How to waterproof a basement

The only skill needed to install the DIY basement waterproofing SquidGee Dry System is the ability to follow instructions! Our easy to follow step-by-step installation guide is included with every order.

SquidGee Dry baseboard channel and SealOnce Adhesive bonds watertight and lasts for decades! SquidGee Dry System is an ideal remedy for basements leaking water through the joint where the floor and walls meet, called the cove joint. This hollow PVC baseboard channel is bonded watertight to the basement floor using the powerful SealOnce Adhesive to collect and manage seeping water.

Poured Wall Basements

Poured Wall Basements:

Poured wall basements have cracks from the upper part of the wall extending down to the floor. These cracks seep water and relieve water pressure around the basement.

Seal all vertical cracks EXCEPT the lower 3 inches of the wall or cracks with CRACK! Wall Repair Sealant. NEVER seal the joint where the floor and wall meet! This joint must be kept open to relieve hydrostatic pressure. The SquidGee Dry System will collect water seepage from the vertical wall cracks and from the joint where the floor and wall meet, channeling it to your floor drain or sump pump.


Block Wall Basements

Block Wall Basements:

The SquidGee Dry System is just as effective in block wall basements as it is in those with solid poured walls.

Because the baseboard is not attached to the wall, it allows air to circulate within the block cavities to help keep them dry. It also provides a source of disposal for upper-wall moisture to enter the channel.

Hydrostatic pressure is relieved in block wall foundations by drilling weep holes in the concrete block cavities at floor level. The hollow SquidGee Dry channel collects the seepage.
