Deborah had 3 Sump Pumps (one not working) and an encapsulation but was still getting plenty of water in her crawl space.
Basement & Radon Solutions, BRS Pros started by replacing all 3 of the Sump Pumps in the crawl space. Then, we installed a Hydra-Channel (dewatering system). A clean trench was dug along the full interior perimeter of the crawl space foundation. The Hydra-Channel was installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions adjacent to the footing. The Hydra-Channel engineered fusion welded high strength polyethylene water system will remove storm water up to 70% faster than a pipe and stone system, allowing water to flow freely to the in-ground sealed sump pump/basin. The Hydra-Channel system will carry a five year transferable warranty to prevent water on top of the ground liner. We also installed new 15 mil our premium (walk on, store on) 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced ground liner. The premium ground liner will be nailed/sealed approximately 6 to 12″ above the ground to the foundation wall. 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to our liner. Lastly, we installed a Hygrometer. This is a Remote Temperature and Relative Humidity Meter stand alone unit with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in Deborah your crawl space to give her an accurate reading of relative humidity. This product will also help her monitor the effective humidity of the dehumidifier in the crawl space. It was a pleasure helping Deborah make her home happy, healthy, and safe!”
