Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Window Well Flooding in SW Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta had noticed that their window well wasn't draining water properly and would flood every time there was a heavy rainfall. Looking for the best solution this homeowner contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.

In order to correctly assess the situation we sent out a System Design Specialist. The System Design Specialist provided this homeowner with a FREE, no obligation quote designed to alleviate this problem. Once the project was planned out our Production Team was able to then come to the home to install a WellDuct® Window Well Drain to prevent basement flooding due to window well leakage. The low profile WellDuct® system channels excess water from the exterior window well, down and into our patented WaterGuard® drainage system. The WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System is designed with a built-in wall flange, capturing any water leaking from the walls 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. 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. Finally the discharge line has been installed above ground, ending off with a the LawnScape™ Outlet. The LawnScape™ Outlet is a pipe buried from the downspout to a special LawnScape™ outlet that lets the water out onto the surface while camouflaging the end of the pipe. The lid comes off for easy cleaning, minimizing maintenance for your home.

This homeowner seemed to be ecstatic about the solution we have provided for them. They can now move on worry free knowing that their home is protected by our waterproofing system.
