This homeowner in Turner Valley, Alberta encountered issues with the basement flooding as a result of the exterior window wells routinely pooling with water and seepage where the wall and floor meet inside the home. This had caused the basement to be a wet and unwelcome place to be. 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 a WellDuct® Window Well Drains 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® 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 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 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. The discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a LawnScape™ Outlet. The LawnScape™ Outlet is a pipe buried from the downspout to a special LawnScape™ outlet that lets the water out onto the surface, while camouflaging the end of the pipe. The lid comes off for easy cleaning, minimizing maintenance for your home. To finish off the waterproofing system our Production Team had installed 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 WaterGuard® below. This homeowner can rest easy knowing that the correct waterproofing solution is in place.
