1) My original plan was to put the drain pipe in front of the footer however the footing is 7 inches below the slab and 131/2 inches wide. To me this is extraordinarily large and much bigger then what i expected. This will require a large amount of gravel. My question is can i put the pipe on top of the footing? This would leave me with 1 inch below to put gravel 1 inch on top then a thin 1 inch skim of concrete. Is this considered at all acceptable practice?
2) I cant find the dimpled plastic drain board to put up the wall and meet with the drain anywhere. Do any of you have a source on the web?
