In this video, Joe Rusk explains that one of main reasons for foundation drainage failure resides in the fact that conventional drainage systems- whether interior or exterior- are buried in dirt, surrounded by a bed of gravel. Over time, two things usually happen with these systems — silt gets into the drainage pipes and clogs it, or mud clogs the bed of gravel making it difficult for the water to reach the pipe. AquaGuard Foundation Solutions installs the WaterGuard system, which is designed to sit under the basement floor but on top of the footing, away from the mud zone. Just like conventional systems, the WaterGuard will intercept the water before it enters the basement, and at its most frequent entrance point: the joint between the walls and floor. The WaterGuard can be fitted with service ports and when periodically serviced, it will never clog, for as long as your house stands. That’s why we back it with a Transferable Lifetime Warranty! The water collected into the WaterGuard system is diverted to a sump pump system — and the AquaGuard offers several options, with or without a battery operated backup pump, including the patented, award-winning TripleSafe system, with two backup batteries. The TripleSafe is simply the best sump pump system your money can buy, guaranteed to reduce the odds of a basement flood to statistical insignificance.
