Completing the Waterproofing and Tarps in Place

We dodged another bullet with the weather today.  But the tarps are in place and we’re prepared for the rain.

The isulation is now around the complete foundation, except the stairwell and window well, which are not to be insulated.  Ready to finish off the waterproofing now.

The Little Giant fiberglass sewage ejector tank was delivered today.  It is 36 inches in diameter and approximately 37 inches deep.  There will be two pumps in the sewage ejector, with a safety alarm.

Water Management Plan

Our water management plan included using the vertical culvert to gather the water from the foundation drains (under the waterproofing) and to pump that water into the swimming pool.  After letting any sediments settle, we will then pump the clean water directly to the storm drain.

Given the pump has been running quite a bit lately, it was time to check the status of the water level in the swimming pool.  Jorge and Bryan lifted the 4 ft section of the pool cover and, yes, the water had started to accumulate in the swimming pool.
