Our cellar waterproofing options also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain tile is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump options that can be installed into precisely the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove place where the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and over the trench. It increases water and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Arnold Basement Waterproofing solutions can also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, like corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest high.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our review team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we only use professional grade stuff with this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can rest assured the stability of your base is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be essential to execute the digging.
Following the base walls have been excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks staff to firm the loose soil around the home’s base.
