Whether it is your personal home or the home of your loved ones, maintaining a healthy and safe living environment needs to be top of mind for all homeowners.
A homeowner in Belpre, OH, has lived in his house for many years. His son recently noticed water seeping into the basement. The basement is used for laundry and storage, and he didn’t want to see any of his father’s belongings damaged by the seeping water.
The man started to research how to best address this issue, and he found information about Ohio Basement Authority online. He was eager to contact us so he and his father could meet with one of our inspectors and learn more about how we could help. Inspector Brendan Kent completed a thorough evaluation of the leaking basement, and he recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
Foreman Martimiano Alonso then led his crew in installing the BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri Prox sump pump, and FreezeGuard attachment.
The basement’s perimeter was excavated to properly install the BasementGutter system. BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SafeDri Pro x sump pump. The water is then directed to the SafeDri Prox sump pump.
This system features a powerful ½ hp pump that can pump more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The SafeDri Prox is one of the many reliable sump pump systems we offer, and we installed this system in the homeowners’ basement in the larger sump liner used for the SafeDri Triple system to allow for easy future upgrades.
A FreezeGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. This attachment allows draining water an easy escape route if the discharge line freezes or becomes blocked. The discharge line also was tied into a new downspout conductor line that was installed on the property.
The homeowner and his son now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy solutions will always keep the basement and the home safe, healthy and dry for many years to come.
