This homeowner in Didsbury, Alberta encountered issues with water seeping into their basement through their cinder block foundation. Wanting to eliminate the water issues with a permanent solution, and regain their valuable basement space, 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 designed specifically to address all of the homeowner's concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install a ThermalDry® Radiant Wall System which protects the basement from moisture and water that passes through concrete foundation walls. This product serves as both a vapor barrier and also as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls into 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 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. To remove any excess moisture within the air now and in the future the homeowner had our NEW SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier installed. The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier can eliminate 95 pints of water per day and move over 300 cubic feet of dry air per minute. The System has a "MERV 8" Air carbon filter designed to remove mold spores, dust, dust mite droppings and a range of other allergens from the air in your home so you can live worry free.
This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that they have regained their valuable basement space.
