Hydraway Drainage Systems
Hydraway has built a great reputation protecting investments of homeowners through innovative technology in waterproofing. Hydraway can be installed in your basement, crawl space, used for exterior drainage, and installed behind retaining walls.
Hydraway will capture water before it enters your basement, relieving hydrostatic pressure and resulting in a dry, comfortable area. Utilizing a four step process, Hydraway Drainage System protects your largest investment.
First, our certified installer removes a small section of the floor in the impacted area. Next, small weep holes are cored beneath the floor slab to release hydrostatic pressure (for block walls only). The Hydraway System, consisting of Hydraway 2000 and Hydraway 300, is then inserted. Lastly, the removed section of the concrete floor is repoured to original thickness, ensuring its structural integrity.
In addition to a dry basement or crawlspace, here are some other reasons to utilize the Hydraway Waterproofing System for your waterproofing installations.
- Proven history of successful installations worldwide — residential, commercial, and industrial.
- Capacity to handle 70% more water than other methods — greater relief from hydrostatic pressure.
- Polypropylene filtration ensures the Hydraway System will never clog; No known failures worldwide.
- Fusion bonding of the filter to the core adds significant strength to withstand extreme conditions.
Hydraway in Crawlspaces
The Hydraway System can used in crawlspaces to protect homes and foundations from water damage. Once a trench is dug around the perimeter of the foundation, Hydraway is inserted among the soil and connected to each sump pit. A black vinyl liner is often placed over the base of the crawlspace to seal off any incoming moisture to the air.
The specially engineered design of the Hydraway 2000 permits high flow rates for rapid dewatering of the soil, while effectively preventing passage of soil particles. It is made of a heavy-duty, clog-resistant geotextile fabric, permanently bonded to lattice core of 75% available open space for water. The design of Hydraway allows it to relieve hydrostatic pressure by acting as a shallow underdrain. The Hydraway 2000 is a cost effective and superior performing replacement for the “French” drain, or other conventional “drain-til” systems.
Hydraway 300 captures water at the foundation’s weakest point — where the footing, the wall, and the floor meet. Hydraway 300 is widely used to relieve hydrostatic pressure against subsurface structures. This system provides a built-in protection board in a one-piece construction.
Other applications include Retaining Walls, Exterior Foundations, Planter boxes, Landscaping, and Sub-Slab Construction.
Once the Hydraway System drains water from the basement or crawlspace, the water needs somewhere to go. Once installed, the Hydraway is connected to a sump pit that is situated within the soil. Inside the sump pit contains a sump pump that pushes the water up and out of your basement through the discharge hose. The Hydrapump captures water from the Hydraway system and routes it through drain pipes to the exterior of the home.
Intech Anchoring also offers battery backup systems as they are sometimes necessary to ensure peace-of-mind to homeowners in the event of a power outage or primary sump pump failure. The backup battery case and charger are positioned on the basement floor next to the backup pump. In the event of high water in the sump pit, the water level float sensor will engage the system and sound an alarm to alert the homeowner the system is operating. The water is pumped out of the pit through an additional discharge hose.
Hydrashield is a wall paneling system used to seal off residential basements from incoming moisture. The Hydrashield Wall Paneling System, used in conjunction with the Hydraway Waterproofing System, can brighten up unsightly basements. Hydrashield transforms damp, ugly basements into a dry, comfortable, functional living spaces.
Hydrashield consists of rigid panels secured directly to your basement walls, as each panel is custom fit with matching connectors. The system is extremely durable and easy to clean for homeowners – simply wash off any dirt. It replaces the “painted on” coating which will peel and eventually allow water to penetrate through the walls.
Hydraliner is a vapor barrier product to seal off residential basements and crawlspaces from incoming moisture, insects, and rodents. Hydraliner provides complete protection in crawlspace and basements that retain water or moisture, which can create potential rot. The exposed earth beneath your home can in turn, impact the structural integrity of a home or health of the occupants. Moisture can also breed a variety of living organisms from mold spores to insects.
Hydraliner serves as a blockade to invasive animals such as termites, beetles, rodents, or snakes. These invasive animals can cause damage to exposed wood, thus putting the home at greater risk. Mold can harmful generate toxins; Humidity levels can range from 50%-90% in a crawlspace, which are perfect conditions for mold to grow. Hydraliner will help prevent mold in and around a home, leaving less allergens in the air.
Carbonbond Structural System
The CarbonBond Structural System is a patented technology that integrates the advancements made in aerospace to produce solutions for homes. The system is strong, yet safe and economical.
The CarbonBond Structural System is used as a reinforcement of concrete and block basement walls. In particular, Woven Carbon Fiber straps can prevent damage by providing 10 times the strength of steel to resist soil pressure against basement walls.
