Foundation Repair Photo Album: Waterproofing System and Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors Installed in Three Hills, AB
This homeowner located in Three Hills, Alberta had encountered issues with their foundation walls bowing in various areas. On top of the need of structural repair, the home was experiencing water leakage into the basement. In search of the best solution to address these situations, they had contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to assess their situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote, and designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our Foundation Supportworks Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchor System. Heavy-duty, galvanized earth anchors are embedded in stable, undisturbed soil outside your foundation wall. Each anchor is connected by a steel rod to a wall plate that provides clamping pressure against the inside of the foundation wall. This method also offers the potential straighten the wall back to its original position over time! To address the water issue our Production Team had come to the home to install 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 new TripleSafe™sump pump system. Our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe™ provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery. 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. And finally the discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot that is installed flush with the grass allowing the homeowner to maintain there lawn without hindrance.
