A family in Howards Grove, WI was sick of having to deal with water damaging their belongings in their basement. They decided it was time to call some experts and have them take a look. They immediately got on the phone and gave Sure-Dry a call.
In just a couple days our System Design Specialist Mike Collison came out and took a look at their situation. He concluded that it would be best to have our WaterGuard System installed. Which our WaterGuard System collects water inside of the wall and takes it back outside, therefore never letting the water enter through your walls, which then causes the damage. Also, with a huge bonus of our WaterGuard System being under their concrete floor, these homeowners reluctantly won't have to worry about some big machine or product laying around in their basement getting in the way.
The homeowners excited about solving their water issues realized they didn't like the way their walls looked because of the damage that had already been but our crew had an easy answer for them. We installed our CleanSpace Wall System which blocks out all water but also gives their wall a new, bright, clean look to them again.

The basement of this home in Random Lake, WI had water coming into the basement from between the foundation walls and footing. With nothing in place to catch and drain the water, and no sump pump to drain the water out and away from the house, the water coming in was pooling in the basement, causing damage to the carpeting.
To catch the water coming in, Sure-Dry Basement Systems installed their WaterGuard® system. The WaterGuard® system collects water that seeps through basement walls and drains it to your sump pump. The system installs quickly and has a clean finished appearance, meaning you don't have to worry about having an unsightly drain around the basement.
To discharge the water being collected by the WaterGuard system, Sure-Dry installed their SuperSump® Premier Pump System. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement. The SuperSump® can also be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
