We Fix Leaking Basements
In a basement waterproofing system, french drains work by relieving hydrostatic pressure.
When it's wet and rainy outside, the soil outside your foundation becomes saturated with water. Your
basement walls and floor are subjected to high hydrostatic pressure the downward pressure of water
due to gravity.
A french drain is sometimes also referred to as drainage tile, a rubble drain, a perimeter drain or
Clogged drainage lines cause water problems. When a French drain is surrounded by soil, it
eventually becomes clogged with silt and plant roots.
Interior French Drain Systems
- It is designed not to clog - sits on top of the footing

FRENCH DRAINS with
Masonry BLOCK Walls
- Installation process: First we knock-out your concrete floor about (10 to 14) from the
cinder block wall. Then we dig down to expose the footer. Then all mud, debris, broken concrete is
removed and the trench is cleaned.
- The blocks are drilled to provide weep holes, approximately 3 to 4 holes per block. A 4 PVC
perforated pipe is laid adjacent to the footer. The holes face downward at about 5 & 7 oclock position.
This pipe is surrounded by washed granite stone. Pipe is pitched to run to a sump basket, containing
a 1/3rd horse power submersible sump pump.
- A 1 discharge line is attached to the pump. Check valve is installed and the pipe is run
up and out above grade a short distance in accordance with New Castle County Code. We place
concrete over the top of trench leaving a small gap along the wall, as well as, any obstructions
like oil tanks that will catch any leak above the system.
Poured Concrete & Stone walls do not require weep holes.

A sump pump is the heart of a basement or crawl space waterproofing system. This electrically
powered device does the heavy lifting to keep your basement dry. It pumps water out of your basement
(or crawl space) after the water collects in a sump pit dug into the floor.
Your sump pump setup doesnt have to be an eyesore. Instead of being installed in an ugly open hole,
your sump pump can be housed in a durable plastic sump liner with an airtight cover.
We carry only the best sump pump motors in the industry, designed to handle high water volume and
long run times.
Our sump pumps are designed to resist clogging and feature a compact, jam-proof switch.
