Need A Channel Drain Spec


We are looking to add a channel drain to an existing garage floor. The garage is 46 wide and 40 deep. We would like to cut the existing concrete about 6 in from the garage doors and run the drain left to right across the garage. It will drain through the foundation on the right out to daylight.

The current garage slab has a slope from back to front of approx. 1/8 per foot. It is damn near perfectly level left to right.

Access to the house is a quarter mile dirt road. The homeowner would like for snow/ice melt off the vehicles and/or the ability to hose the floor off into the drain.

Any suggestions for channel drain to use?

Are you planning to patch the slab? Or to cut just enough?

I really like the Aco Drain. You can get a variety of grates, it has an internal slope so you can set the top level and it will drain perfectly.

+1 For ACO Trench drain.
Google it, they have quite a variety of shapes, depths, grate covers, etc., as well as detailed installation drawings. They also make a curved shovel that fits the profile of trench for cleaning it out, not a bad idea to have one.
