Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing System Installed to Prevent Flooding Within this Homeowner's Basement in SW Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through the foundation walls around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall as well as the cold joint where the wall and floor meet. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement and get a permanent solution for their home, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.

A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home to assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was able to then come to the home and 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 as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls into the patented WaterGuard® drainage system 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. The water will then 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 which is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. 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. Finally, the discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot that is installed flush with the grass, allowing the homeowner to maintain their lawn without hindrance.  

This homeowner can rest easily knowing they have the best sump pump system available in place.
