    Installing a SuperSump Plus in a Colonial Beach, VA Basement

    This basement in Colonial Beach was having issues with infiltrating water. We created a hole to fit our SuperSump Plus system in connection with the WaterGuard drainage system. This efficient sump pump basin contains a cast iron 1/3 horsepower Zoller pump, a WaterWatch alarm system, a CleanPump sump pump stand, and an airtight lid. Any water directed to this sump system is then drained out of the home via hose line and LawnScape to a predetermined area on the property away from the foundation. 

  • Sealing Off Moisture from a Colonial Beach, VA Basement

    Sealing Off Moisture from a Colonial Beach, VA Basement

    Moisture was seeping through the porous foundation walls of this basement in Colonial Beach. We installed a durable 20-mil CleanSpace vapor barrier over these basement walls, which will help to collect any moisture seeping through the walls and direct it to the Water Guard XL drainage system. The CleanSpace vapor barrier acts as a barrier between the usable basement space and the outside influences.

  • Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump

    Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump

    This homeowner needed a new sump pump installed as part of a basement waterproofing system. Their old one was an open pit, that allowed odors and moisture to rise into the basement and be pulled up into the living space. 

     

    Their new pump is a large basin that houses a 1/3hp pump covered with an air-tight lid. The system has a float on top allowing for water to enter if a leak occurs from above, and the basin is large enough that if the homeowner, later feels a need to add a pump or battery backup system, they can do so without having to re-dig the hole or replace the basin. A clean pump stand keeps the sump out of any grime, grit, and sediment that may collect in the bottom of the basin to prevent clogs.

Why does my basement get wet?

Basement leaks can often be mysterious and seem unexplainable. How could your basement be leaking without heavy rains or standing water? Unfortunately, this is because there's actually a variety of ways for water to seep into your basement.

The Clay Bowl Effect

After your foundation is laid, the area around your foundation will be refilled with soil. However, this soil is generally far less dense than the undisturbed soil around it. This allows water to collect in the soil around your foundation. As this water builds up it will begin to pressure your foundation walls and, eventually, cause cracks.

Hydrostatic Pressure

When water soaks the loose soil around your foundations the soil will start to expand. As the soil expands it will push outwards, straight into your foundation walls. This steadily increasing pressure will start to cause cracks and then water will flow into your home through these cracks.
