Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Waterproofing a Basement in Louisville, IL
Water was entering a basement in Louisville, IL, causing damage to it. To solve this issue, a partial CleanSpace Basement Wall System was first installed. This will act as a drain curtain that will make sure that water can drain directly into the WaterGuard System. This perimeter drainage system will catch wall seepage and drain it toward the TripleSafe Sump Pump System, draining water from WaterGuard and below the basement and discharging 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. 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.
Water has been leaking down this basement wall and causing damage.
Wall and Drainage Systems
CleanSpace will drain wall leaks down to WaterGuard, which will direct 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 freeze over or become blocked for any reason.
