Michigan Communities using Great Lakes Drain System™

Great Lakes Drain System™ is Nationally Approved

Although Great Lakes Drain System™ is already Nationally Approved, we have welcomed the opportunity to review the product, patent and concept behind the design and function of the system.

Since we are a Michigan based company we have been very deliberate about only introducing Great Lakes Drain System™ and its benefits to the foundation contractors in southeast Michigan.  And as of today we have no reported field failures!

We look forward to introducing Great Lakes Drain System™ to the Great Lake States and other areas as the product interest and demand continues to increase. Thanks again for visiting our site!
