Sump Pumps Case Studies: Water Seeping In Through The Walls In Lexington, KY

Monday, October 15th, 2018 by Elaine Davis


A homeowner in Lexington, Kentucky had only been in his home for about a week when he noticed water seeping in through the walls in his unfinished basement.  He called The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky for a solution to this problem.  



The homeowner met with our Certified Inspector, Michael Bauer.  Michael recommended that he have WaterGuard, SuperSump pump system with UltraSump battery back up system along with IceGuard and a LawnScape outlet.  He also recommended BrightWall and PowerBraces.

WaterGuard is our patented perimeter piping system designed to intercept the water and drain it safely away.  The water can be drained into a sump pump system, such as the SuperSump.  The Super Sump pump is a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump.  It has The WaterWatch Alarm System that will sound an alarm if the water rises above the point that the pump should have turned on.  This will alert the homeowner to a problem with the system.  The UltraSump pump battery back up pumping system is used during power outages or any primary pump failures.  This backup sump pump system will give you peace of mind that your basement will be protected.  BrightWall is a durable plastic paneling system that is part of our waterproofing system, it directs water into WaterGuard and gives your basement a semi-finished look.  PowerBrace System will immediately stabilize your foundation walls and protect them against further movement.  With these products installed, the homeowner will now have a more usable space to enjoy for many years to come.
