This homeowner in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta encountered issues with a failing sump system that couldn't keep up with the water that was entering their basement through foundation cracks. They had also encountered issues with mold and dampness within their crawlspace. 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 specific to address their concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install a CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. 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 replacement sump system, the TripleSafe™ 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.
To address the mold and dampness within the homeowner's crawlspace our Production Team was able to come to the home to install our CleanSpace® crawl space vapor barrier encapsulation to prevent moisture from passing through the floors. This durable liner will allow for servicemen to use the space without damage while transforming the crawl space into usable storage space.
