The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky Case Studies: WaterGuard and TripleSafe Sump Pump System used to resolve water problems in Cincinnati, OH

Thursday, January 9th, 2020 by Elaine Davis


A residence in Cincinnati was experiencing water that was seeping into several areas of the basement.  The home has a block foundation and a sump pump had not yet been installed.  The owner scheduled an appointment with Mike S., a Certified Inspector, who recommended that a WaterGuard Basement waterproofing system and a TripleSafe Sump Pump System is installed to resolve the water problems in the basement.  


WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system that is installed under the floor along the foundation walls.  WaterGuard is used to intercept the water that is seeping into the basement.  The water that is collected into the WaterGuard piping is drained to a sump pump system and removed from the basement. 

The TripleSafe Sump Pump System has three pumps.  "Pump 1" is a 1/3hp pump, and this pump will be doing the majority of the pumping.  If this pump becomes overwhelmed by a high volume of water, then "Pump 2" will run, giving Pump 1 a "turbo boost" of power.  "Pump 3" is the UltraSump Battery Back-up System and will run during a pump or power failure. IceGuard was attached to the discharge line to prevent flooding due to a frozen line in the winter.  A LawnScape Outlet was installed at the end of the discharge line.  

Now when the water seeps into the basement, it will be collected by the WaterGuard and then be pumped back out of the basement by the TripleSafe Sump Pump System.  This will keep the basement dry for the homeowner and make the basement  a usable space that can be used by the homeowner without worries of water intrusion.
