Water was coming in around the door. Notice the towels that had been against the door.
Inadequate sump pump system, with no perimeter drainage system.
This is the old sump pit after the sump had been removed. It shows that the home has corrugated pipe as its drainage system. It had failed, which helped cause the flooding in this basement
The TrenchDrain has been installed at the door and WaterGuard along the perimeter of the walls.
The one wall showing that WaterGuard has been installed with an inspection port. The inspection port allows for a quick inspection to make sure that there is no debris in the pipe. It also gives an access point for a dehumidifier to drain .
The new TripleSafe sump system .
This is where the sump pump will discharge the water, away from the home.
Another happy homeowner in Magnolia Delaware. They had water coming in around the basement door and their existing sump system could not keep up during a light rain. DryZone installed a TripleSafe sump system, WaterGuard for the perimeter drainage system and TrenchDrain around the door. Now they have a dry basement.
