Here is a view of the Sump System that needed to be replaced. This system couldn't keep up with the amount of water that was entering their home.
This is a view of the newly installed TripleSafe™ sump pump system to replace the homeowner's existing sump system. There are 3 sump pumps that make up the entirety of the system. One of the sump pumps is connected to a battery, just in case the power was to ever go out.
Within this photo you can see the CleanSpace® (White material covering the wall) and WaterGuard® System (Below the CleanSpace®, cemented in place). These two products work together in order to protect this basement. Any water coming in from the walls will run down the CleanSpace® and into the WaterGuard® below. Once in the WaterGuard®, the water travels down toward the installed sump system.
This sump pump system wouldn't be complete if it didn't have an IceGuard® system. The IceGuard® (Grated, Cone shaped device) allows water to continue to flow even if the discharge line was clogged or frozen. This especially helps during the cold, cold days of winter in Alberta!
This homeowner of Southwest Calgary, Alberta had experienced problems with excess water entering their basement. This was starting to become a large problem. The constant dampness was causing the space to become incredibly unwelcome. Looking for a permanent solution, this homeowner contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
Once contacted, we were able to send out a System Design Specialist in which they were able to assess the situation and provide the homeowner 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 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® 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 TripleSafe™sump pump system. 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 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.
This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home has the protection of Doug Lacey's Basement Systems on their side.
