The Hydrocontrol Interior Drain System
The most effective sub-slab basement waterproofing system available today! Here’s how the Hydrocontrol System works:
In homes not protected by the Hydrocontrol Interior Drain System, a common cause of basement flooding is ground water under hydrostatic pressure entering at the intersection where the foundation wall and the floor slab meet (called the cove area).
Placement of the original, patented, Hydrocontrol Interior Drain System is the key to its unparalleled success. (You won’t see it, because it has been installed under the basement floor slab.)
Because the cove area is the exact location for placement of the Hydrocontrol System, if ground water is present, when it reaches this area, it is intercepted by the Hydrocontrol System, and the pressure is relieved. The water’s natural course is then through the Hydrocontrol System to the sump basin where it can be discharged.
