BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System
Confronting a leaky, moist basement is a common challenge for homeowners. It not only compromises a safe living space but also poses a threat to your home’s structural foundation.
Introducing Mount Valley Foundation Services’ AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System—a reliable, enduring answer to your basement moisture problems. As a distinguished name in basement waterproofing across South Carolina and Western North Carolina, we offer a customized drainage solution designed to meet your specific needs.
This page outlines why our uniquely engineered interior drainage system is your first line of defense in maintaining a dry basement and protecting your home.
What is AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage?
At Mount Valley Foundation Services, we know the difficulties faced when conventional drainage solutions fall short, leading to a damp basement.
That’s where our innovative solution steps in. AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage is a sophisticated system installed along the interior boundary of your basement. It efficiently channels water seeping from walls or joints to your sump pump for removal.
Strategically installed above the footing and clear of the “mud zone”, it guarantees an anti-clog design. A 3/8” wall flange ensures any wall leakage is directed into the BasementGutter™ system.
Our drainage system is a fundamental element of a comprehensive home waterproofing strategy, ensuring your peace of mind and a healthy living environment.

- Accumulated water in your basement
- Dampness on basement walls
