Foundations / Form-A-Drain

Form-A-Drain foundation drainage system Installed by Cobra Concrete

One of the most important features of your new house is what's buried underneath it

FORM-A-DRAIN™ is the patented 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 residential basement applications, Form-A-Drain consists of lineal sections installed as the foundation footing forms. Unlike standard wood forms, Form-A-Drain lineals stay in place permanently after completion of the concrete pour, enabling them to function as a foundation drainage system and — because they form a complete sub-slab perimeter loop around the foundation — a key element of a radon reduction system. And because it stays in place, Form-A-Drain shaves valuable time from the construction schedule; there’s no need to return the next day to remove, strip, clean and transport forms to the next jobsite.

Form-A-Drain offers you three key benefits:
• A better way to build the foundation
• A drainage system that’s integrated directly into the foundation
• Easy adaptation for radon evacuation

Although you don’t see it, the system at the very base of your home that provides drainage to your foundation plays a critical role in keeping your basement or crawlspace dry. CertainTeed Form-A-Drain is the highest quality, most innovative foundation drainage system on the market today.

Green Facts
Form-A-Drain lineals are manufactured from 100% pre- recycled PVC, including common post-consumer containers such as shampoo bottles. The overall pre- and post-consumer recycled content of Form-A-Drain system components is 92%.
CertainTeed diverts millions of pounds/year of PVC from landfills by recycling this material into our product formulation for Form-A-Drain

In addition to landfill waste reduction, the use of recycled PVC in our product reduces the release of CO2 from the extraction and processing of raw materials that are used to create virgin PVC.
