WaterGuard and SuperSump resolve water seeping into a basement in in Russellville, OH

A Russellville, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the basement.  They met with Mike, a Certified Inspector, who recommended a WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System and a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is installed.

WaterGuard is a piping system installed along the foundation walls to intercept water that seeps into the basement.  The water will then be drained into the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System.

The SuperSump has a 1/3hp cast iron pump that can pump 2,650 gallons of water an hour.  The WaterWatch Alarm sounds if the water reaches the point that the pump should have turned on.  This will alert the homeowner to a problem with the system.  The SuperLiner is a rugged, heavy-duty liner that will not crack or cave in, it has 96 holes in it to allow water to flow in from below the floor, and features a "pump ring" that centers the pump in the liner to prevent the switch from hanging up on the sidewalls.  It also has an AirTight lid that will keep water from evaporating back into the basement, keeps things from falling into the liner, and quiets the pump.  The lid is so strong you can stand on it.

With the WaterGuard intercepting the water and the sump pumping it out of the basement, this homeowner will be able to use the basement without worrying about water intrusion. 

Crawl space moisture resolved in Georgetown, OH

A Georgetown, Ohio homeowner had concerns about moisture in the crawl space and was interested in encapsulation.  He met with Steve, a Certified Inspector, who recommended CleanSpace Encapsulation System, along with SilverGlo Crawl Space Insulation, and Rim Tight Rim Joist Insulation, and a SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System is installed to resolve this problem for the homeowner.

In these pictures you can see the before and after of this crawl space.  Before the crawl space had little to no protection from moisture seeping into the crawl space.  Now with CleanSpace Encapsulation System the crawl space has a vapor and mold proof liner and the SmartSump will drain any water that seeps under the CleanSpace liner out of the crawl space.  

CleanSpace Liner is installed in Blanchester, OH

In these photos, you can see the difference that a CleanSpace Liner makes in the crawl space.  The CleanSpace Liner is a plastic liner, similar to a pool liner, that is installed on the floor and walls of the crawl space to provide a moisture-proof barrier between the ground and the home. 

PowerBraces used on a bowing wall in Oregonia, OH

An Oregonia, Ohio homeowner has a bowing block basement wall in his home that was built in the 1920s.  The homeowner met with Walt, a professionally trained inspector for a solution to this problem.  Walt recommended that PowerBraces are installed to resolve this problem for the homeowner.

PowerBraces are steel I-Beams installed tightly against the wall and secured with brackets that are attached to the floor and floor joists.  These PowerBraces immediately stabilize the wall and can be tightened over time to potentially reverse wall failure.  

 

WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing Sytem to resolve water seeping in at the floor in Waynesville, OH

A Waynesville, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping in at the floor in a finished basement.  The Basement has poured foundation walls and a sump pump had been installed.  The homeowner met with Walt, one of our Certified Inspectors, who recommended that WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System and a TripleSafe Sump Pump System are installed to resolve this problem that the homeowner was having.

WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed in the floor along the perimeter walls.  This piping system intercepts the water that is seeping into the basement and drains it into the sump pump to be pumped out of the basement.

The TripleSafe Sump Pump is a three pump system.  Pump 1 is the primary pump that will do the majority of the pumping.  If pump 1 fails or becomes overwhelmed with the amount of water that is seeping into the basement pump 2, a 1/2 hp high-volume pump will also run to pump water out of the basement.  Both pumps working together can pump up to 6,00 gallons of water per hour out of the basement.  Pump 3 is an UltraSump Battery Back-up sump pump.  If there is a power failure, this pump will run on battery power to pump water out of the basement.  It comes with its own battery and charging station. 

Now that the homeowner has WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System and a TripleSafe Sump Pump System installed, they will be able to refinish the basement without worries of water intrusion.  Any water that seeps in will go into the WaterGuard piping and be pumped out of the basement.
