* Thanks for taking a minute to check out the time study we did recently to compare
a 50’french drain installation using our EZ Drain gravel free French drain product
versus a traditional gravel French drain * Off to my left here, you can see the two
drainage solutions next to each other. The video is going to show product delivery, installation
and clean up after the trench has been dug. Let’s get started.
Fade to Video * Chapter 1: Getting Started (VO)
The first you need to do is to dig a 50′ trench. For the time study, we assumed that
both 50′ trenches took the same amount of time
* Chapter 2: Delivering the product & prepping the trench
Next, the gravel had to be ordered and delivered via truck and dumped in front of the home.
The EZ Drain product, on the other hand, was picked up at the local home center store and
did not require delivery. One thing to note for planning purposes is that 1 cubic yard
of gravel equals the same as 30 feet of EZ Drain in a 12″x12″ trench.
* Chapter 3: Filling the trench Now that the trenches have been dug, EZ Drain
is installed in our first trench and fabric is being pinned[RL1] in the second trench
as the first step of a gravel French drain system. (Chris: Start split screen)
* You can see the EZ Drain product is lightweight and easy to transport to the trench. Gravel,
on the other hand, needs to be shoveled into the wheelbarrow and then delivered to the
trench. Gravel also leaves a trail around the trench that needs to be cleaned up afterward
to prevent catching and damaging your lawn mower.
* At the 7 minute mark, you can see that EZ Drain has already been assembled and put into
the trench — you are ready to backfill soil and add the sod.
* (Show EZ Drain being completed at the 30 minute mark — keep on screen for duration
of GRAVEL installation[RL2]) * The gravel installation is still being worked
on as the filter fabric needed to be pinned to the sides of the trench, then gravel loaded
into the trench, followed by installation of the corrugated pipe and then covered with
more gravel before finally backfilling with soil and topping with sod.
* (Closing shot — Ryan holding stop watch on gravel installation side of split screen)
* On Camera: Fade to Actor with music * So there you have it….Once the trench
was dug, EZ Drain was installed in 30 minutes including back filling soil and replacing
sod. The traditional French drain took 1 hour and 9 minutes — that’s half the time!
* So which would you rather do? [thumb over to pile of gravel next to EZ Drain from frame
