This flexible, lightweight renewable merchandise is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also called drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices which may 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 put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove area in which the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and over the trench. It increases water and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. After the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Lutherville solutions may also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria development. For wall areas with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest high. Additionally, there are commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings accessible.
After evaluation by our review team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement from the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. We simply use professional grade stuff for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation area marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may rest assured the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be essential to execute the digging.

After the foundation walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and mended before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the procedure. After the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped from the 20000 Leaks team to firm the loose soil around the home’s foundation.
