Basement Systems Waterguard Drain Tile Question


http://www.basementsystems.com/basem...aterguard.html

Can someone help me find a way to acquire about 150ft of this stuff? I am looking to waterproof my basement and have decided that the product in the link above would be the best for my situation and I really want to get it.

The problem is, there is only one company (a franchise) in town who sells it and they only sell it installed - which is QUITE PRICEY.

Anyone know of an alternative way to get this stuff? Or know of another product that is very similar?

The availability is poor and the price is high(for what you get) when you go with a franchised "gimmick" product.

There are better and cheaper ways, but they take more of your effort.

Somebody has to pay for the patents, advertising and a specialized product and that ends up being the end user.

here's what we use when faced w/wtrproofing monopour footer/floors,,, its easily modified to fit your situation,,, [ NO financial interest ] http://waterproof.com/DIY-flooded-ba...-pressure.html,,, what we like is the floor's still its original thickness when replaced so probability increases the new/old conc jnt will more easily resist random cracking

you're welcome !
