A view of the homeowner's window well. In order to prevent flooding a WellDuct® Window Well Drain was installed to control the excess water. The excess water is guided towards the installed sump system within this homeowner's basement.
The CleanSpace® was added for extra protection, just in case water started leaking in from the corners of the window. If water were to leak in, it is guided down the CleanSpace® and into the installed WaterGuard® below.
The WaterGuard® is somewhat of a 'track' in which excess water travels down and into the installed sump system.
This is the heart of the entire system. All of the excess water is pumped out of the home from this sump pump.
All the water pumped in, has to pass the patented IceGuard® system. This device allows water to continue to exit even if the discharge line was frozen or clogged.
This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with their window well. During heavy rainfalls the window well would flood and eventually leak in to their basement. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to assess the situation and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specifically to address the incoming water from the window well. Our Production Team was able to then come to the home to install a WellDuct® Window Well Drain designed to prevent basement flooding due to window well leakage. The low profile WellDuct® system channels excess water from the exterior window well down and behind the installed CleanSpace® vapor barrier. The CleanSpace® vapor barrier is installed along the walls of the basement and is made of a 100% waterproof plastic. It has 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 our 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 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. And finally the discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot away from the home installed flush with the grass on the lawn so you can mow right over it.
This homeowner was thoroughly impressed with how well the installation went.
