Learn About Our Process

Drainage System
Hydraway 2000 is a flat strip drain solution that is manufactured to last longer than other drainage systems and maintains superior performance over the course of its life. In fact, there has never been a reported failure due to quality problems or manufacturing defects.
Hydraway 2000
permits high flow rates for rapid dewatering of the soil, while effectively preventing passage of soil particles. It is made of a heavyduty, clog resistant geotextile fabric, permanently bonded to lattice core of 75% available open space for water.
Hydraway Drain Board System
By combining high compression strength and flexible polyethylene core with a higher in-flow rate, the Hydraway 300 system better relieves hydrostatic pressure alongside residential and commercial foundation walls and other subsurface structures than traditional systems. In fact, there has never been a reported failure due to quality problems or manufacturing defects.
Sump Basin
The Apollo 24” one piece basin offers a unique bell shaped design capable of holding three sump pumps. The large 24” water reservoir allows the basin to hold more water and extended the life of your pumps. This basin is topped off with a two piece clear lid for convenient inspection and access. The lid comes pre-installed with a Dranjer drain, sealed cord pass-throughs, and discharge line grommets. A gasket is used to seal the basin and protect against water vapor, odors, and radon gas.
Radon Mitigation
Our standard waterproofing install includes a stub for future radon mitigation.
