baseboard drains are permanently epoxied above the mud that sits below the floor, without any jackhammering required.

Draining water trapped in block walls

If you have a block wall foundation, then there is a second challenge to deal with. The open cavities in each block are susceptible to filling with water — which then seeps in through the walls.

We eliminate this water source by drilling a “weep hole” in each block. The water then pours through these holes and directly into the drain pipe.

The drain pipe is epoxied directly to the floor, and we leave a slight opening along the top to collect water leaking in from the walls. Thus, your home is waterproofed without jackhammering!

We install warrantied drain pipe systems in Maryland

Monolithic foundations shouldn’t be more vulnerable to leaks – and they should be compatible with french drains. That’s why we use the DryTrak® Drain Pipe System – to provide you with a simple, common-sense solution that helps you to avoid what would otherwise have been a messy and long installation.

“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”

Gail B. | ★★★★★

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
