The home's drainage system had to way of preventing ice build-up. To prevent further blockage, Randy installed an IceGuard modification to the home's outlet. IceGuard is a modification that attaches to the pipes of the home's sump pump. Without the mod ice can build up when the pump pushes water through the system, risking buildups and ruptures. IceGuard is a simple attachment that requires no energy to function year-round.
The home had an out-of-date sump pump that was not powerful enough to keep up with the water's demand. Randy decided to replace the sump pump with an Ayers trusted model called the TipleSafe sump pump. TripleSafe is a trusted sump pump at Ayers due to its three levels of security. The first level is a powerful motor that has a high water capacity. The second level of security is a reserve motor that activates if the water surpasses a certain level on the initial motor. The third level of security is a backup battery that only activates if the home losses power.
After major work was done, Randy wanted to ensure the home was protected from any water that might possibly manage to enter the home. To provide an extra barrier he installed a CleanSpace lining in the basement. CleanSpace is an antimicrobial lining that is placed on every flat surface of a home's crawl space. CleanSpace provides a protective barrier between the home's vulnerable material and any possible moisture inside the home. Moisture in the home is a danger because it can invite microorganisms that consume organic material like wood (wood found in the support works of a home). If too much wood is degraded then the home's support is compromised and a major risk factor.
The location of the home makes a high water yield inevitable. To ensure the sump pump does not get over worked Randy and his team installed a WaterGuard drainage system to control the flow of water. WaterGuard is a system of draining channels that are connected to the home's sump pump. The channels are installed under the foundational floor and covered with poured concrete, making it invisible to the naked eye. The channels lead to an outlet pipe that takes the water far away from the home's foundation, depositing the water in a safe location.
