The home was in desperate need of a fix for their flooded basement. The homeowners had at least 4 inches of water in their basement and the old sump pump they had could not handle the amount of water coming in.
Unlike traditional sump pumps the triple safes battery back up lets you know when the power goes out once the pump kicks on.
Without a proper waterproofing system in a basement this can happen to you. You can risk having a couple inches of standing water into the basement.
This basement still has wet cement in this photo but once the cement dried the homeowner will not longer take on water.
When a basement is not properly waterproofed the homeowner loses valuable storage space. If in the future the basement is to be finished it is important to waterproof it before hand.
Once a basement is waterproofed a homeowner gets back the space they payed for when they bought the home. Nothing is worse then paying for a home and not being able to use your basement.
If a crawlspace is left not maintained then the home's support is at risk. Most homes have wood supporting their home, and if moisture grabs hold of the crawlspace then it will weaken the crawlspace.
Once a crawlspace is encapsulated then the moisture is prevented from entering the home and damaging the support to the home any further.
In this Guilford, CT home the homeowners had not only moisture and a pool of water in their basement, but also moisture in their crawl space. The homeowners wanted the problem fixed and done right so they contacted the experts at Connecticut basement Systems. Our expert basement water proofer Josh came out and made all of their worries go away. We installed our WaterGuard Drain System which is our patented product that is jackhammered in to the ground but above the foundation footing to avoid ANY clogging. We also installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump. Our premier sump pump has a total of three pumps for added security. The first pump turns on when water is coming in to the basement at a rate of 2,220 gallons of water per hour. The second pump will kick on if the water is more than the first pump can handle. The second pump is able to pump and addition 3,900 gallons of water per hour. The third pump will turn on if the power goes out and is able to pump out 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge.
In the crawl space we needed to encapsulate it to prevent any moisture from further damaging the home. When a crawl space is encapsulated the moisture in the outside of he property is kept outside so that the integrity of support of the home.
The homeowners are now able to rest assured that their home free of moisture and water.
