Concrete is porous, water will seep in through the water and floors
Existing Sump Hole
The existing sump hole was a bucket in the floor
The trench for the WaterGuard is dug
WaterGuard and CleanSpace
The WaterGuard is put in place in the trench and the CleanSpace Wall is tucked into the flange of the WaterGuard.
The WaterGuard is covered with crushed stone and drainage matting before being concreted.
The CleanSpace Wall is a vapor barrier that will protect the basement from wall seepage. It is safe to put walls up over the CleanSpace wall.
The discharge line was dug because of unseasonably warm temperatures for the winter!
