Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing a Basement in Cisco, IL
Water was leaking into a basement in Cisco, IL, causing damage to the walls. To solve this issue, the WaterGuard System was installed. These drainage pipes intercept water at the perimeter of the basement and drain it toward the TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which will drain water from WaterGuard and below the basement and discharge it out of the house. Next, the IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge System was installed. The patented design of this system automatically allows water to escape through its perforations when pipe terminations are blocked, usually by ice or snow. Lastly, a LawnScape Outlet was installed. This connects the discharge lines to a special extension sending water away from the foundation while camouflaging the end of the pipe. Thanks to these systems, this basement will remain dry and clean for years to come!
Perimeter Drainage System
WaterGuard will drain the wall seepage over to the sump pump.
The TripleSafe can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump that will help eliminate the water if the first one is unable to keep up.
IceGuard will allow water to escape if the pipes freeze over in the winter.
