The most effective of possible interior drainage systems is a perforated drain pipe wrapped in soil-separating fabric and installed inside the perimeter of the footing.
This requires removing and replacing concrete at the slab edge. By placing the drain pipe beneath the slab, it drains the water table to a lower level and can be pitched towards the sump basin for increased flow. Similar to an exterior system, the drainage pipe connects to a sump pump. The sump basin should have an airtight, childproof cover. Holes must be drilled at the base of every block core to permit drainage. A critical component of this approach is the dimpled plastic diverter placed at the base of the wall and beneath the slab edge that permits free drainage of the wall into the drain pipe. This method is less expensive and much more effective than many specialized drainage channel systems.
