Basement waterproofing expertsWork Smarter Not Harder Footer System

The Drain Main Basement System was engineered and patented by Ken Cotten, WATERPROOF.COM founder, after decades of hands-on experience in the basement waterproofing installation business. Ken designed the Drain Main Basement System for waterproofing contractors seeking a subfloor system without the back-breaking work of drain tile.

Ken designed a basement system that would collect the water coming in from where the wall sat on the footer without losing or dumping water under the concrete slab. Ken engineered a waterproofing system that tapped into the main source of a wet basement and trapped it into the main channel by adding flexible PVC fins on the bottom of the channel, which reduced water from escaping under the system. This new system design also combined attributes of an above floor system that would collect water from the face of the basement walls and direct it into the Drain Main channel. The end result was the rugged footer drain known as the Drain Main Basement System, which requires far less concrete removal and no trenching under the floor.
