This homeowner in Northwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently in the basement and regain the usable space, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to 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 able to then come to the home and install CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. With 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 the 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—it 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, 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. Once the cement dries, the new system is in place. The homeowners can rest easily knowing they have the best solution in place and can get back to utilizing the valuable basement space!
