This homeowner in Southeast Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with basement flooding as a result of the exterior window wells routinely pooling with water and seepage where the wall and floor meet inside the home. Wanting to protect their home investment and eliminate the issues with a permanent solution, 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 specific to address their concerns. Our Production Team was able to then come to the home to install a WellDuct® Window Well Drain designed to prevent basement flooding due to window well leakage. The low profile WellDuct® system channels excess water from the exterior window well down into our patented WaterGuard® drainage system installed below. 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. 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 so there is no interference with lawn maintenance. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home is protected from excess water.
