Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Homeowner with a Damp Basement in Need of a Waterproofing System in NW Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in Northwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the property's basement. 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 specifically to address their concerns. Our Production Team was able to then come to the home to install a 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. 

To remove any excess moisture within the basement the homeowners had opted in to installing the energy efficient new SaniDry™ Sedona dehumidifierThe Sedona installs with a powerful blowing motor that circulates dry air throughout the space, aggressively drying out the basement with the possibility of removing 95 pints of water per day!. The collected water can be drained into a sump pump pit, a section of your perimeter drain, or away via a condensate pump. The Sedona is fitted with a MERV 8 Air Filter infused with carbon to remove mold spores, dust, dust mite droppings and a range of other allergens from the air in your home. Finally the Sedona comes with a Five Year Warranty on parts and labor.

This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that the correct solution to their situation had been put in place.
