Basements are imperfect structures made of concrete. The varying soil types and water in the soil can lead to a leaky basement. This could mean water coming in through the walls, floors and the joints between them.
WaterGuard Systems can be installed in new homes being built and also in the existing structures. The patented WaterGuard System has a design that separates it from the soil under your floor so it will never clog. It also has a special wall flange that creates a neat space between the floor and the wall to drain any wall seepage. The WaterGuard system is applicable to all types of foundations including block, poured concrete and stone. Water enters the system via inlet holes and flows in the WaterGuard conduit to a TripleSafe or other drain.
To install the WaterGuard System in your home the perimeter of your home if removed with a jackhammer creating a trench. After the system is placed in the trenches and then paved over to hold it in place. The WaterGuard is a channeling system that coincides well with the TripleSafe Sump Pump. The two work together to make sure that the water is pumped out of the home.
