BasementGutter, SafeDri and Other Solutions will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Nevada, OH

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017 by Holly Richards-Purpura


Homeowners in Nevada, OH, have lived in their house for many years. Recently, however, they noticed problems in their basement they knew they needed to fix sooner rather than later. Water appeared to be seeping into the basement that they use as storage and entertainment/living space. It also was obvious that the existing sump pump system was failing to keep up with this seeping water.

Before losing any of their belongings to water damage, the owners wanted to make sure they addressed these issues. As they began to research potential repair options, they came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website. They were then motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who evaluated the condition of the basement. Jacob then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.


Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz then led his crew in installing these products which included the BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri Triple sump pump, Window Well Drainage system and YardWell outlet.

BasementGutter is designed to sit in the basement’s sub-floor and atop the footing. This allows the system to accept water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SafeDri Triple sump pump system. Equipped with three powerful pumps and an external backup battery, the trustworthy SafeDri Triple will always operate to pump water out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation.

Additionally, several Window Well Drains were installed underneath the windows. If any water fills the exterior window wells, it is directed through this special channel along the wall and down to the BasementGutter system. This prevents water from flooding the window well, as well as the basement.

A YardWell outlet also was placed on the end of the exterior sump pump discharge line to camouflage it in the side of the yard.

The homeowners are pleased these solutions were installed to help them create a safe and dry living environment.
