Replacing a tanking system
Traditional forms of waterproofing, such as basement tanking, can be effective if installed correctly. Over time however, it is not uncommon for traditional tanking systems to fail.
There are a variety of internal and external basement waterproofing systems to choose from. The video above shows an example of a cementitious tanking system that has been pushed away from the wall due to a build up of water (hydrostatic) pressure. The tanking system will be replaced with a combination of cavity wall membranes, drainage channels and sump pumps to ensure a waterproof environment. These modern waterproofing systems will manage and control water as opposed to simply holding it back.
