Basement Drainage Systems

Causes of Basement Leaks and Flooding

Leaky Basement

When excess water saturates the soil surrounding your home, it exerts immense pressure on the walls, akin to an overfilled water balloon. Inadequate drainage exacerbates the problem, causing the soil to swell and press against your foundation. Gradually, this pressure forces water into your basement through minuscule cracks and weak spots.

To safeguard your basement from such water intrusion, we recommend implementing a reliable drainage system. By effectively managing water buildup around your foundation, your risk of leaks significantly decreases. Additionally, our state-of-the-art sump pumps swiftly divert any collected water away from your home, ensuring efficient moisture removal. Trust the Sump Pump Geeks, experts in basement waterproofing, to provide top-notch solutions tailored to your needs. Schedule your comprehensive inspection today and let our highly trained, certified contractors shield your basement from potential water damage. 

The Problem with Clogged French Drains

French Drains, also known as footing drains, have been a popular solution for groundwater drainage for over a century. But let’s face it, they’re far from perfect. These drains can easily get clogged with mud, debris, and tiny particles, rendering them ineffective in keeping your basement dry. And when that happens, you’re left with basement leaks and even flooding. The traditional approach to unclogging French Drains involves costly and disruptive excavation, digging up tiles, and replacing them.

Is there a better way? Absolutely. Sump Pump Geeks offers an innovative solution that tackles water issues without the hassle: the GrateDrain Systems – an efficient and practical alternative to French Drains. 

Don’t settle for outdated methods that cause inconvenience and drain your wallet. Choose a smarter and more reliable solution for a dry and flood-free basement.

The Only Closed Interior Perimeter Drainage System in The U.S.

Open interior drainage systems, commonly installed by other waterproofing companies, allow water to enter and be collected by different types of drain tiles. However, the vast majority of the available interior drainage systems have an open configuration. Open drainage systems pose a significant health risk as radon gas, moisture, and other pollutants can seep into the basement. The GrateDrain™ installed by the Sump pump Geeks, as part the iBasement™ System, is a patented sealed drainage system, providing a superior solution. It effectively manages water ingress while keeping harmful elements out, creating a healthier and drier basement environment. By ensuring better overall indoor air quality in your home, this innovative approach to basement waterproofing highlights the undeniable advantages of choosing a closed system over an open one.
