Drying Wet Basements with an
Interior Basement Drain System!
Having a wet basement need no longer be a problem. We can eliminate your problem by installing an interior drain. Although we can not stop the water table from rising, our system catches it before it has a chance to reach the basement floor and leads it off to the sump pump.
The principle of the system is as follows:
As the water rises due to the changing height of your water table, it reaches the height of the foundation footing and the basement floor.
The joint where your basement floor and foundation meet is the point where the water problem is most likely to occur.
We install a drain system consisting of 4" perforated pipe surrounded by 3/4" washed stone which catches the water before it has a chance to reach the basement floor.
The water is lead to the sump pump via the system and pumped out through a discharge pipe.
You will now have a dry basement floor and need never be aware of water your floor.
You may also notice the basement dampness subside as well due to the dropping of the water table

We have installed these for three generations and can design one to suit your needs. Some basements may need a full interior drain system, while other situations may need only a partial drain. As each basement condition is different, we'll be happy to discuss your basements particular needs and provide you with a FREE ESTIMATE.
