When dealing with basement waterproofing projects, the industry has changed over the years and more and more clients want to see specialist floor finishes in basements and the contractor wants to be able to bring into the sump chamber multiple inlet pipes to direct water into the chamber from multiple directions.
For many years the sump chamber really has not evolved along with other products that waterproof the basement.
Wykamol’s new Super sump chamber has many new benefits but clearly the most important one is the extended neck on the chamber.
This has the benefits of allowing the contractor to install the chamber and not having to worry about getting levels perfect at that time and not knowing sometimes when subcontracting what the floor finishes may be.
By installing Wykamol’s new Super sump, this problem area has been eliminated, it can be installed and cut down to suit levels after the waterproofing has been carried out.
The 250mm extended neck has specialist ribs set at 5mm increments so the contractor can jigsaw this down to suit the finish at a later stage, rather than currently having to build levels up to the chamber in some instances.
This will make life easier for the specialist contractor on site and save time rather than having the householder change their minds on finishes.
The chamber also has many new benefits, including 3 new perimeter channel inlets to direct channels straight into the chamber itself, alongside this there is ample space to include 100 mm and 50mm inlets.
A new silt grate system has been installed at moulding stage to allow silt to be kept away from the pump itself and direct any debris to the bottom of the tank and not get caught up in the impeller.
A new lid system has been designed that slots over the neck of the chamber and will accept standard 450mm inlaid or manhole chamber covers.
Alongside this Wykamol have also added in bolt down points on the bottom of the chamber to aid with installation in high water areas whilst waiting for the concrete to set or also to aid if the property wants the chamber sat in a concrete pit with other equipment.
Overall, this new chamber has many benefits that can help the specialist contractor in his basement waterproofing works.
