This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also called drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by 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 extra protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed in the exact 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 technology drainage board in the cove place where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and over the trench. It raises water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Harford County solutions may also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall areas with higher water content, like corners, problem areas or old construction, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest high.
After evaluation by our inspection team the ideal solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We only use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation place marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may rest assured that the stability of your base is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be necessary to execute the digging.
Following the base walls are excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the procedure. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks team to business the loose soil around the house ‘s base.
