A homeowner in Piqua, Ohio had recently purchased their home when they noticed that water was seeping into the basement near where an addition to the home had been built. The homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati to find solutions to this problem. The homeowner met with Chris, a certified inspector, who recommended WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a TrenchDrain, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System with an UltraSump Battery Back-up System is installed to resolve this problem for the homeowner.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed to intercept the water that is seeping into the basement. The water is then pumped into a sump pump system, such as a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System to be pumped out of the basement. The Trench Drain is a piping system with a grated top so that water coming from under doors can drain into the drainage system also to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a high-end Zoeller 1/3 hp cast iron pump. It has the WaterWatch Alarm that will sound if there is a problem with the pump alerting the homeowner to a problem to be resolved before damage can occur. The SuperLiner is a rugged-heavy duty liner with 96 holes in it to allow water to flow directly from under the floor. The Airtight Lid design keeps moisture from evaporating back into the basement, keeps things from falling in, strong enough to stand on, and keeps out bugs and odors.
The UltraSump Battery Back-up System is optional, but highly recommended battery back-up system. The UltraSump will turn on during primary pump or power failure and will run on battery. This also sounds an alarm to let the homeowner know that the back-up system is running.
Now that the WaterGuard is intercepting the water that seeps into the basement and the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is pumping the water out of the basement. The homeowner will be able to use the basement for storage and extra living space without worries of water intrusion.
