Sub-floor Dual Pressure Relief Drainage System

The "WATERSEAL" Sub-floor Dual Pressure Relief Drainage System:

    Drainage Trench

    drainage trench When installing the DPR Drainage system, the basement floor is typically opened up approximately 14 to 16 inches from the wall.

    The loose concrete is removed and the drainage trench is dug alongside the footing.

    All debris are removed from the basement and hauled away to a concrete recycling plant.

Basement Trench

    Structural Floor Spacer

    structural floor spacer When there is a hot water heater, furnace or other obstruction present, we typically leave the section of the floor intact below it and that is referred to as a "structural floor spacer".

    This eliminates the need to have such obstructions temporarily removed, saving you unnecessary expense.

Cinderblock Moisture Relief

    Cinderblock Can Hold 2-3 Times it's Weight in Water.

    Cinderblock Moisture Relief Cinderblock foundations are very porous, a single cinderblock can hold 2 to 3 times it's weight in water!

    Homeowners who have applied wall paints and sealants, often times unknowingly exacerbate the situation by creating a dam effect.

    Elevated moisture levels in the block wall lead to unwanted mold and mildew growth as well as efflorescence - a white powdery substance that is visible on the wall.

Cinderblock Water Retention

    Cinderblock Weep Holes

    Cinderblock Water Retention With cinderblock foundations, weep holes are drilled into each hollow core of the first course of block to release any water that may be holding in the wall cavities.

    These weep holes also prevent against any future water retention in the block wall.

Corrugated Drain Tube

    Perforated - Corrugated Drain Tile

    Corrugated Drain Tube We only install perforated - corrugated drain tile that is wrapped in a commercial grade filtration material to prevent fine sediments from clogging your system over time.

Drainage and Moisture Protection

    Dura-Wall Panels

    Drainage and Moisture Protection With a cinderblock or stone foundation we install our Dura-Wall Panels, typically at a height of 24 inches. Dura-Wall panels are made of a waterproof plastic and are neatly attached to the wall with white matching rivets and joined together with matching connectors and corner pieces.

    These panels provide your wall with unmatched drainage and moisture protection.

Plastic Vapor Barrier

    Polymeric Plastic Drain Board

    polymeric plastic drain board Prior to re-cementing your floor we install a black dimpled polymeric plastic drain board which protects the weep holes and a 6 mil. plastic vapor barrier over the stone base as shown in the adjacent picture.

    We add a vinyl & acrylic bonding additive to the cement mix which enhances the tensile strength and the adhesion of the new cement to your existing floor.

Oil Tank Drainage Field
