Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Window Well and Basement Drainage System in SW Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in SW Calgary, Alberta encounters issues with basement flooding as a result of the exterior window wells routinely pooling with water, as well as seepage entering the home where the wall and floor meet inside the basement. Wanting to protect their home investment and eliminate the issues with a permanent solution, they contacted the basement waterproofing and foundation 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. Our Production Team was able to then come to the home to install three WellDuct® Window Well Drains designed specifically to prevent basement flooding due to window well leakage. The low profile WellDuct® system channels excess water from the exterior window well 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 TripleSafe™sump pump system which handily replaces the two failing sump pumps. Our most reliable 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. During the initial inspection a leaking foundation crack was also noted which was repaired using our FlexiSpan® foundation crack repair system which also ties directly into the WaterGuard® system.
