Photo Album: Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Lethbridge, AB
This homeowner in Lethbridge, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the perimeter of their basement as well as the basement window. 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 a DMX air-gap membrane wall system which bridges cracks and drains away moisture to our patented WaterGuard® drainage system below. A WellDuct® Window Well Drain was also included to help eliminate the window well flooding. The low profile WellDuct® system channels excess water from the exterior window wells down into the WaterGuard®. This 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 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.
