This Jacksonville, Illinois basement had water seeping in from the foundation wall-floor seam as well as the basement stairwell. Woods Basement Systems installed TrenchDrain—a half round pipe with a grate that fits snuggly on top of it, designed to catch any water that may enter from the outside. Now, this basement is dry all the time.
Rainwater used to penetrate this Jacksonville, Illinois basement all the time. After we installed a TripleSafe sump pump with battery backup this, basement is now dry all year 'round!
The University of Illinois Extension building in Jacksonville, IL had hidden leaks in their finished basement. It flooded and left behind a massive mess in their meeting rooms which took many hours to clean up. The director, Aaron D, was worried about more damage so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate. Woods recommended installing a waterproofing system.
Woods installed two TripleSafe sump systems, one of which is shown in the picture, as part of the waterproofing system. Each TripleSafe contains a primary, a secondary and a battery back up pump. They take water from the drainage system and expel it out and away from the basement through their discharge lines. If the primary pump is unable to keep up with a higher volume of water coming from a heavy downpour, the secondary pump will automatically kick into action to keep the basement dry. In the event of a power outage, the battery back up pump can pump up to 11,000 gallons of water out of the basement on a full charge to keep water at bay until power is restored.
