For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed into precisely the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water stream. We then put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove area in which the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and over the trench. It increases water drainage and directs intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system.

Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the application of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day that the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure.
