Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Eliminating Water Problems in Wausaukee, WI

Wednesday, April 15th, 2020 by Tom Wardlow


This home in Wausaukee, WI had all kinds of water issues that were causing endless problems for the homeowners.  They needed a comprehensive system in place that would collect and discharge the water coming into their home a safe distance away, and also needed to be sure the cold months wouldn't compromise whatever system that was.  


To give these homeowners piece of mind, Sure-Dry Basement Systems 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!

To ensure the water being pumped by the TripleSafe™ Sump Pump was discharging a safe distance from the home, Sure-Dry installed buried discharge lines to ensure that the water was draining far enough away so that it wouldn't find its way back toward the home.  

To ensure this system continues to work properly even in the frozen months, Sure-Dry installed their IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged.
