Wet Basement in York Harbor, ME Dried & Protected with SaniDry Installation
When this couple living in York Harbor, ME began to have problems with water collecting in their basement, they were unsure how to keep it from leaking in. Looking for a solution, they soon heard from a friend that TC Hafford Basement Systems could solve their problem. They called us to set up their free estimate and met with our sales rep. soon after. Once the homeowners heard their options, they hired us to get started right away.
When our installation crew arrived at the home later, they began by installing a SmartSump in the floor of the basement. This will take in the water collecting in the space and force it out of the home through a discharge line. Next, a SaniDry XP dehumidifier was installed to remove the moisture build up in the atmosphere of the basement. The SaniDry will take in the damp air surrounding itself, separating the moisture from it and distributing it back into the basement once dried. The water pulled from the air is passed directly to the SmartSump to be removed from the home.
Outside the home, two additions were made to the discharge line to better protect the home from moisture damage. The first addition was an IceGuard pipe segment attached to the line just beyond where it leaves the home. The IceGuard has upward facing holes built into itself, that allow for water blocked by ice to exit the line if it begins to flow back up the pipes. This prevents backups into the home. Finally, the water will flow out of the line through the grate of a LawnScape discharge port. The grate will keep larger debris from entering the line and causing long-lasting blockages.
With these new additions to their home installed, this homeowner now no longer suffers from a wet, flooding basement. Their new SaniDry & sump system will keep the basement below their home dry for years to come!
