WaterGuard® is a patented, award-winning basement drain system that's installed in a bed of clean stone on top of the foundation footing.
This keeps the drain out of the "mud zone", where clogging of drain systems is common. Large drainage openings and a unique shape also aid in clog resistance.
Waterguard is our most widely used drain system -- popular because of its resistance to clogging, its service ports, and its ability to also collect water from the basement walls.
Customers also appreciate how quickly this system is installed in a home -- which is done with minimal removal of the slab. All removed concrete is restored during the installation.
Our basement drain systems are a great way to transform your basement into dry, usable space -- warrantied! Our dealers typically install a complete drain system in less than two days.

The WaterGuard® Drain System is installed with a built-in wall flange that extends up your basement wall by 3/8".
This allows your system to collect water from the walls -- without picking up debris from your basement floor that would potentially clog your system.
Flooding water can emerge from many points in the basement wall -- including from wall cracks, pipe penetrations, and basement windows.
Water collected by these systems is then drained down to your WaterGuard® System.
If you have concrete block foundation walls, water can also build up in the empty cavity of each block, where it eventually seeps into your home.
The wall flange that extends upwards on our WaterGuard® system can be used to drain water building up within block walls.
To accomplish this, we drill "weep holes" in each block, which releases the water against the flange and into your WaterGuard® System.
Old-fashioned drain systems are labor-intensive to install, require an open gap along your floor, and are prone to clogging with mud. Our patented WaterGuard® System is the result of more than two decades of research and development by the world's largest network of waterproofers -- and is backed by a lifetime transferable written warranty!
