Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing in Ridgefield, CT

Friday, October 7th, 2016 by Danielle Lariviere


This Ridgefield home had water seeping into the basement through the walls and floor. Water damage like this can wreak havoc on your home; it not only limits the available living space you and your family are able to enjoy, but mold follows shortly after you see water damage. Mold of any kind can bring down the property value of your home, it smells, and can cause health problems. This basement was not already waterproofed, so that is where Connecticut Basement Systems stepped in. We have been a waterproofing household name for over 28 years, and we have industry leading products to ensure your home stays dry!


Because of the amount of water and the potential for power outages in this Ridgefield neighborhood, we installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump. Our TripleSafe system contains 3 sump pumps that work together, or separately, depending on pumping demands. With this, you never have to worry about it becoming over-worked from pumping needs like most sump-pump systems. If there is a power outage, our system will keep operating due to its battery-powered backup pump. Next, we installed our WaterGuard below-floor drain system. This provides the water a clog-free, drainage path right into the sump pump, and then straight out of the home. 

To accompany the sump pump and drainage channel, we installed our SaniDry XP Dehumidifier System. When moisture builds up in a humid environment, like a basement or crawl space, mold spores and dust mites make themselves at home. Behind the water damaged walls and floors are very popular spots for these intrusive guests to linger. Our SaniDry XP Dehumidifier has a dual filtration system that cleans the air by removing mold spores and dust mites. This homeowner's basement is now fully equipped to ensure it stays dry and healthy.

If you would like to know how a TripleSafe or SaniDry would work in your basement or crawl space, give us a call today! Our estimates are always free, and at no obligation.
