This homeowner in NW Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water seepage in various spots within a section of their basement, damaging the drywall, insulation and carpet in place. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently with a proven solution, they contacted the basement waterproofing contractors 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 designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our patented the CactusBoard basement footing foundation wall drain system. Forming a space between the edge of the basement floor and the basement wall, and across the footing, allowing water from the perimeter and the walls to drain into the stone aggregate under the floor slab and then into 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 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.
