Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing a Basement in Litchfield, IL
Water was entering a basement in Litchfield, IL, so 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. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system, which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. Additionally, a SaniDry Sedona was installed. This high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidification system also includes an air filtration system, all in a single unit. This system wrings the air dry, and its powerful blower moves the dry air in and around the basement. Lastly, 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. Thanks to these systems, this basement will remain dry and clean for years to come!

WaterGuard will catch wall seepage and take it to the sump pump.
Included with the TripleSafe are two reliable cast-iron Zoeller pumps and a third battery-backup UltraSump pump that will take over if the power goes out.
The SaniDry will keep the basement air dry and clean.
IceGuard will allow water to escape if the pipes become frozen or blocked for any reason.
