Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to remove the existing sump system and install our TripleSafe™ sump pump system. Our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe™ provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery! In addition to the new sump system this homeowner had asked us to install an entire waterproofing system. From there our Production Team had installed the ThermalDry® Radiant Wall System which protects the basement from moisture and water that passes through concrete foundation walls. This product serves as both a vapor barrier and also as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls into the patented WaterGuard® drainage system below. The WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System is designed with a built-in wall flange, which extends up your basement wall by 3/8", capturing any water leaking from the walls will move downward and behind this flange where it is then directed to the aforementioned TripleSafe™.

    Leaky Basement Repair in Lethbridge, AB

    A homeowner in Lethbridge, AB had been dealing with seepage along part of the east wall in the basement and front wall for years and is finally ready to fix it. Wanting to upgrade their sump pump and basin so that the area is sealed off and working properly to prevent these water issues. Our System Design Specialist who attended the home gave the homeowner a FREE, no obligation quote to resolve these issues.

    The homeowner was excited, so she went ahead with the proposal and our production crews were arranged to go out and get to work!

    SuperSump® sump pump system and new basin were installed to replace the existing material that had been failing for many years. The system will discharge any water to the exterior of the home. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top-rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump, which is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. A side discharge was installed instead. A side discharge is a really great option when the sump pump is to be located in a finished space in the basement. Similar to a top discharge the hole for sump is jackhammered and the basin is installed flush with the floor.  The difference with a side discharge is the plumbing off the pump is directed out the side of the basin below the lid.  We then install a solid lid that sits flush with the concrete floor.  The discharge line can then be run to the exterior wall and up the wall before being cored through to the exterior of the home.

    The home owner can then finish with stud framing and drywall and conceal the discharge line. Carpet or other flooring material can be laid over top of the solid sump lid so long as access remains for future maintenance on the sump system.
