One of the most significant challenges our experts see on a daily basis are homes with monolithic floors.
Normally, foundations are built in three pieces -- the floor, the walls, and the foundation footing. In the case of monolithic floors, there are just two pieces, as the floor and footing are poured as just one piece.
As a result, the edges of these floors are extremely thick, and jackhammering them is labor-intensive and creates a lot of dust!
We address this challenge by installing our DryTrak® Drain Pipe System. This is a baseboard drain that is permanently epoxied above the floor (and above the mud sitting below the floor) -- with no jackhammering.
The DryTrak® System is also a great option for unusually thick concrete slab floors. Like monolithic floors, jackhammering through can mean a lot of work and dust.
If you have a block wall foundation, then there is a second challenge to deal with. The open cavities in each block are susceptible to filling with water -- which then seeps in through the walls.
We eliminate this water source by drilling a "weep hole" in each block. The water then pours through these holes and directly into the drain pipe.
The drain pipe is epoxied directly to the floor, leaving a slight opening along the top to collect water leaking in from the walls. Thus, your home is waterproofed without jackhammering!
Water can flood into a basement from many different locations along the walls. At American Waterworks, we have these solutions:
Many of our wall products double as an aesthetic or insular upgrade. Each of our wall drainage systems can be tucked into your DryTrak® Drain Pipe System so that water leaking from your walls is then directed to your sump pump system.
The DryTrak® Drain Pipe System provides you with a simple, common-sense solution that helps you to avoid an otherwise messy and time-consuming installation.
