      We recently purchased a 25 yr old house and it has a 2″ gap between the basement floor and the foundation block wall. What is this for? Previous owner drilled holes in the wall and built a wooden encasement around this 2″ gap. This leads to the sump pit.
      No rock or pipe in 2″ gap just dirt. Is this a proper installation of french drain?

      Water-Barrier is a dry basement in a box. There is NO need to dig around your home! Water-Barrier is a
      vinyl baseboard system that captures the water at the entry point, where the wall meets the floor. The
      baseboard measures 4½ inches high, 5 foot lengths. The baseboard is permanently sealed to the floor.
      The water is then channeled to either a floor drain or a sump pump. The result is a very dry floor!
      Water-Barrier works with block, poured, stone or brick walls. It can be installed in paneled or carpeted
      basements.
