Wet Basement Woes: Solved!

Friday, June 20th, 2014 by Cassandra Santiago

Basements take up a large amount of square footage in your home that can be used for storage or recreation. A playroom for the kids, a man cave, or simply an organized laundry room can be a big plus in a busy home. But if the basement turns into a monster you have to tame every time it rains, it is just wasted space.  Aside from preventing your family from using this valuable space, damp basements can be a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.

WaterGuard System

Traditional French Drains often fail a homeowner. They collect debris, clog, and overflow. Quality 1st Basement Systems has solved this problem with the WaterGuard System, a specifically designed perimeter piping system engineered to be the most efficient drainage system for any basement waterproofing. WaterGuard is designed not to clog, does not rely of filter fabric, and has a big drain outlet to the sump; everything needed to let the drainage system work at top efficiency.


TripleSafe Sump Pump

TripleSafe Sump Pump System

Forget the old hole-in-the-ground sump pump. They’re outdated, ugly, and unable to keep up with the water problems during heavy rains. If the power goes out you’re left with pump failure and stuck mopping up the basement…again! Quality 1st Basement Systems has a better way to pump that moisture out of the basement.

The TripleSafeSump Pump is a top-of-the-line sump pump that is actually three sump pumps in one. This adds to the efficiency and reliability of the waterproofing system. The first pump in the exclusive TripleSafe Sump Pump is a high-quality Zoeller 1/3 hp pump and does the biggest share of the work to remove the water from the basement. Pump 2 is a Zoeller ½ hp pump that’s set a bit higher in the sump hole and turns on in the event that the first pump either fails or can’t keep up with the flow of water. The 3rd pump is an “UltraSump” DC (battery operated) pump that kicks in if the power goes out. This amazing 3 pump system insures the sump pump will keep functioning no matter how heavy it rains.


IceGuard System

The third line of defense against that leaky basement is the IceGuard discharge line. The WaterGuard Drainage System and TripleSafe Sump Pump will get the water out of your basement, but those who live in the cold northern states know how quickly snow and ice can pile up to freeze the lines. The IceGuard System is engineered to eject water away from the exterior wall if the pipe freezes. This patented design will provide a way for the water to exit the pump even if the pipe outlet is buried under a foot of snow. It’s like extra insurance to keep your basement dry.

Together the WaterGuard Drainage System, the TripleSafe Sump Pump, and the IceGuard Discharge Line will work together to prevent water in your basement and give your family a dry living space that can be refinished for recreation or used for storage or an extra space for a workshop.
