Hydrostatic pressure relief drain tile system
Basement waterproofing hydrostatic pressure relief drain tile system, is installed where the wall and floor meet by breaking out the concrete floor approximately one foot from the foundation wall then digging down and trenching to create a flow to a sump liner/pit which is normally located in the corner of basement. We then install 4″ perforated drain tile into the trench and surround by gravel.
We install a cove plate at the base of wall then re-cement the floor back in as original. Then we install a 1/3 horsepower submersible automatic pump into the sump liner then properly discharges the pump water to a suitable exterior location away from house. The cove plate is a very important feature, if any wall leak forms the cove plate will catch any seepage and direct into the drain tile system, keeping the floor completely dry.

Sump Pump Installation
Your primary sump pump is your first line of defense against basement flooding. The sump pumps job is to remove any water that collects in the sump pit, and is designed to maintain a lower water table. Sump pumps have a float, or switch that tells it when to turn on and off.
There are many types of floats or switches… mechanical, tethered, pressure and electronic. Since the switch mechanism is the most common reason for sump pump failure your focus needs to be on picking a high quality sump pump first.
