Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing a Basement in Lake Saint Louis, MO
Water was entering a basement in Lake Saint Louis, MO, and the sump pump was not eliminating this water correctly. To solve these issues, the WaterGuard System was first installed. These drainage pipes intercept water at the perimeter of the basement and drain it toward the sump pump system. This system has a design that will drain any wall seepage without allowing dirt and debris from the floor to enter and clog the pipes. next, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This system assures protection from common problems with an ordinary pump. It can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump that will help eliminate the water if the first pump can't keep up. It also features a removable airtight lid which reduces noise, prevents objects from falling in, and keeps moisture, insects, and odor from coming out of the sump. Thanks to these systems, this basement will remain dry and clean for years to come!
