The TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage Pipe System

Many homeowners have contacted us with concerns about water flowing into their home through hatchway entrances, down stairways, or through garage doors. When we encounter this kind of situation, we usually recommend our TrenchDrain Drainage Pipe System.

TrenchDrain resembles half of a basement drainage pipe, with a grated opening fitted snugly on top. The grate is flush or slightly below the floor, eliminating any tripping hazard. It is uniquely designed to span doorways, hatchway entrances, and similar entryway doors. Any water passing over the drain is collected through the openings and redirected to your sump pump.

Our French drain systems can solve any basement flooding issue -- no matter what challenges you're facing!

Our TrenchDrain System has a removable lid that can be taken off to remove leaves, dirt, or debris that could clog your system.

This drain can also be fitted with a ball-and-cup drain -- making it compatible with an existing radon mitigation system.

Stop Flooding Through Garage Doors

Many of our customers have the TrenchDrain System installed along the opening to their garage door. In this application, the drain will intercept the water and direct it to your sump pump system.

We always recommend installing the drain along the inside of the garage, where it's much less likely to freeze during the winter months.

Installing our drain along the inside of the door will also protect the system from clogging with outside debris, such as dirt, sand, sticks, and leaves.

When Draining Hatchway Doors...

When installing this system on hatchway doors, we will generally recommend installing them inside the hatchway entrance (instead of in the basement itself) when possible.

Since the TrenchDrain Drainage Pipe System includes a grated opening, separating the drain from the basement as much as possible will keep to keep humidity out of your basement space.

Install Our warrantied Drainage Pipe System In Your Home!

Including a section of TrenchDrain in your full-perimeter drainage pipe system does not add any additional cost to the completed waterproofing system. Even if your hatchway isn't leaking now, we recommend installing this system just in case.
