Baseboard Drain Pipe

The DryTrak® Baseboard Basement Drain Pipe System

What It Does:

One of the most significant challenges our experts see on a daily basis are homes with monolithic floors.

Normally, foundations are built in three pieces -- the floor, the walls, and the foundation footing. In the case of monolithic floors, there are just two pieces, as the floor and footing are poured as just one piece.

As a result, the edges of these floors are extremely thick, and jackhammering them is labor-intensive and creates a lot of dust!

We address this challenge by installing our DryTrak® Drain Pipe System. This is a baseboard drain that is permanently epoxied above the floor (and above the mud sitting below the floor) -- with no jackhammering.

Advantages To Our System:

  • No Jackhammering During Installation
  • Collects Water From Walls & Floor Joint
  • Above The Mud Zone To Prevent Clogging
  • Ideal For Monolithic Or Thick Floors
  • Includes A Written Lifetime Warranty

The DryTrak® System is also a great option for unusually thick concrete slab floors. Like monolithic floors, jackhammering through can mean a lot of work and dust.

Draining Water Trapped In Block Walls

If you have a block wall foundation, then there is a second challenge to deal with. The open cavities in each block are susceptible to filling with water -- which then seeps in through the walls.

We eliminate this water source by drilling a "weep hole" in each block. The water then pours through these holes and directly into the drain pipe.

The drain pipe is epoxied directly to the floor, leaving a slight opening along the top to collect water leaking in from the walls. Thus, your home is waterproofed without jackhammering!

Leaky Windows, Cracks, & Penetrations

Water can flood into a basement from many different locations along the walls. At Ridgeback Basement Systems, we have these solutions:

  • For leaking wall cracks and gaps around pipes or wires, we use the FlexiSpan® System.
  • If you have leaks around a basement window, we recommend our WellDuct® System.
  • If your walls are leaking in many places at once, we cover the walls with our wall products.

Many of our wall products double as an aesthetic or insular upgrade. Each of our wall drainage systems can be tucked into your DryTrak® Drain Pipe System so that water leaking from your walls is then directed to your sump pump system.
