Northern Basement Systems Case Studies: When you need to use DryTrak

Friday, February 15th, 2019 by Chris Fortier


The home owners in Hyde Park, Vermont were sick and tired of having a wet basement.  Everytime it rained they knew there would be some amount of picking up and drying of their basement.  It was an unwanted hassle they wanted no part of.  They sought out a trustworthey and reliable company to help achieve their goals of a dry basement.  They contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems at 855-DRY-TIME.


The original proposal called for a Water Guard System and a Super Sump Pump. This will take care of their wet basement problem for good.  However, during an inspection by our foreman,  it was discovered that the basement foundation was monolithic.  This means the floor and footing were poured as one piece.  This is not a problem at all for Northern Basement Systems.  The foreman explained the issue to the customers.  He than further explained how he could easily still make their basement  dry for good.  It will take just using a DryTrak system, in place of the water guard system.  DryTrak is used when jack hammering can not be done or it can result in major damage to the foundation.  The DryTrak will collect the water and route it to the Super Sump Pump.  The pump will then discharge the water out of the basement and out of a discharge line away form the house.  Our customers are now very happy with their dry basement.
