How will water flow if my floor is uneven? Click for Answer...
SquidGee Dry System stands five inches tall to allow for uneven floors. As water around your foundation rises, it begins to flow into the SquidGee Dry System. Water flows naturally toward any low spot or drain.
Will water remain standing in low areas of the system? Click for Answer...
When the water stops flowing out at the drain or sump pump, you know that the SquidGee Dry System has finished its work. With the water level now lower than the floor, any water left standing in the SquidGee Dry System flows back out through the weep holes.
What are the dimensions of the main sections? Click for Answer...
Main sections are 5 inches tall.
The bottom of the main section that is glued to the basement floor is 1-3/4 inches wide. When installed the system sits out 2 inches from the basement wall.
The main sections come in easy to handle 4 feet 6 inch long sections. Our quick quote will calculate how many sections you'll need when you enter your linear footage.
SquidGee Dry System comes with pre-molded inside and outside corners for seamless installation! You don't have to miter together your corner pieces. Simply glue the corners in place.
Can the channel collect water seeping down the wall? Click for Answer...
The top of the SquidGee Dry System is not glued to the basement wall, therefore, any water seepage down the face of the basement walls or window wells overflowing will be directed back behind the system. You can also install a vapor barrier along the face of the walls and tuck it back behind the system to create a pocket for any wall seepage to travel through.
How many tubes of SealOnce Adhesive do I need? Click for Answer...
You need 1 tube of SealOnce Adhesive per main section.
Will it work with poured, stone or brick walls? Click for Answer...
SquidGee Dry System works with any type of basement wall because the main sections are not glued to the walls. They simply rest against the face of basement walls. The top of the system is left open to allow any water seepage from the face of the walls to enter the system. The top the main section curls back creating a mini-trough directing the water behind and into the channel.
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.
SquidGee Dry System taps into the hydrostatic pressure build up on block wall foundations. 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. 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.
