Installing weeping tile INSIDE of a basement foundation-can it be done?

Hello I have an older house which does not have weeping tile installed. It has extensive landscaping around the house along with a deck so exterior trenching is not a viable option. can a person bust up the cement close to the foundation inside the unfinished basement and install weeping tile against the foundation. Has anyone done this or know of other any other options other than this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks Mike

Yes, I've seen it done when used with a sump pump. Suggest you do a search for other options, too...

I attended an (9/04) nspe.org seminar on waterproofing where they talked about "French Drains". They cut the floor inside the house along the outside wall and install gravel and a pipe. Inside the house so it doesn't freeze. They mentioned cases where the water from underneath actually lifts the floor. It was presented by bocciabros.com, said to be the best waterproof engineers on the East Coast.

We have an 8 foot concrete wall basement almost totally in the ground. Our main floor is about 12 to 18 inches above grade. FWIW: With the same idea in mind. When be built this single storey house 35 years ago we put weeping tile outside the footings and also inside and a lot of gravel inside before putting down the concrete basement floor. From the point of view of getting groundwater to run to the location of a sump-drain-pump and not build up behind the walls anywhere it seems to have worked.
