The Origin Of Western (VOLCLAY) Bentonite Clays

tuffndri

Sodium Bentonite is a volcanic ash in origin

 
About 100 million years ago when volcanoes covered the western seaboard from Baja, California to Alaska, a series of violent eruptions blasted fine volcanic ash thousands of feet into the air where the prevailing winds carried it eastwards. Eventually, many of these particles fell into the inland salt sea that then covered a larger area of what is now the United States. Geologists believe that the ash, dissolved in the blistering hot, salty (sodium rich) water, then re-crystallized to form the soft, waxy mineral, montmorillonite (or sodium Bentonite)

Waterproofing below the water table is asking a lot of any system.

The solution: an absolutely dependable waterproofing system. One that heals itself whenever its protection gel is affected by structural settling or intense vibration. Bentonite Waterproofing Systems are tough enough to hold back 97 feet of hydrostatic pressure. It swells when wet with water to form a gel membrane that seals permanently, and reseals if penetrated.

Sub Drain System

The Solution to Combination Problems

“The ultimate waterproofing approach” for old homes looks after all water problem areas in one. The bentonite injection protects the wall. A sub-drain that runs to the sump pump pit under the floor by the footing controls the hydrostatic pressure under the basement floor.

All wall and floor areas come with a Lifetime Transferable Warranty

No messy outside digging with our injection and sub-drain system

Polyurethane Crack Injection

A liquid that is injected into cracks or voids in concrete that swells in contact with water to form a moving, flexible gasket.

Cracked Concrete Walls, Ceilings, and Floors
Pipe Intrusions
Voids Between Walls & Floors, and Walls & Ceilings
Expansion Joints, Cold Joints
Basements
Potable Water Storage Tanks
Sewage Storage Tanks
Sewer Pipes
Elevator Pits
Manholes
Dams

Sump Pump and Pit Installation

Our sump pump pit system is a high quality system at an economical price. Our system includes:

A deep sump liner with a lot of holes (to allow water to enter quickly)
Put plenty of clean ¾" gravel around the liner
Pit is flush to the basement floor with a lid
Cement is put around the outside of the pit (to give it a clean finish look)
We install a new 1/3h submersible sump pump and drain outside
All piping is included with a check valve


We have a wide range of battery back-up systems that can easily be added onto our sump pump system.

Excavation of Foundation Walls


At SafeStep Building Treatments Inc. one of our water control systems is excavation.


We have the equipment, the products, and the knowledge to do the job right from start to finish. From calling for locates to the final back-fill, we will look after it all.

After the initial excavation of your foundation, we:
  • Clean and prep the wall
  • Inspect wall and make necessary repairs
  • Apply the building code approved waterproofing system called TUFF-N-DRI*
  • Inspect perimeter drainage and evaluate
  • Back-fill with lots of ¾" clean gravel
  • Compacting soil every 2' when back-filling
  • Clean up and inspect
* TUFF-N-DRI consists of a flexible membrane with a premium foundation board, which protects, insulates, and drains.
