More Drain Tile

Wow, what a project. Heavy, dusty and messy and one day without hot water. The concrete guy was impressed with the original slab. The underside of it was very smooth and black, so they probably put some kind of tar sheets under to create a vapor barrier.

The blue line is for the old drain tile and the yellow for the new.

Cutting the slab.

Drain tile installed with new gravel on top. Interesting paint job from the 70's.

Gravel and dirt that he and his team dug up were dumped into the crawl space to even out the bottom.   They installed drain tile, connected it to the old one and put gravel and some plastic for vapor barrier on top.

The next day the concrete truck was here.

Now, we are just waiting for the spring snow to melt to test the new drainage system.
