Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing Success in Utica, KY

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018 by Cassi Sherman Henes

Challenge

Utica, KY is part of Daviess County and is mostly rolling hills mixed with flat valleys. This topography creates low-laying areas where groundwater accumulates.  In this particular situation, the home was built in a flat valley with a rolling hill behind it.  The hill directs groundwater to the valley area and the water accumulates below the home's basement, then seeps into the basement through the seam between the wall and floor.

Solution

The Healthy Spaces installed a custom Waterguard system into the basement, CleanSpace wall product on the walls, and a TripleSafe sump pump and discharge system.  The Waterguard system was installed with two easy access viewing and cleaning ports to allow for easy maintenance in the years to come.  The best part of the Waterguard system is that it won't clog or get filled with debris because it sits on the foundation footer, rather than in the mud beneath the footer.  

The CleanSpace wall system will capture the water vapor and any wall moisture and direct it into the Waterguard system through the wall flange on the Waterguard.  From there, the water will be directed into the TripleSafe sump pump system and removed from the basement through a rigid discharge line.
