Thank you Pataya, do not let the picture fool you this is a 10 foot high basement wall, way below frost after backfill. The crushed stone would defeat having the two separate ways to drain as the water would cross over, we pour footers right on the compacted earth, my plant though on slab also has footers and poured walls that are 42 inches as well for frost. The PVC drain form has saw cut slots on the outsides for draining and yes it does simplify the process some, check out this YouTube video, they also talk about how this system can be used for Radon mitigation too. have a good day, I am getting married at 4:00 so will be out of pocket today : )

All footings should be poured on terra firma (undisturbed soil) regardless of region unless it is engineered fill. Forma - drain pretty standard here. Good stuff. On the other hand some things are pretty regional - we use directional boring here a lot but I wouldn't try it most places in Missouri or Arkansas.
