Basement Waterproofing - IceGuards Prevent Discharge Back Ups During Winter in Creal Springs, IL
The discharge lines on the exterior of this Creal Springs, IL home may become frozen in the cold Midwestern winter months. This blocks the water from being pumped out of the basement by the TripleSafe and could cause a flood. To prevent this from happening, Woods installed IceGuards on the discharge lines. IceGuards allow water to flow normally through it when discharge lines are unblocked but if they become frozen, the slotted openings in the IceGuards give water an alternative escape route into the yard.
