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 which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC release line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed in the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain line trench to aide in water flow. Then we 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 above the trench. It raises water drainage and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Severna Park solutions may also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest high.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After evaluation by our review team the ideal solution is to waterproof your basement in the outside. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we only use professional grade materials for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation area marked for 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 exactly what heavy equipment will be essential to execute the digging.
Following the foundation walls have been excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight 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 process.
