Interior Water Control System Wet Basement Solution

  • A 10-16 inch trench is cut at the base of the wall along the outside perimeter of the basement.
  • The blocks along the exterior walls are drilled at each cell so that the blocks will weep into the system thus keeping the outside wall dry.
  • This trench is lined with 4 inch perforated drainage pipe laid beside the footing. The drainage pipe is pitched towards the sump pit so that gravity directs the flow into the sump pit.
  • Next 3/4 clear gravel is install to direct water to the.
  • A 15-18 inch sump liner, approximately 30 inches deep, is installed.
  • A professional grade sump pump, with a full pumping capacity is installed (optional battery backup system available)
  • A 1 1/2 inch diameter discharge pipe leads the water from the pump to the exterior of the house at grade level with a check valve install and a downward angle to avoid freeze up in winter.
  • Next we apply a mould molecule spray that stays on the work area.
  • The delta or membrane is install over the trench and up the wall 1ft to 2ft.
