The walls depend on an adequate drainage system. Without proper drainage there will be unnecessary soil pressure against the wall. Also the wall has an insulation factor that can be affected when the cavities have water trapped in them.

The footer, is normally made of concrete or brick and mortar. When B-Dry is put into place, the footers integrity is not affected at all.

These exterior drains are exposed to soil erosion, tree roots and rodents. B-Dry, will bypass this failing exterior drainage, while allowing it to function at the current rate.

B-Dry System is the pioneer of the interior drain tile. Not prone to blockage by the elements that block the outside drainage, there is no active flow of water through the walls, as told by some contractors that use a scare tactic as a method to charge $THOUSANDS$ more. If you have the potential for water entering the wall, that will be addressed at your consultation.

Most municipalities require the installation of a submersible pump system, for both interior and exterior systems.

A standard installation.

1 - Remove approximately 9 - 12 inches of concrete floor adjoining the walls on the inside of the basement.
2 - Excavate and pitch trench to the bottom of the footer, exposing top and sides of footer. Trench can be deeper to accommodate any pipes or utilities that may interfere with the drainage path.
3 - Install sump pump (where required by local building code)
  • Install 18 inch circumference by 30 inch deep perforated crock.
  • Standard installation of 1/3 horse power submersible cast iron motor.
  • 1&1/2 inch PVC discharge line with check valve.
  • Connection of discharge line to outside drain source (downspout, storm sewer, natural watershed).
  • All drainage intended to be by gravity, no trap is necessary.
4 - Line the bottom of the trench with washed gravel, used as a bedding and filter for drain tile.
5 - Install 4 inch drain tile in trench next to footing. Allow approximate pitch of 1/4 inch per 10 foot length.
6 - Cover drain tile with #57 washed gravel as a filter.
7 - Install wall drainage system and vapor barrier. This step varies dependent upon what the wall structure is built with.
8 - Cover drainage system with concrete. The curing of this concrete can take up to 30 to 45 days to completely cure.
9 - Electrical outlet for Sump Pump system will be installed by a licensed electrician.
