Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Shelbyville, IL Basement Waterproofed
This basement in Shelbyville, IL has water leaking from the walls. To solve this issue, Woods installed the WaterGuard Perimeter Drainage System. These pipes intercept water at the wall and floor joint of the basement and drain it towards the TripleSafe Sump System, which was also installed to pump the water away from the house. This advanced sump pump system will remain working even if there is no power to the house, thanks to the UltraSump battery backup pumping system. Next, the IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge System was installed to allow water to escape if the pipes freeze over or are blocked for any reason. Lastly, TrenchDrain was installed by a doorway to catch any water that leaks from there. This basement will no longer have any problems with water damage!
This is what the perimeter drainage system looks like before it is covered with concrete.
