WaterGuard: The Non-Clogging Waterproofing System

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 by Stacie Ellis

WaterGuard is a patented Woods Basement Systems product and is the best solution to permanently waterproofing your basement.  It is a state-of-the-art piping system designed specifically to solve basement water problems effectively without the worry of clogging.


Leaky basements are a problem that homeowners have dealt with for over 100 years.  All basements are built differently on different soils that may react or compress in varying ways, depending on the environmental conditions.  The unstable soil results in foundation settlement, providing several channels for water to enter into the basement.  Over the years, contractors and engineers have tried developing numerous systems to fix this problem.  However, WaterGuard is the best system to meet all the basement needs and keep the basement permanently dry.

The most common problem with basement drainage systems is clogging.  WaterGuard is engineered not to sit in the dirt, so clogging from silt and sediment under the floor isn’t a problem.  It is installed on top of the footing rather than beside it, preventing any clogging from occurring. 

WaterGuard has large holes in the back to accept water and a wall flange with special segments.  The wall flange creates a neat space between the floor and the wall and collects any wall seepage without allow dirt and debris from the floor to enter.  WaterGuard also has a removable port for easy access if necessary.  The WaterGuard system can be used with all types of foundations including block, poured concrete, and stone.

The WaterGuard system is most effective when installed with a TripleSafe sump pump, offering complete protection for your basement.
