Wet Basement Repairs
Over the years, we have spent a lot of time trying to understand how water enters basements and how to prevent them from leaking again. We have tried various methods and with years of trials and tribulations, we have taken the best out of each method and combined them into one great method we call “Our Guaranteed Method”.
It is called the guaranteed method because if you carefully follow every step of the process you will never have a flooded basement again! Our method is the ultimate waterproofing for basements! It allows you to address all your issues at once. While some contractors will solely promote repairs to be done from the inside, we strongly recommend the exterior basement waterproofing approach.
With the exterior method, because you are excavating the entire foundation wall you will be able to: repair foundation cracks, change the weeping tile, waterproof the foundation using tar, Blueskin membrane or Tremco waterproofing combined with added protection from Delta membrane. Once you have applied the correct foundation waterproofing and imported new backfill (if required) you can then adjust the entire landscaping so that water runs away from your house.
This is also a great time to repair the foundation’s parging! With a new weeping tile in place, I can assure you that you will be getting a lot more water in your sump pump system so make sure your sump pump is operating properly and consider the installation of either a battery backup sump pump or a water backup sump pump in the event the main pump fails or the power goes out.

This industry has long been an interest of mine. I enjoy the science behind wastewater treatment. It also fits in nicely with my wet-room philosophies in that you must understand water and its behavior to effectively get rid it.
Over the years we have come to understand all the various types of septic systems in use, from the common trench bed systems and filter bed systems to the more advanced tertiary systems such as Ecoflo, Bionest, EnviroSeptic and Eljen and for the most sensitive areas, we’ll design Phosphorus removal septic systems.
Understanding all these systems will allow us to service them efficiently and give us more options for designing a system that suits your environment.
In addition to system designing, we take pride in all your other septic system needs: septic tank pumping, septic tank cleaning, septic tank filter cleaning, sewage pump and effluent pump maintenance, distribution box adjustments (if equipped) as well as complete system inspections, if you are wondering how well the system is performing.
Our septic system designs and repairs we also offer septic system installations. If it’s a new septic tank that you need, we install both concrete septic tanks and plastic septic tanks. While I strongly recommend installing concrete tanks sometimes the situation requires a plastic tank and when it does, we use the industry’s toughest tanks, Roth!
These tanks are made by Roth Global Plastics and are my favorite. If it’s a drain field (aka septic bed or leaching field) you need, we’ve got you covered.
Our installations are always installed according to the Ontario Building Code and often we surpass their requirements. We understand what it takes to install a system that will last many many years and the big reason for this is because we’ve inspected many systems over the years and we’ve seen a pattern of mistakes that installers or homeowners are making.
Many installations have not followed the installation guidelines, which has led to system failures or premature failure of expensive investments. Avoid making these same mistakes and call Underground Solutions for ALL your septic system needs!

About North Bay
North Bay is a city in Northeastern Ontario, Canada. It is the seat of Nipissing District, and takes its name from its position on the shore of Lake Nipissing. North Bay developed as a railroad centre, and its airport was an important military location during the Cold War. == History == The site of North Bay is part of a historic canoe route where Samuel de Champlain took a party up the Ottawa River, through present-day Mattawa, on to Trout Lake and via the La Vase Creek to Lake Nipissing.Apart from Indigenous people, voyageurs and surveyors, there was little activity in the Lake Nipissing area until the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in 1882. That was the point where the Canada Central Railway (CCR) extension ended.
