Photo Album: Basement in Need of a Waterproofing Solution in Claresholm, AB
This homeowner in Claresholm, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the properties basement. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently 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 designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was then able to come to the home to install our patented 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 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. From there the system will discharge any water entering the sump pump basin to the exterior of the home passing through our patented IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged. This homeowner can now have their piece of mind back knowing that the correct waterproofing solution is in place!
Under the freshly poured cement you will find where the WaterGuard® has been installed.
