A Cold Springs, Kentucky homeowner was having problems with a bowing wall that was also seeping water into the basement. Austin, a Certified Inspector, recommended having PowerBraces installed to stabilize the wall. A BrightWall Paneling System to cover the walls and will also direct water down into the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System. WaterGuard is a piping system that will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and will drain it out of the basement through a drainage system, such as a TripleSafe Sump Pump System.
The PowerBrace System will stabilize the wall from settling and can be adjusted to potentially straighten the wall over time. The BrightWall really brightens up the basement and also keep the water from penetrating into the living space. The TripleSafe Sump pump system consists of a three pump system. A primary pump, and a secondary pump that would automatically turn on if the primary pump fails or it becomes overwhelmed. If the pump becomes overwhelmed both pumps will run together and can pump 6200 gallons of water per hour. The third pump is the battery back-up pump and will automatically turn on if there is a power failure.
A Highland Heights, Kentucky homeowner has a home with a block foundation that is about 100 years old. Water is seeping into the basement from the cellar so they called The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky for help with this problem. They met with a Certified Inspector, Steve, who recommended WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System along with an UltraSump Battery Back-up System, and BrightWall Paneling System.
WaterGuard is a piping system installed along the foundation walls to intercept water that seeps into the basement. It will then be pumped out of the basement through a sump pump system, such as the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System.
The SuperSump is a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump. It includes the WaterWatch Alarm, the SuperLiner, and an Airtight Lid. The UltraSump Battery Back-up System is optional but highly recommended. This system will automatically turn on if there is a primary pump or power failure and comes with its own battery pack and charging station.
BrightWall Paneling system is 4x8 sheets of plastic paneling that not only cover the basement walls but drain water leaks down into the WaterGuard unseen. BrightWall is attached to the walls with drilled in fasteners and gives the basement a semi-finished look.
