View Full Version : Recently Installed Interior System - Help!
05-23-2004, 11:09 AM
The home has an interior system done with weep holes and slotted PVC about 2 years ago by Tarwid. We have noticed very little drainage and when the rains came recently, we noticed that the walls are discoloring through the drylock and wetspots coming from the walls and floor area where they did the interior. I am also noticing discoloration through the walls. In addition, the PVC sections that lead into the crock are only about 12" long and are not connected and pull in and out easily. Although the warranty states that they do not cover the walls, I am thinking that the poor interior system is causing all of these problems and should be covered.
Can I have a professional opinion here for leverage?

I called the company last year and told them that the crock never fills up and that an inspector from ev erdry came by and said that the interior system that was put in was very bad and that the PVC was in peices and not even connected!
He asked me if I ever tried putting a hose in the clean out cap on the opposite side of the basement and I did. I told him that the water never made it to the crock for over an hour.
He took pics and said that the original company needs to go back out and do the job right. Since then, I noticed that there is water comming through the drylock on the basement walls on the side of the house where the driveway is. They were contracted to do this too.

An interior system regardless of the type does not have the capability of keeping the water out of the walls. Design is to divert/control water that enters basement. You can cover walls white wall, dry lock, viqueen etc but it is still there.
An interior system is an open system (holes) therefore joints do not need to be glued tight etc. Because it is an open system it is not unusual for water to level around and under floor before making its way into the sump crock.
What would new company due to stop water from getting into the walls minus a full exterior excavation.
