This homeowner in Northwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall. This water would pool in various areas around the basement floor. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement and get a permanent solution for their home, 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 then able to then come to the home to install our patented WaterGuard® drainage system around the perimeter of the basement. 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 new 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. 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. 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. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that the correct waterproofing system has been installed.
