Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Water Protection in Egg Harbor, WI

Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 by Tom Wardlow

Challenge

The basement of this home in Egg Harbor, WI had a water problem.  Hydrostatic pressure from the wet soil surrounding the home's foundation was creating stair-step cracks in the home's block foundation walls, and water began to seep into the basement through these cracks.  

These homeowners were in need of a solution that would collect the water coming in through the walls and a system that would drain the water out and away from the home.  

Solution

To catch the water coming in through the walls to prevent future water pooling or flooding, Sure-Dry Basement Systems installed their DryTrak® System.  This system installs over the top of the floor, eliminating the need for excessive excavation.

DryTrak® provides the same protection and drainage for water seeping through foundation walls, while also giving the clean, finished appearance of a baseboard. The drain is secured to the floor with only a slight opening at the top, allowing water to flow in and drain to your sump pump. DryTrak® comes with a written warranty.

In order to discharge the water being collected by the DryTrak a safe distance from the home, 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!
