This homeowner in Oyen, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in around the perimeter of the basement, as well as experiencing high levels of humidity. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently in the basement and regain the usable space, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our patented WaterGuard® drainage system. 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 SuperSump® sump pump system. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top-rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. To reduce the high levels of humidity, our SaniDry™ XP Basement Air System was also added to this system design.
