Negative-side sealing attempts to coat the inside wall of the basement with a 'waterproof' paint, coating, or sealant. This solution will generally work very well for about six months to two years (check the warranty), and then the product will begin to respond to hydrostatic pressure and will blister and peel, soon spalling from the wall completely.
Although the sump pump was able to drain the water the homeowner still experienced water entering the basement during periods of rain fall. There was also a oder in the basement.
Water leaking into basements is a problem that's been around for over a century. Over the years, contractors have tried a number of methods that just haven't worked. Most drainage pipes sit in the soil and can clog over time. The patented WaterGuard® system is designed to meet these challenges and keep your basement dry permanently.
The patented WaterGuard® system has a design that separates it from the soil under your oor so it will never clog. It also has a special wall fange that creates a neat space between the door and the wall to drain any wall seepage, without allowing dirt and debris from the oor to enter. The WaterGuard® system is applicable to all types of foundations including block, poured concrete, stone, etc.
For an effective and more economical solution, our SuperSump® Pump System can help keep the basement dry. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement.
