This homeowner in Northwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks near their window well. 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 able to then come to the home to install 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 well down and behind the installed CleanSpace® vapor barrier. The CleanSpace® vapor barrier is installed along the walls of the basement and is made of a 100% waterproof plastic. 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 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. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump is tied into the system, set at the highest level the UltraSump® will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery! 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. And finally the discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot away from the home installed flush with the grass on the lawn so you can mow right over it. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing their water problems are finally in the past.
