BasementGutter™ Interior Drain System

Did you know a wet basement can damage the structural integrity of your home? That can risk your family’s safety and cost you thousands of dollars.

Our BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System can fix the problem of water in your basement. It maintains a moisture-free environment in your downstairs space, protecting your home from water damage. We use this innovative drainage system alongside our other basement waterproofing solutions.

Below, learn why our BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System can solve almost any water infiltration challenge.

What Is the BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System?

The AquaStop™ BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System, available exclusively from The Basement Guys, is an alternative to floor and footing drains that cause water to accumulate in your basement. We position it along a basement’s interior periphery to redirect water seepage to a sump pump.

Installation of this advanced drainage system takes place in the sub-floor of a property. By implementing it above the bottom part of a home’s foundation, clear of the “mud zone,” our team can prevent clogs and improve performance.

Signs You Need Interior Basement Drainage

Consider installing an interior drainage system in your basement if you notice any of these problems:

  • Water accumulating in your basement
  • Wet basement walls
  • Leaky basement windows
  • Increased basement humidity
  • Mold growth
  • Efflorescence on concrete surfaces
  • A musty odor

Ignoring these problems could lead to long-lasting property damage and expensive repair bills. If you spot any of the signs above, contact a basement waterproofing professional in Ohio immediately.

Why Is Basement Interior Drainage Important?

Interior basement drains, also referred to as French drains or perimeter drains, collect water that seeps into the basement and directs it away from the foundation. These drains are installed along the interior perimeter of the basement floor, leading to a sump pump or a drainage system that removes the water.

Floors drains in basements may have water in it at times, especially during periods of heavy rain or if water seeps into the basement. This area is designed to collect excess water and direct it to the drainage system, helping to prevent flooding.

Basement drains are connected to the sewer system if local building codes and regulations require it. Basement drains may be connected to the sewer, or they may drain into a separate stormwater system or discharge outside the building.
