Efflorescence on Cinder Block Walls
If you're basement walls look like this, you probably have a wet basement issue. The white stuff on the walls, called efflorescence (loss of lime salt), is one of the biggest signs of water intrusion.
Wet and Leaky Basement
Water was seeping through the cinder block foundation walls and pooling on the basement floor. After heavy rains, the walls would feel damp and the basement would smell musty.
Water Seeps in at Cove Joint
The most common place for water to seep into a basement is the gap where the floor and the walls meet (also called the cove joint.) It will leave damage and discoloration like this.
WaterGuard Perimeter Drainage System
Before water can leak into the basement, it will drain into the perimeter drainage system (also known as a French drain) - preventing pooling or flooding.
TripleSafe Sump Pump in Basement
The TripleSafe Sump Pump is the number one thing you need if you are experiencing water issues in your basement or crawl space. The water collected by the drain is deposited into the sump basin, which then pumps the water far away from the home.
