Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Millersport, OH

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

Since moving into their house six years ago, homeowners in Millersport, OH, noticed a problem with water leaking into their basement. This seemed to happen every time it rained, and this resulted in puddles on the floor and visible damage. It also was obvious that the existing sump pump was failing to keep up with this seeping water.

The homeowners plan to live in the house for many years, so they were motivated to address this problem once and for all. As they began to research repair options, the owners came across information about Ohio Basement Authority on Home Advisor. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them.

The owners met with one of our experienced team members. Our inspector evaluated the condition of the leaking basement, and he recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

Solution

One of our crews, led by Manuel Inguil, then installed these trustworthy products that work together to keep the basement dry.

They included the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Pro x sump pump. BasementGutter is designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor.

This water is then directed to the new sump pump system, the SafeDri Pro x. The SafeDri’s ½ hp pump inside the liner can pump more than 2,000 gallons of water out of the basement per hour. The pump was placed inside the larger liner used for the SafeDri Triple system to allow for easy future upgrades.

Additionally, a FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to allow water to continue to escape the line if it freezes or becomes blocked. This line also was tied into a new downspout conductor line that was installed on the property. It was buried underground and directed to drain near a catch basin at the edge of the property. A YardWell outlet also was installed to conceal the end of this discharge line.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier forever home.
