Our cellar waterproofing options also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable merchandise is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also known as drain tile is joined to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump with a 1-” PVC discharge line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team into the sump basin. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed in the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water flow. We then install Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove place in which the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and above 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 commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Chevy Chase solutions may also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be installed complete wall or chest elevated.
