If the walls do leak the water will run down behind that panel and into our system but the homeowner does not see any of that water.
it doesn’t nothing in, the basement gets wet and it works way better than a coating because it can never come off of the wall once the wall panels are in place.
it’s time to install what is the heart of the system.
These plastic drains will collect any incoming water and channel it to the sump.
The sections are laid end-to-end and connect it to molded corner pieces.
The drain in front of the door incorporates an open grate so that water can flow in from the top.
Next the sump liner is dropped into position, the drain is laid in place behind it and a tee connector is installed.
A short section of PVC pipe connects the drain to the sump, the sub covers are set in place temporarily and crushed rock is used to fill the space between the liner and the well.
The covers of course prevent the run from spilling inside then, the space between the drain and the edge of the trench is also filled with crushed rock.
if the drain is the core of the system, the pump is the muscle actually there is not just one pump but three.
We have backup sump pump systems.
