Why Form-A-Drain® Plus

  • Drainage system parallel to footing below foundation walls relieves hydrostatic pressure on walls and slabs, reducing risk of cracking.
  • Greater water intake capacity ensures rapid collection of ground water and minimizes possibility of basement water infiltration.
  • Strong, rigid PVC construction minimizes possibility of system failure due to a collapsed or crushed drainage system.
  • Level installation ensures uniform drainage of foundation and makes it easier to set wallforms and masonry blocks. 

Form-A-Drain Plus is the 3-in-1 foundation solution that forms footings, provides an integrated drainage system and can be easily adapted to vent radon where needed.

Designed for basement applications, Form-A-Drain Plus consists of lineal sections installed as the foundation footing forms. Unlike standard wood forms, Form-A-Drain Plus lineals stay in place permanently after completion of the concrete pour and because they form a complete sub-slab perimeter loop around the foundation, Form-A-Drain Plus functions as a foundation drainage and a radon collection system as well. Since it stays in place, Form-A-Drain Plus also shaves valuable time from the construction schedule; there’s no need for a crew to return the next day to remove, strip, clean and transport forms to the next jobsite.

Permanent & precise footing forms

Designed for installation before basement construction begins, Form-A-Drain Plus consists of lineal sections installed as the foundation footing forms. Unlike standard wood forms, Form-A-Drain Plus lineals stay in place permanently after completion of the concrete pour and form a complete sub-slab perimeter loop around the foundation.

Since it stays in place, Form-A-Drain Plus also shaves valuable time from the construction schedule; there’s no need for a crew to return the next day to remove, strip, clean and transport forms to the next jobsite.

Radon reduction

Because Form-A-Drain Plus stays in place after the footing is poured, it’s in the perfect position to perform as part of a radon reduction system. Simply add a single outlet to one of the inner Form-A-Drain Plus lineals and connect it to dedicated vent pipe, as described in the Form-A-Drain installation guide.
