These homeowners were having water roll down from a higher elevation of their property, pouring into the basement. This not only caused the basement to flood, but the sump pump was overpowered due to the amount of rainwater.
To correct this problem, our Waterproofing and Drainage Experts installed an 18” drain box connected to 6” hard white PVC pipe, which allows the water to drain to the street below.
We also tied into the corner down spout. Take note, too, that the concrete pad is 2” lower than the stairs - this ensures that the water has to go into the new drain box. It's a relatively simple fix to make a big difference.
