Water Damage on Basement Walls
In addition to coming up through the floor, it's clear that water has been coming in through the walls - note the staining.
Flooded Williamston Basement
This basement flooded every time it rained - even though it isn't finished, the water was still a hazard and inconvenience.
Flooded Basement Eliminates Storage Space
Even a basement that isn't being used as living space has function as storage, but that isn't possible if it's constantly flooding.
Water Damages Appliances in Basement
In addition to making it difficult to store items in the basement, standing water can damage fixtures like the water heater or HVAC system.
Standing Water Creates Hazards
In addition to damaging fixtures, it isn't safe for them to constantly be sitting in water. Electrical appliances can be hazardous when wet.
Omnipresent Shop Vac is Doing Its Best
Ah, the shop vac, defender of wet basements everywhere. It isn't a long term solution, and think of the time you waste vacuuming up water every time it rains.
Removing the Floor for WaterGuard
In order to install a below-floor drain system, we need to get...below the floor. This involves jackhammering out a perimeter that we'll pour new concrete over after the system is installed.
WaterGuard Installation in Progress
Here, the WaterGuard is installed around appliances to ensure full perimeter coverage without interference.
Leveling TrenchDrain for Installation
Here, a crew member makes sure the TrenchDrain system is level before securing it. TrenchDrain is installed in high-water areas like doorways to expedite drainage. It's tied into the WaterGuard so water goes right to the sump pump.
After the system is in place, we secure the WaterGuard before pouring new concrete.
Tying WaterGuard into the Sump Pump
The WaterGuard system is tied right into the new TripleSafe sump pump to make sure all the water gets to the pump and is discharged outside.
Once the new concrete is poured, the TrenchDrain sits flush with the floor.
Inspection Ports Allow Easy Access
WaterGuard inspection ports allow us to access the system for annual maintenance or in the event of any concerns.
