Perimeter is Cleared for Waterguard Installation in Fort Branch
In this photo, you can see that the installation crew has already started the first step of the waterguard installation--chipped away the concrete floor around the perimeter of the basement.
Perimeter Preparation for Waterguard Close up in Fort Branch
One of the benefits of the Waterguard system is the wall flange feature. If water seeps from the pipes above, the wall flange can capture the water and direct it into the Waterguard system for removal. The Wall flange is a great feature because it doesn't leave a large gap at the edge of the floor, where dirt and debris can collect and clog the flange.
Perimeter is excavated and ready for Waterguard
Here, you can see the exposed footer and the dirt below the basement floor. The Waterguard system is designed to sit on the footer, so that it doesn't sit in the dirt and clog with mud. Most standard pipe systems that sit in the soil clog over time.
Sump Pit Prepared in Fort Branch
In this picture, you can see the area where the sump pump will be installed. The Waterguard system will intercept water at the perimeter and direct it toward the SuperSump, where it will then be directed to the drainage line and pumped out of the basement.
Waterguard Ready to be Installed
Here is the cleaned and prepped trench for the Waterguard installation. What is hard to see is that the trench is tilted ever so slightly to drain the water toward the sump pump. This keeps the water flowing smoothly toward the pump and being removed quickly. It keeps the basement drier too!
Sump Pump Basket in Place in Fort Branch Basement
Here, you can see where the SuperSump basket has been placed in the pit. This allows technicians to make sure that they have the Waterguard system correctly placed, the pump basket buried deep enough.
Cleanspace installed on Walls in Fort Branch
In this system, the homeowner elected to use our patented CleanSpace product to line the walls. This will help direct the water from the walls into the Waterguard system and down to the sump pump. This basement is technically classified as a cellar (or non-livable space) and is only 5' tall.
Overview of Cleanspace on Walls
In this shot, you can see the furnace unit in this cellar. The Cleanspace and Waterguard will help the HVAC system run more efficiently and save the homeowners money on heating and cooling.
Overview of Finished Installation of SuperSump and Waterguard in Basement
In this picture, you can see the finished installation with the CleanSpace on the walls, the super sump in the foreground, and the waterguard perimeter drain channels. With this system, the homeowners are completely protected from water intrusion from the perimeter of the basement, the walls, and any plumbing leaks.
