Our cellar waterproofing options also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable merchandise is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC release line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team into the sump basin. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump options that may be installed into precisely the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water stream. We then put in Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board in the cove area in which the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and over the trench. It raises water drainage and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. After the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Reston solutions may also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria development. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest elevated.
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we only use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation area marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may be sure the stability of your base is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be essential to execute the digging.
After the base walls have been excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and mended before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same 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. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process.
