BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS
Carolina Basement Solutions takes pride in using only proven reliable products and systems that are designed to protect your basement and properly divert water. All of our waterproofing systems consist of products from Richtech Industries, an industry leader in waterproofing products. With our waterproofing systems, all incoming water is directed under the floor into a drainage system. Hydrostatic pressure on the walls is relieved by weep holes that are created. By placing the system beneath the floor slab, any hydrostatic pressure from under the foundation is also eliminated. Eliminating hydrostatic pressure is the key to preventing future water problems.
We offer a line of systems which are designed to best meet the need of your basement problems and best fit your budget. To ensure that your basement problems are properly put to rest, all of our waterproofing systems consist of the same critical components; a moisture barrier, a diverter, a drainage system, a sump pump, and a backup system.
- Moisture Barrier
Our moisture barrier consists of a durable non-porous product which is applied to the interior side of the basement / foundation wall. Our moisture barriers prevent all moisture from entering the interior of your basement. Moisture and dampness will continue to be found present within any basement that is waterproofed without a quality moisture barrier.
Our diverters are strategically installed to maintain open pathways to direct all water into our drainage system. The Polydrain diverters are designed to relieve hydrostatic pressure by facilitating the flow of water and eliminating resistance. Any waterproofing systems without diverters are easily overwhelmed when heavy rainfall occurs, causing failure of the system.
- Drainage System
Our drainage system is placed under the floor of basements with the purpose of collecting and discharging all storm water from the basement. A proper drainage system that can accommodate a high volume of water is crucial to the effectiveness of a waterproofing system. An undersized drainage system would not be capable of handling the demands in the event of a heavy rainfall or flooding.
- Sump Pump
The sump pump is one of the most important components of an effective waterproofing system. We offer a top of the line energy efficient sump pump that is extremely reliable and designed to last even under the most extreme conditions. Our PitBoss sump pump is extremely quiet and powerful enough to pump thousands of gallons per hour.
- Battery Backup
We also offer an optional battery backup PumpSpy System. During a big storm is when you need your sump pump the most. What happens when the power goes out? Our battery backup will provide you with that needed peace of mind. Our PumpSpy System monitors the main sump pump and provides a complete backup system 24 hours a day. PumpSpy also tests your system 3 times a week to ensure everything is working properly. The PumpSpy allows the ability to track and monitor your sump pump through an IOS APP or ANDROID APP.
