The SmartJack crawl space stabilizer is a supplemental support system for crawl space applications. The SmartJack effectively supports sagging beams and floor joist caused by:
length of span greater than spanning capability of the members
floor load added construction, exceeding design values
the weakening of members over time due to high moisture and rot
This homeowner was experiencing water in their basement and did not know what kind of damage they could experience. To solve the problems they were facing we installed a SuperSump to pump the water out of the basement. Watergaurd was also installed, this watergaurd is an interior drain that goes straight to the SmartSump and out of the basement.
The dimples allow better conductivity for water to get to the perimeter drainage or sump pump located in the lowest spot of the crawl space.
Most times, water in the crawl space gets there one of three ways: a plumbing leak, water seepage from the surrounding soil (usually after heavy rain), or condensation. Humidity condenses on cold surfaces, like ducts, and drips onto the crawl space floor.
Puddles of water in the crawl space aren’t good, but the water itself won’t ruin your home. It’s the water vapor (or moisture) that causes rot, mold, energy loss, and attracts pests. And these problems don’t just stay in your crawl space. As much as 50% of the air upstairs comes from below - this means mold spores, musty smells, and humid air that dust mites love.
Part of keeping your crawl space dry involves a sump pump. The state-of-the-art SmartSump is designed just for crawl spaces. The liner and lid are designed to form a tight seal around the CleanSpace liner. Since you don't go into your crawl space often, you need to know if there is a plumbing leak. The SmartSump has a unique lid design so water from a plumbing leak fills an alarm pocket on the lid first, sounding a WaterWatch alarm. From there, the water flows down a special airtight floor drain that lets water down, but damp air cannot come up into your crawl space. The alarm also alerts you to pump or power failures.

Basement water problems are as old as the structures themselves. Water will leak into a basement through any opening it can, including your walls, floors, and the joints between them. Water can even pass through the concrete itself -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

This involves "painting" the basement walls and floors with a waterproof coating of cement that's meant to seal out the moisture.
It applies directly to the concrete's surface with a brush or roller and is often applied when a homeowner is preparing for basement finishing.
This involves digging out the entire perimeter of the basement, installing a new drain, and possibly adding a waterproof coating on the walls.
This type of installation has been used for many decades—a drain of this type is generally installed when the home is built.
