I can agree and disagree with a bunch of what he says. I dug up the outside to waterproof the outside of the foundation, why wouldn't he just run a new pipe outside and call it done.
As far as going below the level of the footing, he makes it sound good but the old pipe was draining water that was getting within 4" of the slab now he will be draining water a little deeper,what about the water below that.
If you are pumping out X amount of water at one level and then you dig in deeper, how much water will you be pumping then, and to what benifet.
I have argued before about the drain being on the outside should always be first choice and with real good drainage down the wall so the mud dosn't push against the wall.
