FORM-A-DRAIN™ is the patented 3-in-1 foundation solution that forms footings, provides an integrated drainage system, and can be easily adapted to vent radon where needed. Designed for residential basement applications, Form-A-Drain consists of lineal sections installed as the foundation footing forms. Unlike standard wood forms, Form-A-Drain lineals stay in place permanently after completion of the concrete pour, enabling them to function as a foundation drainage system and — because they form a complete sub-slab perimeter loop around the foundation — a key element of a radon reduction system. And because it stays in place, Form-A-Drain shaves valuable time from the construction schedule; there’s no need to return the next day to remove, strip, clean and transport forms to the next jobsite.

CertainTeed diverts millions of pounds/year of PVC from landfills by recycling this material into our product formulation for Form-A-Drain. In addition to landfill waste reduction, the use of recycled PVC in our product reduces the release of CO2 from the extraction and processing of raw materials that are used to create virgin PVC.
The Form-A-Drain product reduces waste generated on the jobsite and saves time and money by eliminating the need to install, remove and dispose of conventional wood forms.
CertainTeed is committed to resource conservation. Our manufacturing facility in McPherson, Kansas has a comprehensive recycling program with a goal of zero waste disposed in a landfill, and we use a close loop process to recycle cooling water in the manufacturing process.
Indoor environmental quality is enhanced by Form-A-Drain and Platon since these products provide drainage and moisture control in the basement. Form-A-Drain is also an effective radon collection system.
