Shown here is the Egress window well that was installed. Inside of it there is a WellDuct Collector drain to ensure flooding doesn't occur in the window well.
The reflective material is the ThermalDry® Radiant Wall System and the grey, rectangular object is the WellDuct® Track. Where the wall meets the basement floor is where the WaterGuard® is installed.
In order to ensure that the ThermalDry® Radiant Wall System and WellDuct® Track are redirecting the excess water properly the system needs to be completely sealed.
This picture shows the WaterGuard® in place before it is cemented over.
A brand new SuperSump® sump pump system is installed to ensure any excess water efficiently exits the home.
The excess water that is collected by the SuperSump® sump pump system exits through this fitting. This fitting ensures that the water will always exit even if the discharge line is clogged or frozen.
This homeowner in Northwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through the foundation walls around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall as well as making the basement cold. 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 specifically 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 Production Team had also installed a WellDuct® Window Well Drain designed to prevent basement flooding due to window well leakage. The low profile WellDuct® system channels excess water from the exterior window wells down into the WaterGuard®. 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.
