Water in the Basement
The water was getting into the homeowners house through the cracks between the slabs on the basement floor.
This picture shows how much water was actually getting into the basement and pooling on the basement floor.
Pooling Water Part 2
This is another picture showing how much water was pooling in the homeowners basement.
This picture shows the WaterGuard system being put along the perimeter of the basement. A shallow trench is dug for the product to sit in. The system works by capturing water seepage from the floors and walls and sending it straight to the sump pump to be removed from the home.
After the WaterGuard system is all in place drainage stone is put in to facilitate water flow into the system and prevent the system from getting clogged.
The team also installed cross tile. The process is started by creating a shallow trench along the middle of the basement floor. The cross tile pvc is then put in place.
Drainage Stones Part 2
Drainage stone is put on top of the cross tile in order to facilitate water flow much like the WaterGuard system. After the drainage stone is put in and leveled a new layer of concrete is put over the systems so the basement looks clean and new!
Both Systems Lead to the Sump Pump
This picture shows that the WaterGuard system and the Cross Tile system both lead to the sump pump so the water can be removed from the home.
Lastly, the TripleSafe sump pump was installed in the basement. The TripleSafe has three sump pumps in one. The first pump removes water effectively from the home. The second pump has a seperate discharge line and is more powerful and is there for you on the rare ocassion that you need it. The third pump is equipped with batteries and is there for you if the power goes out!
