A Lebanon, Ohio homeowner was having problems with moisture and mold on a finished basement wall. A sump pump had not been installed in this basement. He met with Roger, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that WaterGard Basement Waterproofing System and a SuperSump Pump System is installed.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed along the foundation wall to intercept water that is seeping into the basement. The water is then drained into the sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump. It also includes the WaterWatch Alarm, the SuperLiner and an Airtight Lid that will prevent moisture from evaporating back into the basement, keep things from falling into the liner, and quiets the pump.
Controlling the water that is coming into the basement will help prevent mold growth and damage to the finished walls caused by the water.
A Lebanon, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the basement through the seam of the wall and floor and called The Basement Doctor for a solution to this problem. After meeting with a Certified Inspector, Donny, the homeowner decided to have the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System installed.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed along the perimeter of the basement foundation to intercept water that is seeping in. WaterGuard is designed to drain the water, unseen, into the sump pump system to be drained out of the basement.
In these photos, you can see that the WaterGuard system is set into a trench that is dug out along the perimeter of the basement and then covered with a layer of cement leaving only a small wall flange exposed.

A homeowner in Lebanon, Ohio called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati to find a solution to a problem they were having with a porch that was sinking and cracking. We installed a Helical Pier System to stabilize the porch foundation and protect it against further movement. The helical Piers are steel piers that are mechanically screwed down into the ground until they reach competent soil. A bracket is attached to the pier and to the foundation. This transfers the weight of the foundation through the pier and to the competent soil. This stabilizes the foundation and protects it from further movement.
If you are experiencing cracking and sinking of a foundation, call The Basement Doctor. A knowledgeable, Certified Inspector will show you how we can help you protect your home's foundation.
A home in Lebanon, Ohio, had standing water in the crawl space. The homeowner was not sure where this water was coming from, so they called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati for a solution to this problem. After meeting with a certified inspector, the homeowner decided to have a CleanSpace Encapsulation System installed to keep this from happening again.
CleanSpace is a 20-mil-thick plastic liner that is attached to the walls and the floor of the crawl space. This provides a vapor-proof barrier between the ground and the home. A SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System was installed to drain water away from the crawl space. The SmartSump has a WaterWatch Alarm that will sound if there is a pump or power failure. This is a great feature to have because many homeowners don't go into the crawl space to realize there is a problem with the system until it is too late, and damage has occurred. Another great feature of this system is the Airtight Floor Drain. If water from a plumbing leak flows into the crawl space, the water will drain down into the Airtight Floor Drain and will be removed from the crawl space. The homeowner also had an UltraSump Battery Back up System installed. The UltraSump automatically turns on during a power failure and comes with a battery and charging station. SilverGlo Crawl Space Wall Insulation was placed along the walls of the crawl space. The SilverGlo insulation has graphite infused into it to reflect heat into the crawl space. This makes the home more comfortable to heat and makes the floors warmer in the winter.
These products working together will keep the crawl space dry and the inside of the home warmer.
We installed WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, and PowerBrace System for a homeowner in Lebanon, Ohio.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system that is installed under the floor around the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard collects the water that is seeping in and then drains it into a sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is the system that was recommended for this project. The SuperSump is a 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron sump pump. The SuperSump can pump up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. It comes with a WaterWatch Alarm, SuperLiner and an Airtight Lid with an Airtight Floor Drain. The WaterWatch Alarm will sound if the water reaches the level that the pump should have come on or during a pump or power failure. This alerts the homeowner to a problem with the system that needs to be resolved. The SuperLiner is a heavy-duty liner that will not cave in or crack and has 96 holes throughout it to allow water to also flow in from under the floor. The Airtight Lid keeps the water that is in the liner from evaporating back into the basement, keeps out odors and insects and helps to quiet the pump. The Airtight floor drain allows water from a plumbing leak to flow into the SuperLiner to be pumped out of the basement.
PowerBrace System is used to stabilize foundation walls that are bowing or tipping. The PowerBrace is a steel I-Beam that is installed tightly against the failing wall and attached with brackets to the floor and floor joists. An adjustable bracket is designed to be tightened over time to potentially reverse the wall failure.
