Our client had recurring water problems cause of the inadequate sump pump system that was installed when he bought the house. We installed the SuperSump, along with an UltraSump battery backup sump pump which alone can pump out 12,000 gallons of water on full charge. This system provided the owner with a long-lasting protection from power outages, sump pump failures, blown fuses, and similar issues.
We have waterproofed this basement in Hawkesbury with our WaterGuard interior drain system . Once connected, this products form a highly efficient drainage system that intercepts water from the floor of the basement at the foundation and redirects it away from the foundation of the house.
This system of insulation and waterproofing allows this basement space to block water infiltration and preserve heat, which leads to a reduction in energy consumption costs.
Our customers who lived in Hawkesbury, Qc bought their house several years ago and everything seemed great until their basement had problems of water infiltration and constant humidity. They had every intention of finishing the basement in order to benefit from all the space, but it was impossible with a basement that is not dry.
Our specialist recommended a complete drainage system to protect their entire basement, all the time!

Mr. Boutin had a crawl space that was not well insulated and very humid.
He contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to have a dry crawl space and strengthen the support beams, which are made of wood.
Our experts insulated the crawl space walls with our SilverGlo panels and added our CleanSpace vapor barrier to lock in moisture and provide a clear appearance. They replaced the sump pump with our SmartSump system which contains a 1/3 HP cast iron Zoeller pump. And then they added our Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier to control the humidity level and filter the air. In order to reinforce the slowly rotting wooden support beams, they installed galvanized steel SmartJack pillars.
With this solution, Mr. Boutin now has a permanently dry crawl space.
Our customers from Hawkesbury, wanted to use their basement properly but it was not possible due water infiltration and constant humidity.
Water was seeping on the floors, damaging their furniture, stored objects and the basement was constantly wet.
After contacting our company, our foreman Petru Rotaru recommended a complete drainage system to waterproof their basement.
We have installed an interior drain to intercept water coming from the perimeter of the foundation wall, the WaterGuard; a Supersump pump system to pump out water intercepted by the WaterGuard drain; an Iceguard that allows water to get out of your basement even if the pipe freezes in winter and Lawnscape outlet.
Now that the basement has been waterproofed, our clients where able to benefit from the area fully.
Mr. James has contacted us to talk about his infiltration of water in the basement. Water was flowing into the rooms through wall cracks existing in the basement. In addition, a pedestal sump pump was in use, an outdated and inefficient measure to stop heavy rain and spring thaws from leaking into the basement.
To fix this situation, we dug trenches totaling 60 feet in length to install the WaterGuard interior drain in this perimeter. This allows all incoming water to be redirected to the pump no matter what level this water is coming from. All drainage was connected to the TripleSafe sump pump.
This pump is installed in the ground and the WaterGuard drain is connected to it to draw water to an external discharge line. The pipes are embedded in the floor so as not to waste space and be dangerous by staying at ground level. The TripleSafe contains 3 pumps, one of which runs on battery power during power outages.
To complete the system, we installed 2 LawnScape and IceGuard vents. The first is installed in the grass away from the foundation of your house, and the second is installed in the pipe at the wall. The IceGuard allows water to drain even if the pipe freezes in the winter and the LawnScape is perfect to resist the mud that forms in the grass during rainy periods. Thus, the pipe never blocks, the pump works at all times, and your basement does not enter any more water!
Our team did a great job despite the complexity of the problem. The problem was treated at the source!
Mr. Richard and his family moved to their new house in Hawkesbury recently, and they knew that the basement had issues, but they though that they could deal with them later.
After time the children started having health issues like asthma symptoms, especially during the times they used to sit inside the house, furthermore they knew that the reasons where related to water inflation problems in the basement.
Our client did lots of research on the internet, found Systèmes Sous-sol Québec, saw all the positive feedback from our customers and finally contacted our company for a free inspection.
After the inspection, we have recommended our company’s Waterguard system which is an Interior drain that has been installed all around the basement room to lead all the water that seeped into this area. In Addition we have installed our company’s Supersump pump and a Cleanspace vapor barrier to prevent water vapor and humidity from passing through.
After the installation Mr. Richard and his family felt so much better since the children’s asthma symptoms has stopped and the basement has been waterproofed for good!
Our client, from Hawkesbury, was constantly suffering from problems caused by crawlspace.
He noticed cracks in the cement blocks as well as moisture; cold soils, musty smells and creaky floors, and the area became a dwelling for pests which eventually prompted her to call us to encapsulate this space under her house.
Our specialist, Andre Stewert, recommended installing the CleanSpace encapsulation membrane to reduce humidity and reduce mold, and a specially designed SmartSump ™ for crawl spaces to provide all necessary protection against leaks and floods.
This sump pump is equipped with a Zoeller® cast iron primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump ® emergency battery pump.
After installation, the crawl space seemed so clear and clean that our client was able to use it as a storage area. He is now reassured that the humidity that has caused problems in her crawl space is a thing of the past!
