There are many people that confuse trench drains with French Drains. On one hand, Trench Drains have grates instead of the rocks as cover. On the other hand, French Drains are hidden and buried underneath rocks.

A Trench Drain is a specific type of floor drain containing a trough or channel shaped body. Trench Drains have grates to filter large objects from further falling and blocking the water.

The purpose of a trench drain is to control surface water. Trench Drains divert away the excess water from the surface. A Trench Drain installation accumulates and redirects surface water from patios, driveways, and exterior concrete slabs.
