Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing Solutions in Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in Calgary, Alberta encounted issues with basement flooding as a result of the exterior window wells routinely pooling with water, as well water seepage where the wall and floor meet inside the home ruining the insulation and drywall in the previously finished basement. Wanting to protect their home investment and eliminate the issues with a permanent solution, 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 able to then come to the home to install 2 WellDuct® Window Well Drains designed to prevent basement flooding due to window well leakage. The low profile WellDuct® system, along with the additional DMX Wall Wrap on the basement perimeter, channels excess water from the exterior window wells down into the WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System. Designed with a built-in wall flange which extends up your basement wall by 3/8", any water leaking from the walls will move downward and behind this flange where it is then directed to the TripleSafe™sump pump system. 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. From there the system will discharge any water entering the sump pump 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.
