Waterproofing Upgrades Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Canal Winchester, OH

After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, homeowners in Canal Winchester, OH, reached out to us because they were interested in improving their exterior drainage system.

The owners met with one of our inspectors who recommended upgrading the system by having one of our crews remove the above-ground pipes and place them in the ground.

While at the home, our inspector also looked at the basement because the owners were concerned with water seeping in corners where the exterior drain lines were placed. Along with visible water intrusion and damage, our inspector noticed there was an inefficient sump pump system that was failing to keep up with the seeping water. The inspector then presented the homeowners with some reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

Nate Klingenberger and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Triple sump pump, as well as exterior FreezeGuard attachments and new drainage lines.

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 drain into the SafeDri Triple sump pump system. This system features three powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery.

Additionally, FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding if the lines freeze or become blocked. Newer, thicker pipe was used for the exterior drainage lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain far enough away from the home’s foundation.

The homeowners can rest easier knowing all of these trustworthy solutions will work together to keep their home safe and dry.
