Frequently Asked Questions

WHY IS IT BETTER TO ADDRESS BASEMENT FLOODING FROM THE INSIDE RATHER THAN FROM THE OUTSIDE?

It saves time and money, is less intrusive, and if you are purchasing a Basement Technologies System, it comes with a lifetime warranty.

WHY NOT JUST INSTALL A SUMP PUMP?

A basement sump pump only collects water from a limited area, not the entire basement.

HOW DO YOU STOP WATER FROM COMING UP THROUGH BASEMENT FLOOR CRACKS?

If you waterproof the perimeter of the basement from the inside, that will stop it 99% of the time. Because it’s coming in from the outside of the walls and running in underneath the floor, you catch it as it’s coming in.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE WATER FROM A BLOCK FOUNDATION?

When we waterproof, we drill holes in the block underneath the floor. That allows the water to run into our interior drainage system system.

CAN I STILL FINISH MY BASEMENT AFTER YOU INSTALL THE SYSTEM?

Please do! That is the next step for many of our customers. 

HOW DOES WATER GET TO THE SUMP PUMP?

It travels through our patented Water Trek Aqua Route interior basement drainage system to the sump pump.

WHAT ABOUT THE WATER COMING DOWN MY WALLS?

Our system is designed to catch the water if it comes down the wall. However, in areas of high intrusion, we address the issue with our Techni-Crack membrane.

WHAT IF THE ELECTRICITY GOES OFF?

We strongly recommend installing a Battery Backup Sump Pump or a Whole House Generator to avoid problems during prolonged power outages. 

IF I CLEAN MY GUTTERS AND ADD DOWNSPOUT EXTENSIONS, WILL THAT SOLVE THE PROBLEM?

That’s a nice myth. Once the water has found it’s way into a basement, it will continue to come in. Basement leaks do not fix themselves. The problem will continue to worsen.

CAN I PAINT MY WALLS WITH WATERPROOF PAINT?

Paint will not stop the water. It’ll look great…until the first rain. After that you’ll have water and paint on the basement floor.
