Waterproof Any Type of Basement

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.

“I installed the Squidgee do-it-yourself. Since then, it has stood up to hurricane Irene and hurricane Sandy. IT WORKS GREAT!” – Henry T. from Woolrich, New Jersey

""I actually am in sales for a waterproofing company. I asked my boss what he would charge me for a kit to do my two 30 ft walls that are underground in the basement. He said if I did it myself the materials would be 1000.00 I am proud to report that your (SquidGee Dry System) materials cost me 336.00 and my installation went off without a hitch and I have a dry basement that drains perfectly out of two gravity drains. You have a great product at a great price." - Rob from Walland, Tennessee
