Fast Track Basement System Installation Guide

Installing fast track basement waterproofing system

The SMARTER basement waterproofing system that SAVES TIME, which SAVES MONEY.

Fast Track Basement System our most versatile basement waterproofing system. Fast Track is a hybrid, new generation drain tile. Fast Track Basement System requires half the work of drain tile and runs faster and more efficiently. Never use old-fashioned pipe and gravel again with Fast Track’s innovate design. Fast Track’s unique design allows it to be installed next to the footing, like drain tile, or on top of the footing. When installing next to footing use Drain-Eze XL black dimpled board. When installing on top of footing use Rim-Skirt.

Fast Track Installation On Top Of Footing (with the Drain-Eze XL):

Trenching basement for waterproofing system

Step 1: Install sump basin in desired location and cut holes for 4″ round Fast Track sump drop connection. Starting at the sump, remove concrete floor on top of footing and 6″ past footing and 4″ deep.

Step 2: For block wall foundations, drill weep holes into empty cells in the bottom row of blocks 1/2″ to 1″ above footing. No weep holes needed for poured wall foundations.

Digging trench for basement waterproofing system

Step 3: Before pouring rock into trench, dig out 2″ of dirt under existing concrete floor to then fill with rock. This will help prevent moisture wicking between the concrete seams.

Step 4: Pour pea rock into the trench. Grade the rock to pitch the Fast Track main sections toward the sump pump system.

footing.

Step 10: Tack the Drain-Eze XL into place with 1-2 concrete nails, which will prevent the Drain-Eze XL from moving will pouring the trowling the concrete. You will see small round recesses in the vertical slotted section of the Drain-Eze XL to indicate where to tack the concrete nails into so they will be below the new concrete when poured.

Step 11: Install Fast Track tee between 2 main sections next to the sump pit. Use a small section of the Fast Track channel to direct the tee out to the pit and connect the Fast Track sump drop to the end. This drops down the level of the system and converts the opening to a 4-inch round to connect directly into the side of the sump basin.
