A Wilmington Ohio homeowner was having problems with moisture in the crawl space and also noticed some cracks in the walls, creaking floors, and doors that were difficult to close in the living space of the home. We installed SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System, a SmartDrain Crawl Space Drainage System, and SmartJacks Floor Supports to help with the problems that the homeowner was having in the crawl space.
Also recommended for this crawl space would be the CleanSpace Encapsulation System. CleanSpace is a 20-mil-thick plastic liner, similar to a pool liner that provides a vapor-proof barrier between the ground and the home. The CleanSpace Liner is attached to the floor and walls of the crawl space. This helps to control the moisture and also makes it easier to access the crawl space when needed.
The SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage system is a pump system specially made for crawl spaces. The SmartSump will pump water out of the crawl space. It also has a WaterWatch Alarm that will sound if there is plumbing leaking into the crawl space. The water will fill a special pocket on the lid and sound the alarm alerting the homeowner that there is a problem in the crawl space. This alarm will also sound if there is a power outage to alert the homeowner. If there is a plumbing leak, the water will flow into the Airtight Floor Drain on the lid but will not be able to come back int the crawl space.
The SmartPipe is a perimeter drainage system for the crawl space. It is a perimeter piping system with holes throughout it to allow water that is seeping into the crawl space to drain into the SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System. The SmartPipe is covered with a special filter fabric that will keep debris from entering the pipe. The water that is collected by the SmartPipe is drained into the SmartSump to be pumped out of the crawl space.
The SmartJacks Floor support is used to support the floors and can also be used to jack up a floor that is not level due to the settling of the home. The SmartJack is set into a structural stone and then attached to the floor joist with a bracket with an adjustable screw that is used to jack up the floor.
Now the homeowner will no longer have to worry about doors not being able to close, creaking floors, and getting more cracks in the walls. The homeowner may consider adding the CleanSpace Encapsulation System to the home at a later date to complete the crawl space project.
