BRS Pros helped Doug and here are some steps we took…
Dewatering – A clean trench was dug adjacent to the foundation footing along the front and right interior perimeter foundation walls, the hydra-channel was installed according to manufacture’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, it will allow water to flow freely to the in-ground sealed sump pump/basin located in the right interior of the crawlspace. The Hydra-Channel system will carry a five year transferable warranty.
Sump Pump – Installed our “Single Pump System” with a removable (flush with floor) lid covered with stone in the right front corner of the crawlspace (as looking at the front door). The system includes 1/3 HP cast iron primary pump with dual float cage that protects debris from the float. Included is a deluxe controller that monitors the pump and power conditions and will sound an alarm if problems are detected or a high water warning in the sump. Additionally, it activates the pump weekly to exercise and extend the pumps life.
It was a pleasure helping Doug make his home happy, healthy & safe!
