Photo Album: Perimeter Drainage and Sump Pump System in Drumheller, AB
These homeowner's in Drumheller, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in at various areas around their basement through wall cracks, as where the floor slab meets the foundation walls. Wanting to eliminate the water issues with a permanent solution, and regain their valuable basement space, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our patented CleanSpace® vapor barrier wall system which is a 100% waterproof plastic. With a 25 year warranty for wear and tear, it's durable, washable, and has anti-microbial protection called UltraFresh built right in! The wall vapor barrier ties into the WaterGuard® drainage system around the perimeter of the basement. 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 new TripleSafe™ sump pump system which handily replaces the two failing sump pumps. 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® ⅓ 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!
