A homeowner in Detroit Lakes, MN had water leaking into their basement, making them feel uncomfortable living in their own home. They called American Waterworks and requested a FREE Estimate. Our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson, went to their home to inspect the basement and come up with a solution to their problem. The homeowner was confident with Chad's plan, so they went ahead with the project. 

Our Foreman, Brian Colliton, and his production team began the project by forming a trench around the concrete perimeter of the basement floor with a jackhammer. Our team installed our WaterGuard System in the trench, which acts as an underground drain and transports water waste to the sump pump. Next, our team installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump in the corner of the basement, which solves all three water problems in one system and triples the protection. To complete the project, our team covered the open gaps with rock and replaced the concrete. The homeowner was thrilled with the work and loved watching the transformation!

Our Foreman, Ryan Loe, and his production team began the project by breaking out the concrete around his pre-existing sump pump and replaced it with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Our TripleSafe is the best sump pump that we provide for homeowners, it comes with a battery back-up, and it solves all three water problems in one system. To complete the project, our team covered the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over it. Dustin was happy with the repairs and loved the new view under his staircase!

Mark M. of Detroit Lakes, MN had water leaking from his crawl space walls and floor, causing him to worry about water moisture and humidity problems in his home. He called American Waterworks to schedule a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Richie Noreen. Richie went to his home, inspected his crawl space, and came up with a solution that worked for him and his budget. Mark got all of his questions answered about the encaspulation process, so he went ahead with the project and scheduled an installation date. 

Our Foreman, Corey Tollefson, and his production team began the project by applying 1,436 feet of drainage matting on the floor of Mark's crawl space. Our drainage matting is made to direct the water flooding the crawl space to the perimeter crawl space drain and sump pump system. Next, our team installed 2,288 feet of our CleanSpace Encapuslation Vapor Barrier. Our vapor barrier is used to transform the crawl space into a dry, clean, and energy-efficient part of the home. Along with protection from mold and rot, a dry crawl space will also be inhospitable to termites, cockroaches, ants, crickets, and many other pests that need excess moisture to survive.
