Cantey Foundation Specialists Case Studies: Foul Smells in a Wet Basement are Corrected in Camden, SC

Thursday, July 21st, 2016 by Portia Mellott


James D. of Camden, SC realized that he had a foul smell coming from his basement. Upon further inspection, he saw how water pooled in his basement, and he knew it was time to take action.  James called Cantey Foundation Specialists to have a Specialist check out the problem and see if there was a solution. System Design Specialist John Adams came to diagnose the problem and had the perfect, long lasting solution.  Specialist John recommended a SmartSump to drain any existing water in the basement and to pump it away from the home.


Production Crew Foreman Trey Dukes and his crew came in to fix the water issues in the customer's home. The crew installed 21 feet of main drain and a Smart Sump to drain any existing water out of the basement. The main drain creates a pathway for the water to run when there's any water in the basement, and it strategically flows to the Sump Pump.  This SmartSump Pump drains all water out of the basement and away from the home.  Now, customer James knows that the Sump Pump will not allow the water to pool, which will cease all destructive erosion and foul smells for many years to come!
