Here is a view of where the water was entering into this homeowner's basement. The water was entering from the top of the foundation walls. On the outside of the home of this area, this is where the home met the driveway and the water would pool in this area thus eventually making its way into the basement.
Another view of the water but, showing the water pooling within the basement floor.
Another view of the water causing a major problem.
Within this photo you can see that the CleanSpace® vapor barrier has already been installed along the foundation walls and the trench for both the Sump Basin and WaterGuard® has been dug.
Here is a view of the entire waterproofing system fully installed working in tandem to protect this basement from future excess water.
A close up of the installed Sump Pump system.
This is where any excess water inside the basement will have to pass through to exit the home and away from the foundation. The IceGuard® is 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 in Airdrie, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through the top of the basement. Water would pool in between the home and the driveway and eventually make it's way into the basement. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able assess the situation and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address their concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install a CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. 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 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 which is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping, WaterWatch® Alarm, SuperLiner Sump Liner, Airtight Sump Lid, an airtight lid, and CleanPump Stands! 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.
