Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing a Basement in Benton, IL
Water was coming down the walls of a basement in Benton, IL, causing damage to them. 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. 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 and clean for years to come!
Perimeter Drainage System
WaterGuard will catch wall seepage and direct 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.
IceGuard will allow water to escape if the pipes become clogged or freeze over.
The LawnScape Outlet will release water far from the house, so it doesn't re-enter the basement.
