Basement Waterproofing...Pelican Rapids, MN

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 by Eric Rysdam

Challenge

A Pelican Rapids, MN homeowner called Innovative when they experienced water issues in their home’s basement. When it was wet outside, water seeped in through the foundation walls and wrecked the carpet. Because of the seepage problem, it was not possible for the homeowner to enjoy their basement as much as they could a dry basement. The water threatened to damage their property, so the space could not be safely used for storage, and it made a damp, uncomfortable extra living space.

After a thorough inspection, the Innovative Basement Authority specialist determined which walls were leaking and came up with a solution.

Solution

The installation crew removed some of the basement’s sheet rock and rolled back the carpet to get access to the leaky walls and basement floor so that they could install a new drain system. The home had a monolithic foundation, meaning the floor and footing were poured as one piece. Because of the monolithic foundation, the best drain for this home was the Monolithic Floor Drain.

This system is specially designed to waterproof concrete foundation walls. It does not allow debris to pass through to collect in the system, so there is little chance that it will clog and back up. You can rest assured that this Drainage System is the ideal solution for homeowners with a wet basement on a monolithic foundation. Better yet, it’s installed without damage to the foundation or footing.

Team Innovative also installed a SafeDri ProX pump to pump out the water that collects in the drainage system. The SafeDri ProX is a long-lasting and affordable sump pump option that will ensure a dry basement for years to come. The homeowner was very happy with the effort Innovative Basement Authority put into waterproofing his basement, and he was pleased that it was a quick, non-intrusive job.
