BRS Pros helped Guy and here are some steps we took…
Fast Drain – Installed our FastDrain sub-floor dewatering system as estimated along the front, left and rear foundation walls of the basement. Approximately 8″ of concrete floor and soil was removed to create a trench. Washed stone and the FastDrain system were installed to deliver water to the FastSump system. New concrete was placed back and finished. This system will de-water the ground below the slab and control the flow to the sump pump system.
Single Sump Pump – Installed our “Sump System” with a removable (flush with floor) lid covered with stone in the rear wall of the basement. The system includes 1/3 HP cast iron primary pump with dual float cage that protects debris from 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.
Dual Sump Pump – Installed our PS-C33 Combination Backup and Primary Pump “Sump System” with a removable (flush with floor) lid covered with stone in the left front corner of basement. • Automatically switches to battery power when AC fails • Unique monitoring controller detects irregularities, sounds an alarm, and pinpoints problems and solutions on control panel • Primary pump with energy efficient PSC motor is continuous duty rated and water cooled • Primary pump controller allows for adjustable pump run time and exercises pump weekly to extend pump life • Dual float switches provide dependable activation for both primary and backup pumps • Backup will assist primary pump if excessive amounts of water are entering the sump • Maintains and recharges battery automatically • Alarm can be silenced during a power outage • Designed for use with wet cell or AGM / maintenance free batteries.
Vapor Barrier – Installed our 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced wall liner above the installed FastDrain system. Wall liner was mechanically fastened with nails designed for foundation walls to within 6″ of the top of the crawlspace foundation wall to provide a complete future termite inspection unless indicated elsewhere. Protects against moisture, mold, mildew, humidity and wall leaks. Moisture/water behind this anti-bacterial wall liner drains into the FastDrain system. Mechanically fastening wall liner is a permanent solution opposed to just caulk or tape which will result in future maintenance or failure of the system.
It was a pleasure helping Guy make his home happy, healthy & safe again!
