This photo depicts the process in which the Production Team go through when installing WaterGuard® and CleanSpace®.
This photo shows that the void in which the TripleSafe™ is placed is indeed filled with gravel and then cemented over.
Within this photo you can see that the WaterGuard® had been cemented over, thereby locking it in place and creating a level basement floor.
The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump isn't cemented totally over, it is cemented so that the lid is flush with the basement floor. This is done for a couple reasons; 1. If there is a flood in the basement the water will be able to run in from the top of the sump lid, and 2. To make it easier for the Service Team to access and maintain the system.
This homeowner in Northwest Calgary, 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 them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address their concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install a CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. It has a 25 year warranty for wear and tear, it's durable, washable, and has anti-microbial protection called UltraFresh built right in! The wall vapor barrier ties into our patented WaterGuard® drainage system. 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 TripleSafe™ 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. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that the correct solution to their situation had been put in place.
