A Florence, Kentucky homeowner was having problems with water seeping in at the floor in a finished basement. He met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, at The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky. Walt recommended that we install WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, along with A SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System and an UltraSump Battery Back-up Sump System.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed along the foundation walls to intercept water that is seeping into the basement. The water will then be drained into a sump pump system, such as the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System has a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump. It also comes with a WaterWatch Alarm, SuperLiner and Airtight Lid. The WaterWatch Alarm will sound an alarm during a pump or power to alert the homeowner. The SuperLiner has 96 holes in it to allow water to flow in from under the floor and is a rugged, heavy-duty liner that will not crack or cave in. The Airtight Lid keeps water from evaporating back into the basement, keeps out odors and quiets the pump. The UltraSump is a battery back up pump that will automatically come on if there is a pump or power failure. It runs on battery power and comes with its own battery and charging station.
With these systems now installed, the WaterGuard is intercepting the water that is seeping into the basement, and the homeowner can refinish the basement without worries of water intrusion.
