Interior French Drains
Interior perimeter drains or "French drains inside the basement" around the perimeter of the foundation footing serve as a basic defence against groundwater if an exterior French drain is not possible. Interior French drain is considered as a secondary solution because it gives you a dry basement but does not protect the foundation walls against future deterioration.
EXTERIOR FRENCH DRAINS
Exterior drain tiles or "exterior French drains" around the perimeter of the foundation footing serve as a primary defence against groundwater. To handle any water infiltration problem, this is the best solution in combination with the proper membranes.
Akton Injection uses a combination of different membranes that complement each other to resolve any water infiltration. During the evaluation of your home or business, our experts will determine the correct combination for your situation to get optimum results, a dry basement, and peace of mind at a reasonable cost.

Basically, as the groundwater level rises, it is diverted into a catch basin. When the water level reaches a ‘critical level’, the sump pump will automatically begin to pump the water out through a pipe before the water reaches the basement floor. Once the water returns to a ‘normal level’, the pump automatically turns off. A sump pump is an important part of most waterproofing systems because if the pump malfunctions, the system will fail. A proper sump pump can save you thousands of dollars in the long run by protecting you from water damages.
