Corrugated Drain Terminates in Crawlspace


Recommended Posts

Any ideas? The other side of this foundation wall is below the garage slab. Certainly looks to me like the footing drain at the right side of the home (bottom of that slope) is draining into the crawlspace. A 4" core was drilled through the poured concrete foundation wall to allow that corrugated pipe through. But why? Seems like a lot of work to create a problem.

Rainwater needs to be diverted to the street.

Right, I agree. My question is, why would someone take the time to drill through an 8" concrete wall rather than simply routing the piping around the foundation to daylight? Order of operations got wacky and backfilling had already happened?

If the downspout's rain drain were connected to the pipe in the crawlspace, you'd see extensive signs of water just below the end of that pipe. 

I think someone was trying to drain water out from below the garage slab.
