    Customer Testimonial

              Thank you American Waterworks for your excellent installation of our basement system! Over the last 17 years we have dealt with water in our basement on an on/off basis and always hated it when we had to clean up water and move or throw stuff away. You installed our system last summer and I am sleeping so much better and smile every time I hear the pump run - sending water outside! What a Blessing your organization is!

    Marvin L. in Bangor, WI was tired of dealing with the water seeping into his basement. It was beginning to cause him stress, and he wanted a permanent solution. He contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to evaluate the situation and propose the best, cost-effective solution for his home. 

    Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew began the waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Next, they installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump, which is backed by three levels of protection. Then, the crew installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls and our SaniDry dehumidifier to take care of any humidity. With our CleanSpace installed, any water seepage coming through the wall will be directed down into the drainage system. Marvin is happy with the results and glad he chose a permanent solution for his home!

    Dan B. in La Crosse, WI contacted American Waterworks after being referred to us by a previous satisfied customer. Water had been leaking into the basement for years, and he was ready to contact a professional. We sent one of our Design Specialists to meet with Dan, inspect his home, and propose a customized plan to fit his needs. 

    Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew began the waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and through the middle of the floor to create a trench for the 124 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system and for the feed line. Next, they installed our TripleSafe sump pump. Then, they installed spray foam in the rim joists and a combination of our ZenWall and Foamax Insulated Panels on the walls for the ultimate transformation and energy bill savings. Lastly, the crew installed our SaniDry dehumidier to take care of any humidity. Dan also chose to replace his basement windows with our EverLast Windows with our WellDuct System for a cleaner and more updated look and to drain any leaking water into the perimeter WaterGuard system. The combination of these waterproofing products restored Dan’s basement, and he is glad he chose a permanent solution for his home!

    Tammy E. in Houston, MN had water seeping into her basement through cracks in the floor. She also noticed a foul smell and some rust-colored stains. She contacted American Waterworks, and we sent our Design Specialist, Mike Radosevich, to her home to evaluate her situation. He discovered that Tammy had a buildup of iron ochre in her old sump pump. He explained that it is not a known health hazard but can quickly clog a French drain system. He presented her with our WaterGuard IOS Perimeter Drain Channel, which is ideal for managing this problem. Tammy was impressed with Mike’s presentation and our products and moved forward with an installation date. 

    Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew were able to permanently waterproof Tammy’s basement by installing 209 feet of our WaterGuard IOS System. The wide-open design of the drain helps it resist clogs, while a removable lid allows for easy access and maintenance. Then, the crew installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump. The WaterGuard properly drains water to the sump pump and from there, the water is pumped through the discharge line and expelled from the home. Tammy was impressed with the installation, and is happy knowing that her problem is solved and her basement is dry!
