If there is water leaking into your basement, a perimeter drain could be the right option for you. At TerraFirma, we offer a variety of interior drainage systems to help keep your basement dry and clean.

WaterGuard® Below Floor Drain

Our most popular drainage system, WaterGuard®, is the ideal solution for most basement waterproofing applications. This interior drain is designed to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing.

Advantages

  • Installed with minimal invasion of the slab and all concrete is restored after installation.
  • Includes wall flange with 3/8″ opening to collect water from walls.
  • Able to waterproof concrete block foundation walls.
  • Water is collected without the risk of clogs that would halt your system.

Drytrak® BASEBOARD DRAIN PIPE

If your house has a monolithic foundation, or a foundation that comes with the floor and footing as one piece, jackhammering to install a drain system can be very difficult. In those cases, we use our DryTrak® system to avoid any problems. This system installs over the top of the floor, eliminating the need for excessive excavation.

DryTrak® provides the same protection and drainage for water seeping through foundation walls, while also giving the clean, finished appearance of a baseboard. The drain is secured to the floor with only a slight opening at the top, allowing water to flow in and drain to your sump pump. DryTrak® comes with a lifetime written warranty.

FlowGuard® Thin Floor Drain System

Sometimes the concrete floor in a basement is too thin for a drain to be installed on top of the footer. We usually address this challenge with our FlowGuard® Thin Floor System. This system is designed to sit in front of the footing in a bed of drainage stone.

Advantages

  • Quick installation and seamless finish. After installation, the concrete floor is restored over the drain.
  • Includes wall flange with 3/8″ opening to collect water from walls.
  • This system avoids the “mud zone” to prevent any clogging issues.

TrenchLock™ Drain Inserts

TrenchLock™ is an insert that can be installed in an existing trench drain to allow water down without allowing air to come up. The system comes with balls that fit over the drainage holes, which create an airtight seal when there is no water.

Advantages

  • Designed to block unwanted ground air and gasses from entering the basement and home.
  • Easy installation.

VaporLoc Elite Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

VaporLoc Elite is a 100% waterproof, 120 mil thick plastic liner that is perfect for unfinished crawl spaces preventing leaks and mold growth. This crawlspace liner creates a clean, dry, sanitary, usable area. With correct installation it can insulate your crawlspace and reduce energy costs.

Advantages

  • Greatly reduces musty smells, with an EVOH layer that seals out odors.
  • Reduces allergens such as mold and dust mites, improving indoor air quality throughout the home.
  • Seals out soil gasses while eliminating excessive, destructive moisture, which could lead to wood rot.
