Sump Pump Installation Photo Album: Wet basement waterproofed in Saint-Isidore-de-Laprairie, Qc
Waterproofing a basement and removing water vapor is a major renovation project that will change the quality of the air and the environment of your entire home. We installed the WaterGuard Water Drain System and the SuperSump Sump Pump System to solve the problem for this client in Saint-Isidore-de-Laprairie. It had been some time that his place was under water infiltration and now wanted to get rid of the problem in order to use the space in the basement. So we sent Sam who recommended the installation of a basement waterproofing system that will solve the problem at its source, once and for all.
Photo of the basement during the inspection
When our basement design specialist visited this customer, he noticed that the place was very wet. There were 3 sump pump holes that were not used properly.
Inefficient sump hole
A sump hole with a pump simply thrown into the hole will not solve the problem at its source. In addition, the water that evaporates is infected. It humidifies the space and you end up breathing that air that rises to the upper floors.
Inspecting the area
During inspection, our team will indicate the best location to install the interior drain and sump pump systems.
A hermetic sump pump system
The SuperSump is an efficient sump pump system, hermetic and beautiful to the eye. It intercepts and evacuates water that infiltrates the basement and prevents water vapor from affecting the quality of the air. It is also visually beautiful compared to the old system.
Infiltration of groundwater and water vapor
The concrete lets the water pass at the joints, so that the perimeter of the basement is constantly wet. In addition, the water vapor that arises humidifies the space.
Installation of an internal drain system
The inner drain is installed on the footing of the foundation (jogging) and allows water that infiltrates through the ground and joints to be intercepted and vented to a water drain system.
LawnScape accessory installed
The LawnScape deters clogging of discharge line, Withstands weight of mowers and has a removable top for cleaning.
