    I'm building a wall for a customer with a walkway above it and he's pushing me to install a weeping tile. Is it required for a wall like I'm building? Where should I have it exit?

    I would put drainage in just as a cheap insurance. Sewer drain runs like 85cents a foot.
    Remember holes down , not up. put your clear drainage stone in and exit it out the lower end.

    What would you use to exit it out?

    Depending on the look we need or the block we are using we either use a core drill and drill for a 4" round grate or use a 6" square grate with 6" thick block and block up to the grate. The 4" S&D or 4" corregated pipe fits into these grates. NDS is the supplier we most often use. For the square grates you can get them with Black, White, Green or metal grates.
