Drain tile and stepped footings
Our house will have a walkout basement and in the design diagrams the architect has placed the exterior drain tile at the same level as the footings even where the step footings are located. At a couple of locations this places the exterior drain tile close to 5 feet beneath the slab. Does this make any sense?
Is there a reason to place the exterior drain tile any deeper than the interior drain tile depth at the step footing locations? I have a slope to my building site but I would have to run the drain tile out a few hundred feet from the house to reach day light for a 5 foot deep drain tile.
