In this episode Bill talks about IceGuard. The IceGuard system is an excellent example of the careful thought and planning that goes into each aspect of the basement waterproofing process. This cone-like attachment effectively vents any water out of your drainage system in case of obstruction. Often times during the winter the discharge pipes for the sump pump, which are buried on the yard freeze and, if not given another way out, the water tends to come back into the sump pit. Backyard pests can also create blockage. When water comes back to the sump pit, the sump pump system is overwhelmed and might burn down. The IceGuard system removes any risk of an obstruction preventing the system from efficiently doing its job.
