Scott contacted us because during heavy rains, water comes in at the base of the walls in 2-3 areas (different walls/corners). It has also come up through the floor.
Basement & Radon Solutions did quite a bit of work for Scott. This is how it went…1. We started by installing our Hydra-Channel dewatering system in Scott’s crawl space. A clean trench was dug along the left and front interior walls of the crawl space foundation. 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 does carry a five year transferable warranty. The Hydra-Channel is connected to the Sump Pump.2. We installed out Radon Ready System. A 4 suction pipe installed below radon barrier/ground liner. In the event the home is tested for radon in the future and found to be elevated, this component will be used with the additional exterior radon system to correct radon levels.3. Then, we installed our 9-mil white 100% woven reinforced ground liner on the foundation walls. The wall liner was mechanically fastened/sealed to the foundation walls.4. We also installed our 15 mil ground liner over the Radon Ready System. Our Premium (walk on, store on) 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced ground liner was nailed 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. This product will not off gas (known on Google as “crawlspace cat urine odor”, go ahead and check it out), we guarantee it!! Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to our liner.5. We added a dehumidifier to the crawl space. We added an Aprilaire 1850. The Model 1850 removes up to 95 pints (11 7/8 gallons) of moisture per day! Proudly made in USA and carries a five year manufacturer’s warranty. It was a pleasure to help Scott make his new addition happy, healthy, and safe!”
