    Default Footings - Sloping Block What kind of Ag Drainage is required

    Guys,

    Sorry Mod I think if this is in the wrong part of the forum please move but thought to see if anyone else on here has done this with their footings first.....

    Couldn't find any link on the forum so I thought to start a new thread. I need to do some drainage along the Footings of a house that is on a Sloping Block then run it into some kind of pit on both ends to have full access in case it get blocked plus one end will meet the storm water outlet into the street.

    AG drain will be roughly about 20 to 25 meters long.

    Can someone point me in the right direction and the kind of materails that should be used. What type of AG pipe should I be installing, Type of Gravel to be used and any other materail including waterproofing Brick wall footings.

    Would I first need to membrane the wall and have a drain againest the wall something like this http://www.maccaferri.com.au/webfile...gnersGuide.pdf

    Do I also need to bed the walls of the trench with Geofabric as well.

    Should I be using Scoria or Blue Metal, plumbers and landscaping people are saying Scoria but Engineerers are saying to me best to use Blue Metal.

    Any thoughts......

    Plus any good website to see how this stuff is installed.......A pictures says a thousand words...so please link any images if someone has got this in prgress or maybe already done....
