Existing Sump Pump Needs Help
A sump pump is great for keeping water out of your basement. But if the water comes in at a different point and has no way to get to the pump, how useful is it really?
Attempting to Dry Out the Basement
The water was coming in by the kitchen cabinets, so our customer pulled back the carpet and was doing her best to keep everything dry - we often see fans set up in an attempt to dry out a basement.
Dehumidifier in Wet Basement
A dehumidifier is great to keep ambient moisture at bay and is more than most of our customers have before they call us. This will help prevent mold and wood rot until the waterproofing system is installed.
Wet Wood in Basement
This is the water entry point, as shown by it soaking through the wood trim under the cabinet.
Water Damage Behind Cabinet
With the cabinet removed, water damage is easier to see.
WaterGuard Installation in Progress
With the edge of the floor removed, we can install the WaterGuard system.
Tying WaterGuard into the Sump Pump
By tying the WaterGuard system into the sump pump, we can direct incoming water to it for discharge.
Drainage Stone Helps Water Filter
After the WaterGuard system is in place, we cover it with drainage stone to help water filter into the system. We installed an inspection port with this system for easy access at annual maintenance.
New Concrete Restores Floor
Once the WaterGuard is in place, we pour new concrete to restore the floor.
