Hydrostatic Pressure Restoration in Alabama

Hydrostatic Pressure Restoration in Montgomery & Cordova, Alabama

Increase in water pressure results into a potential leak into your basement

One of the major water problems that can occur in your basement is Hydrostatic Pressure
“Hydrostatic Pressure” refers to water pressure and is a major cause of basement water problems. Water weighs slightly more than 60lbs. per cubic foot. If the soil around your basement is saturated with water, there could be tens of thousands of pounds of hydrostatic pressure against your foundation. With significant pressure, it's likely that water will find its way through even the smallest crack or gap in your basement.

Hydrostatic Pressure Restoration

The Solution to Hydrostatic Pressure

Even a well-constructed basement foundation can’t provide a perfect barrier against hydrostatic pressure. Our integrated interior waterproofing system that relieves pressure is the best approach in most situations. Interior drainage systems, like our patented WaterGuard® interior French drain, collect water where the basement floor meets the basement wall. By not relying on outside drains that can clog with silt or roots, interior systems work continuously to channel water to a connected sump pump that automatically channels any water to the outside.

Rely on Our Tools to Solve Your Hydrostatic Pressure Problems in Adamsville & Cleveland, AL

The standard tools used to relieve hydrostatic pressure are some sort of drainage board or sheet drain to allow water to quickly make its way to the footing, a footing tile (usually clay or perforated plastic pipe) that collects water and channels it to a sump pit, and a sump pump that will discharge that water well away from the structure.
There are other factors, of course. Builders and landscapers should ensure the ground surrounding the structure is sloped away from the building, and that gutters and downspouts discharge stormwater well away from the foundation.

With existing construction, it’s often extremely expensive to inspect, repair, or replace drainage components on the outside of the wall, so other specialized products are available to relieve hydrostatic pressure from the interior of the basement. We serve customers in Cleveland, Adamsville, Kansas, Birmingham, Montgomery, and other cities throughout Alabama.
