Our cellar waterproofing solutions also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable merchandise is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also known as drain tile is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC discharge line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump options which can be installed into the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we install Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board in the cove place in which the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and above the trench. It increases water drainage and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile system. Following the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Arnold solutions can also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest high. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings accessible.

After evaluation by our inspection team the best solution may be 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. We only use professional grade stuff for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks group to have the excavation place marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can be sure that the stability of your base is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy gear will be essential to perform the digging.
Following the base walls are excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before applying the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are critical in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane ought to be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure.
