Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Hollis Center, ME - WaterGuard & SuperSump Installation
A wet basement is not an easy problem for any typical homeowner to solve on their own. That’s why this homeowner came to TC Hafford Basement Systems!
The water entering this particular basement through a phenomenon known as hydrostatic pressure. The water builds up in the surrounding soil from rain, and this build up forces the water into wherever it can fit. This is how it is forced through tiny cracks in the basement floor. To prevent this, we installed 100 feet of WaterGuard piping around the basement floor. These pipes capture the water as it travels through the concrete, guiding it to the sump before it ever reaches the surface.
We then needed to install a pump into the sump in order to remove the water. We installed a SuperSump sump pump, with an UltraSump attachment. The SuperSump is able to pump up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour. This should be more than enough to keep this basement water-free. The UltraSump is a backup battery for the SuperSump, allowing it to continue pumping without power for 11,000 gallons! The water is pumped out through a PVC discharge line, and carried a safe distance from the home before it exits into the soil.
These newly installed systems should be more than enough to maintain a dry basement for this homeowner. WaterGuard will carry away the moisture before it even enters the interior of the basement!
