    Question french drain help

    My contractor is putting in my french drain but the pipe does not have holes on the bottom, only on the top and the sides.. Is it correct? Will that be effective in carrying water away or should I have him redo the pipe? thanks

    The perferations should be on the bottom sides of the pipe not the bottom or top, normally the labeling on the pipe will be face up.
