Here is a view of the area in which showed signs of flooding.
This is the aftermath of the installation of the window well drain. Under all the gravel there's a little drain which will allow any excess water to drain into the home but, down and into the installed WaterGuard® system. The water is then directed to the sump pump and pumped out of the home.
Here is a view of the system keeping this home from flooding.
This beast of a system pumps any excess water outside of the home.

This homeowner in Southeast Calgary, Alberta wanted an answer to their question of "Why is water leaking into my basement?". In search of a solution this homeowner had contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home to assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. 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 System is installed along the wall. CleanSpace® 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 WaterGuard® drainage system below. 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 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.
