These homeowners in Red Deer, Alberta encountered issues with their drainage system in their basement's stairway not being able to keep up with the current amount of water coming in, causing water to pool instead of draining. Wanting to eliminate the water issues and get 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 on upgrading their drainage system to the TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage Pipe System. The TrenchDrain™ resembles half of a basement drainage pipe, with a grated opening fitted snugly on top. The grate is flush or slightly below the floor, eliminating any tripping hazard. It is uniquely designed to span doorways, hatchway entrances, and similar entryway doors. Any water passing over the drain is collected through the openings and redirected to the newly installed 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, 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 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.