Using high strength Polyurethane to fill the existing void, and high tensile strength Carbon Fiber sheets to stop any further movement, the CarbonBond System stops cracks in their tracks. With Carbon Fiber materials stronger than steel, CarbonBond bridges the forces to fix the crack.
- No excavating or drilling as the CarbonBond System installs easily without need for heavy or noisy equipment.
- Compared to steel, Carbon Fiber is over 10 times stronger, much thinner (only one-tenth of an inch), and 40 times lighter.
- CarbonBond repairs are completely maintenance free because they never will corrode like steel.
- With the ease of installation, its incredible strength, and the durability of Carbon Fiber, it’s easy to see that no other choice makes sense.
Carbonbond can be installed in a simple, 4-step process:
- Inject polyurethane into the crack to stop water leakage
- Prepare surface and apply primer
- Bond carbon fiber to the surface to cover the crack
- Apply final coat of epoxy
Crack Repair Injections
Our specially formulated crack repair injection system is designed to push water away and permanently restore structural strength to concrete. The use of our injection systems provide superior solutions to cracks in concrete basements, foundation walls, and structures.
Our formulated epoxy system is designed to stop concrete deterioration at the crack, while protecting the steel reinforcement inside the impacted area. The urethane injection resin acts to push water away to facilitate the sealing of cracks in basement walls. Our system can restore structural strength to the home, while protecting the interior living space from incoming water, air, and bugs.
Our crack injection systems are installed in 3 steps:
- The walls are prepared for installation by sanding the area clean of debris.
- Injections ports are installed and sealed off.
- Our specially formulated resin is injected into the crack through the ports.
Chance Helical Piering System
Chance Helical Piles are ideal for stabilizing/lifting foundations or retrofitting to increase load capacity. They are installed at carefully selected locations along load bearing walls and columns at affected locations.
Independent of the structure, the piles are installed into stable bearing soils at depths necessary to attain the required load bearing capacity.
Special foundation repair brackets are then placed on the helical piles and secured to the concrete foundation with concrete anchor bolts.
Chance Helical Pier Foundation Repair Advantages
- No heavy equipment required
- Quick installation
- Lower costs
- Time-proven engineered system
- Installs in limited-access areas
- Limited excavation required
The Chance Helical Pile System can also be utilized with new construction foundations. They can be installed to support foundation grade beams, footings, column bases, compression & tension loads, and concrete slabs.
Chance Helical Wall Anchoring System
The success of the Helical screw anchor system is based on decades of similar use of Chance anchors by electrical utilities. The proven reliability and engineered predictability of the system’s performance gives you anchors that are permanent, economical, and hassle-free. Engineered for dependability and long-term stability, the Chance Helical Wall Anchor System features exclusive anchoring techniques, tools, designs, and sizes that make other foundation methods a thing of the past. It provides a smart, cost-effective solution for bulging, bowing, or cracked walls.
There is no grout used so installed anchors can be tested immediately, and concrete trucks or grout pumps are not required. They can be installed in almost any weather using conventional drilling equipment. The Chance Anchors from Intech Anchoring have predictable holding strength in all soils.
The AB Chance Helical Wall Anchor System components include: Lead Helix, Extension(s), Anchor Termination, Wall Plate (or C-channel for blocked foundations). The installation steps include:
- The foundation is prepared for anchor installation by drilling 3” diameter holes at each anchor location from the inside to the outside.
- After the Helical anchor is screwed into the inactive soil, it is then extended through the drilled hole in the wall.
- From the inside, a wall plate (or a steel 6” C-channel for blocked foundations) is attached to the anchor and secured tight.
Atlas Resistance Piering System
Atlas Resistance Piers are used to restore and/or stabilize homes that have settled due to a wide variety of soil problems.
Properly installed, Atlas Resistance Piers can prevent further settlement by stabilizing foundations. They can also be utilized to restore settled structures nearly to their original positions, often fixing structural defects such as cracks and deformities caused by the settlement.
The Atlas Resistance Pier is installed in two stages. First, the pipe pier is driven to a firm load bearing strata or rock. The lift equipment is then attached to the foundation repair bracket. Hydraulic jacks, combined with a manifold system, are then used to lift the structure. The Atlas Resistance Pier System procedure provides measured support strength.
Atlas Resistance Piers are spaced at carefully selected locations along load bearing walls and columns at affected locations. Each pier is driven to a suitable soil stratum or rock and then tested to a force greater than required to support the structure. This procedure effectively load tests each pier prior to lift and provides a measured Factor of Safety on each pier.
