You can see the water filling up the small holes in the concrete. This is one of the reasons that we install a sump pump first. It will help to keep the work area clear of water. In this case, it kept the water out of the french drain that our crew was digging.
Our crew widens the hole to allow for a big sump pump. As soon as they get it opened up, the water fills it right back up. Flooded basement is one thing, just imagine if that water was in your living room like in this house.
This powerful Zoeller sump pump will keep the water out of the basement, or living room in this case. DryZone also uses a sealed lid and several "fringe" benefits in our sump pump systems. With a built in alarm system, it will tell you if the pipes leak and will also keep the smells and humidity lower.
Our WaterGuard drainage pipe system sits directly on top of the concrete footer. This keeps dirt out of the pipe much better than other systems. If your pipes are not sitting in dirt, they will be far less likely to clog.
Since the existing drywall got ruined by water, the homeowner was thrilled that DryZone uses a few feet of quality vapor barrier on the walls. This will protect any walls from future damage.
Sometimes our basement waterproofing products get used in a split level home. This house had a family room that was only about one foot below ground. That was all the water needed to find a way in. It ruined the walls, carpet, and some furniture. Once the WaterGuard system was finished, the water wasn't an issue.
