Here is a view of the Collector Drain that prevents the Window Well from flooding. This method allows our system to control where the excess water goes instead of it leaking into the basement from random areas the home.
A view of the WellDuct® Track. The Track directs excess water that is collected from the Collector Drain and guides it down towards the WaterGuard® below.
The WaterGuard® is installed and guides the excess water towards the installed sump system. In this case the SuperSump® sump pump system.
Here is the heart of the entire waterproofing system. Once the excess water reaches the SuperSump® it is pumped out and away from the home.
Here is a view of the WaterGuard® completely installed.
This is a view of the SuperSump® completely installed with cement securing it in place.
This is the IceGuard® system. The IceGuard® allows water to exit the home even if the discharge line (White pvc pipe) was frozen or clogged.
Here is a view of the end of the discharge line. The end is topped off with the LawnScape™ fitting. This device allows water to exit while keeping debris or other objects from entering. The top is removable for easy maintenance and cleaning.
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.
