Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Internal French Drain in Trafford
Ron and Debrah called upon Keystone Basement Systems to help them with their wet basement. They knew they had to have the help of a true professional as this was not some do-it-yourself project. Keystone sent out Jeff Martello to not only meet with them to go over the issue but to also conduct a very detailed inspection of the said problem area. The field inspector knows that he must come up with the utmost accurate plan to get this home fixed and dry again so he quickly jumped into his inspection. The inspection was conducted by performing several tasks, one of which was a moisture test. The tests and measurements that were taken will ensure that the plan in which the field inspector comes up with will be successful The plan was to install a 140-foot-long internal drainage system as well as a buried discharge line, it also included a Triplesafe sump pump. The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. The field inspector then met with the homeowners again to go over the plan which he came up with, making sure to answer all of their questions and go over all of their concerns. Ron and Debrah were very happy with the plan and so the field inspector returned to the office and scheduled them out for installation.
Upon the day of installation, the foreman and his crew promptly showed up for their scheduled appointment, and as the foreman then met with Ron and Debrah the crew got to work unloading the ruck and preparing for the day. The foreman went over what was going to take place with the couple as the crew got right to work installing the buried line for the discharge line. The internal drainage system was then installed, the crew was extra careful to make sure the clean-out was attached, as this will help with servicing the equipment. The crew made sure to clean up after the completion of installation and this too made the homeowners very happy. The overly thrilled homeowners then proceeded to leave Keystone a great 5-star review.
