What is an IceGuard? | All Things

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013


In the coldest areas of the U.S., wintertime usually brings a load of potential wet basement problems to homeowners. To keep our basements dry year round, we rely on drainage systems installed along our foundation perimeter to collect the water from rain, snow and other types of frozen precipitation. The water is then channeled to a sump pump to pump this water up and out of the home through a discharge line and direct this water as far away from the house as possible.

Sometimes during the winter -- especially after a significant snow fall -- the end of the discharge pipe might be covered with snow and ice, and water may freeze inside the discharge pipe, clogging the system.
When that happens, the water returns back into the sump pit, and the sump pump will continuously recycle the water without the ability to get rid of it. Eventually, the overwhelmed sump pump may be unable to handle the volume of water and burn out -causing the basement to flood.


To prevent that catastrophe from happening, Larry Janesky and his team at Basement Systems Inc. developed the IceGuard discharge line extension. The IceGuard has a patented design with perforations to keep the water flowing out of the basement, even if the end of the pipe is clogged, thus preventing basement flooding.


Basement Systems, has been successfully fixing wet basements for well over 20 years, and using their accumulated experience to develop and perfect a full line of products designed to effectively and permanently solve all types of basement water problems.

The IceGuard extension is just one of the many smart solutions designed to keep your basement dry and exclusively available to you through a dealership network of over 300 contractors across the U.S., Canada and U.K.
