Waterproofing a Flooding Tilghman, MD Basement

Flooding in the basement became a normal occurrence for this Tilghman, MD homeowner. Over time, this homeowner was unable to use their basement for storage because there was constantly a puddle near the laundry area. He knew he had a water leak, but did not know the leak was coming from his basement walls! He had the experts at DryZone waterproof his walls and create a WaterGuard drain system to guide water to a TripleSafe sump pump.

Talbot County home with a concrete crawlspace needed a new sump pump

This home in the town of Bozman was constantly wet. Instead of the typical dirt crawlspace, this home was built with a concrete floor in the crawlspace. A concrete floor will protect the crawlspace from moisture better than a dirt floor, but it still isn't waterproof or sealed. Concrete is basically a very hard sponge, meaning there are a lot of very tiny holes in the floor. These holes will let water through when it builds up under the slab. When DryZone waterproofs a concrete crawlspace, we treat is much like a leaky basement. Drainage pipes are installed to direct ground water off to the sump pump. In this particular house, the amount of pipes installed meant the homeowner needed three separate pumps. When you have a long section of drainage pipe between pumps, the water tends not to move as easily. Think of it like a mountain stream, at one end it could be a raging rapid and at the other end it might be a tiny trickle. To keep the system working efficiently, the homeowner and designer laid out a plan for over 300 feet of pipe and three independent pumps.
