Recently I interviewed three companies who have different ways of cutting a gradually sloping channel in my basement floor to install a plastic gutter like drainage system that would drain into a sump pump and pump the water out. This was the type that was NOT under the concrete, but INBEDDED inside the concrete.
This would cause the watter to flow efficiently. All three companies claimed that their particular plastic insert was patented. I am wondering if you know of a system that would be sold to the do-it-your-selfer?
Thank you for your time and consideration!

We offer do it yourself above floor basement waterproofing systems (as seen in The Family Handyman) that don't require you to dig outside or bust up the basement floor. http://waterproof.com/squidgee-dry-system.html
