While doing some work on Allen’s and Monica’s home, our Eco-Seal team – in the middle of digging – discovered what seemed to be an old and overgrown patio.
Preparations to remove it, though, soon revealed more than meets the eye: it was actually the cover to a large cistern holding tank. It had to stay in place, or we’d do some significant damage.
Eco-Seal adapted midstream to avoid additional problems for the customer; we brought in a much smaller backhoe and even did some hand digging to access the foundation without damaging the tank.
In addition to keeping water out of the basement and their foundation in good shape, Allen and Monica ended up with a new patio space in their backyard.
