Your basement may be showing signs of water intrusion if it feels humid, produces a musky/moldy smell, or visible moisture spots. These signs are more common in spring and fall as rain water and snow runoff create water pools underneath and surrounding your home. Under the right conditions, the water pools build up pressure and permeate concrete, sometimes causing cracks or visible moisture spots.
Here's a diagram of a typical basement water intrusion:
The good news is that these leaks can be prevented with a Basement Waterproofing System. The membrane is usually installed on the exterior of the foundation but can also be applied on the inside of the basement. There are also additional measures that can be taken to foolproof the basement by creating underground channels for water runoff. At Public Plumbing we take care of all of the above and our highly skilled team can waterproof your basement and solve those leaks once and for all. By using proven technologies and latest equipment, all of our projects are done on time, with highest quality, and the best part â€“ at very affordable rates!

After having the sewer back up last year, we were not willing to live that nightmare again. Public plumbing put in a back flow valve and sump pump. All the staff were very professional. They showed up in a timely manner. I highly recommend this company.

Walter and his team originally replaced all the clay sewage lines in my1960s bungalow. He then changed out our old copper pipes to new Pex with individual Runs to each device. During last summer our house was hit by the sewage backup. Once it was cleaned up Walter came in to install a sump pump and back flow valve. I am a very picky person and his team did everything I was looking for and more. My basement is completely finish with expensive Italian Porcelain. So he installed the backflow value on the outside of the house. It also makes it easier to clean. It was a great deal more work than an inside one but his team was still able to dig 8 feet down update everything and replace within 2 days. We are so happy with the piece of mind that the next time the city fails we should be okay thanks to Public Plumbing. We will likely ask Walter and his team to water proof the outside walls of our basement as a final precaution. Again thanks for your help.
