Photo Album: Drumheller, AB Basement Waterproofing
This homeowner in Drumheller, Alberta encounters issues with water leaking in through the foundation walls around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall as well as the cold joint where the wall and floor meet. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement and get a permanent solution for their long-time family home, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home 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 a 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 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!
