All-Dry of the Carolinas Case Studies: Unfinished basement gets WaterGuard

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020 by Abby Baldwin

Challenge

This home in Asheville, NC was having water come into their basement through the foundation. This basement was half finished and half unfinished. The water was coming in on the unfinished side of the basement, raising up through the floor, and seeping onto the finished side. The puddling water was causing major damage to the floors. The homeowners had replaced the floors a few times already before they called us at All-Dry of the Carolinas to see if we could help.

We sent our design specialist David Listovitch out to the area to check out the situation. The homeowners had already pulled up floor that in the basement when David arrived so he could see the damage. The old floor tiles were falling apart and separating, and there was water stains all on the unfinished floor leading onto the other side. David suggested that the owners go with the WaterGuard waterproofing system to solve their issue.

Solution

WaterGuard was added around the perimeter of this basement, it intercepts the water and drains it unseen and safely into the SuperSump Pump where it is then flushed from the basement. WaterGuard is different because it is designed to not sit in dirt like most draining systems do. There is a special wall flange that creates space between the floor and wall allowing wall seepage to drain through the WaterGuard while keeping it away from the dirt. Since this type of drainage is separated from dirt, the chances of it clogging are nearly impossible! The WaterGuard directs the water to the SuperSump Pump where it is then flushed from the basement outside to the LawnScape outlet.

This LawnScape Outlet had an additional feature called IceGuard attached to it. IceGuard is placed on the discharge line as a precautionary action in the case of a frozen, clogged, or covered LawnScape outlet. If the LawnScape outlet is frozen, clogged, or covered, water that is draining from the SuperSump can push back into the pump and flood your basement, short out the pump, or both! The IceGuard gives an exit to any water that is builds up in the system due to whatever reasons.

Together with these products our All-Dry team was able to dry up this basement and save the homeowners from having to replace their floors again.
