Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Cracked and Leaking Foundation Repaired in Winfield, MO
A foundation wall was bowing inward in Winfield, MO. Cracks were starting to appear, and water was starting to leak out of them. To solve these issues, the PowerBrace System was first installed. This will permanently stabilize the foundation and eliminate any further inward movement. This will also reverse the effects of wall failure, straightening the walls to their original position and closing the cracks to prevent water leakage. Next, the CleanSpace Basement Wall System was installed. This will prevent water vapor from permeating the basement walls and drain any leaks down to the WaterGuard System. 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. 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, clean, and stable for years to come!
Cracks and Leaking
Due to this foundation bowing, cracks have been appearing and leaking water.
PowerBrace will reverse the effects of wall failure, and CleanSpace will drain wall leaks down to WaterGuard, which will take the water 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.
IceGuard will allow water to escape if the pipes become frozen or blocked for any reason.
