Our WaterGuard interior drain was fitted over the length of the wall affected by the hydrostatic pressure. The WaterGuard Internal Drain contains spacers that line the rear side of the wing and holes below to intercept any seepage through concrete pores, cracks, and wall-to-foot seams.
In addition, the installation of a sump pump system was essential to draw water that seeps into the drain to the outside, far away from home. A sump pump system such as the SumperSump contains several important components other than the pump such as the 100-hole watertight receptacle, an airtight lid, a floor drain in the sump lid, a pump stand and an alarm system.
