Photo Album: Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Lithopolis, OH

Album Description

During the seven years he has lived in his house, a homeowner in Lithopolis, OH, found himself cleaning up after a leaking, flooding basement a few times a year. Water seemed to seep inside the basement during periods of heavy rain, and the current sump pump system wasn’t able to keep up with the water.

He wanted to have these issues addressed once and for all. After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, he was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. He met with Jeff Floit who evaluated the condition of the basement. Jeff then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

Foreman Martimiano Alonso and his crew then installed the BasementGutter system around the basement’s perimeter. This special system catches water seeping inside from the walls and floor, and then directs the water to a sump pump system. We placed the homeowner’s current pumps inside a SafeDri Triple sump pump liner, which allows for easy future upgrades. The older sump pump was removed and the pit was backfilled and concealed. We also placed a FreezeGuard on the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding.

The homeowner is pleased to now have a reliable system that will keep his basement dry.
