While they have lived in their house for a couple of years, homeowners in Boonville, IN, knew that water and excessive moisture in the crawl space was a problem. After receiving a ton of rain this year, they decided that they could no longer continue worrying and letting it affect their peace of minds.
After contacting Healthy Spaces for a free inspection, Design Specialist, Mike Rogers, performed a thorough inspection of their crawl space. Together they designed a system that would eliminate the water and completely seal their home off from the earth.
The Healthy Spaces team installed a TripleSafe pump system with 1/3hp cast iron primary pump, 1/2hp cast iron back-up pump, and an UltraSump battery back-up pumping system with charging/control box with alarm. We also installed IceGuard to prevent floods from clogged or frozen discharge lines.
Next, our team installed CleanSpace Drainage Matting under our CleanSpace vapor barrier. Installing Drainage Matting is important because the liner rests directly on the crawl space floor. Should the crawl space flood, water can be trapped underneath, stopping it from making it to the perimeter drain. The raised dimples on the Drainage Matting allows the water to have a channel underneath the crawl space liner. Which then directs the water flooding to the crawl space drain and sump pump system.
These Boonville, IN, homeowners are ecstatic that they now do not have to worry about their crawl space every time it rains.
