    DryTrak Solution in Cassopolis, Michigan

    As a baseboard drainage system, DryTrak® installs above the floor and along the inside perimeter of the basement.

    If you have a monolithic foundation, meaning that your floor and footing were poured as one piece, this is the only drainage system that's appropriate. DryTrak® is also perfect for other applications when jackhammering the floor is not an option-- in basements with radiant heat, for example.
