going around water heater

When installing French drains, and you have a water heater in the way, the customer could remove it temporarily or we can go around it. Here are two examples of going around the heater. On the left is one way of doing it. On the right, is how Arid goes around the water heater, nice and neat. We leave the 1" gap around it so that if water seeps in behind the water heater, it'll trickle into our gap without spilling into the rest of the basement. In addition, if the water heater ever leaks, that too, will drain into our gap and prevent a flood in your basement.
