Job completed for Mike D

Completion date: June 1, 2018

Customer type: Residential

Location: Falmouth, MA

Why did the customer contact us?

Customer has a house on the water and during heavy rain the water comes up close to the foundation.

What challenges did we face?

The creek bed rises to the point it hits the back walkout door for the basement. We had to split the pump discharges so if one area gets backed up the secondary pump can take over and pump the water to another part of the property.

Solutions provided:

We installed a custom level 1 Healthy Basement Certificate. This consisted of a full perimeter GrateDrain drainage system with a small strip of vapor barrier at the base of the wall. We also installed two high output 1/2hp pumps and split the discharges in two directions to maximize water flow. In front of the doorway we installed a surface drain to catch any water that might come through the door during a heavy rain storm.
