Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Water Control in Saint Cloud, WI

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020 by Tom Wardlow

Challenge

The basement of this home in Saint Cloud, WI had major water issues.  Water was finding its way into the basement between the foundation walls and footing, and was also coming through the floor itself due to the hydrostatic pressure around the home's foundation.  With no system in place to collect the water coming in, and with no sump pump to drain and discharge the water away from the home, the water was pooling on the basement floor, causing damage to the items the homeowners had stored in the basement.  

Solution

To collect the water coming into the basement from between the footing and foundation walls, Sure-Dry 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 TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System.  The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
