This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also known as drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump with a 1-” PVC release line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump options that may be installed into 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. We then install Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove place where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It increases water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Harford County solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. For a cleaner appearance and for walls with a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be set up. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall areas with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest high. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.

Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane can be set up on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable watertight barrier. Before backfilling the surface, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the process.
