Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Grand Chain, IL
Water was entering a basement in Grand Chain, IL after it rained, causing concern. To solve this issue, the WaterGuard System was installed. This perimeter drainage system will catch wall seepage 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!
Water in Basement
Water has entered this basement after heavy rain.
Perimeter Drainage System
WaterGuard will catch wall seepage and drain it to the sump pump.
The TripleSafe can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump included inside that will help eliminate the water if the first pump is unable to keep up with the amount of water that is entering it.
IceGuard will allow water to escape if the pipes freeze over or become blocked for any reason.
