The Best Foundation Drainage System

Your phone rings and it’s John the builder calling you to waterproof a foundation. You reluctantly send your crew out to handle the project, knowing that it’s going to take several hours and a few of your guys to finish the waterproofing job. But once the job is done, it’s done, right?

As a professional waterproofer, you know all too well that when that when the builder receives a phone call the next time it rains from the homeowner who now has water in their basement, you will once again find yourself back on the job.

A good contractor always goes back to fix the problem, but what if there was a way to prevent the problem from ever occurring in the first place?

The Solution:

The CactusBoard and CactusBoard II drainage system use a molding to create a space between the foundation floor and walls, as well as between the floor and footing. Any water that might leak from the windows, cracks in the walls, or from the footing/wall joint will drain into the stone aggregate underneath the floor, and finally into a sump pump or daylight drain, and most importantly, out of the house.

An important part of the drainage system is the sump pump, which ultimately pumps the water away from the foundation. The TotalSump package is a complete solution for installing a fully-functioning sump pump; and includes a reliable 1/3 hp pump and mechanical float switch, all the screws and bolts, inline check valve, a rigid liner, and an airtight lid that prevents debris from getting in and clogging the pump.
