Job completed for Ken B.

Completion date: January 5, 2021

Location: Hendersonville, NC

Why did the customer contact us?

Ken contacted us because when it rained heavy he had some water coming into his crawl space and wanted a solution.

Solutions provided:

Basement & Radon Solutions, BRs Pros, installed a hydra-channel dewatering system in Ken's crawl space. We started by digging a clean trench along the full interior perimeter of the crawlspace foundation. The hydra-channel was installed according to manufacturer's instructions adjacent to the footing. The Hydra-channel engineered fusion welded high strength polyethylene water system will remove storm water up to 70% faster than a pipe and stone system This allows water to flow freely to the in-ground sealed sump pump/basin located in the left rear corner of the crawlspace. The Hydra-Channel system will carry a five year transferable warranty to prevent water on top of the ground liner. Then we installed a Pro-Series Pump System in left rear corner of the crawlspace (as looking at the front door). The system includes 1/3 HP cast iron primary pump with dual float cage. Included is a deluxe controller that monitors pump and power conditions and sounds an alarm when problems are detected and/or a high water warning in the sump. Additionally, it activates the pump weekly to exercise and extend the pumps life. After we installed the Pro-Series Pump System we installed a vapor barrier to the crawl space. BRS Pros installed 9-mil white 100% woven reinforced radon ready crawl space system. A radon piping system will be installed below the ground liner. The piping system will be used in the future when the home is tested for radon gas and requires a complete radon system. 9-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Most crawl space liners are partially reinforced, our woven liner is 100% reinforced and tough unlike competitive brand liners that are only 10% reinforced. This product will not off gas (known on Google as "crawl space cat urine odor", go ahead and check it out), we guarantee it!! Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to the liner. Lastly, we installed a Hygometer- a remote temperature and relative humidity meter stand alone unit with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in Ken's crawl space to give Ken an accurate reading of relative humidity in the crawl space. It was a joy yo help Ken make his home happy, healthy, and safe!
