While they have lived in their house for many years, longtime homeowners in Bucyrus, OH, wanted to be sure they had a trustworthy waterproofing system in their basement. They were concerned with moisture in the basement and the rest of the house, and they wondered how efficient the existing system really was.
After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners wanted to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of their home’s waterproofing system. He noted that the current sump pump system appeared to be outdated and was starting to show signs of failure. Before they had to deal with a flood situation, our inspector recommended upgrading their waterproofing system to more reliable products.
The homeowners agreed with the assessment, and they were eager for Foreman Milton Castro and his crew to complete this project. We installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system and SuperSump sump pump in the basement.
WaterGuard is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SuperSump to be pumped out of the basement and away from the home. The SuperSump features a powerful ½ hp pump that can pump more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The SuperSump is one of the many reliable sump pump systems we offer, and we installed this system in the homeowners’ basement in the larger sump liner used for the TripleSafe system to allow for easy future upgrades.
The owners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be protected by these trustworthy repairs.
