A French drain, invented by a Concord, Massachusetts farmer named Henry French, is a technique of discharging water from low lying areas to prevent it from penetrating into building foundations.  Without the proper drainage system, there can be significant water damage to the structure of the building, which can eventually cause the building to falter or even collapse.

A French drain, which is also known as weeping tile or drain tile, is one of the many types of drains that can be installed underneath a building.  A French drain can also be used to distribute a septic drain field or installed behind retaining walls to discharge groundwater pressure.
