This page guides you through our exclusive basement waterproofing solutions and illustrates how they enhance your well-being and overall quality of life, empowering you to make the optimal choice for your residence. 

What is the AquaStop™ Basement Dehumidifier? 

The AquaStop™ Basement Dehumidifier System represents cutting-edge dehumidification technology engineered to tackle basement humidity issues with precision. 

Capable of extracting up to 100 pints of moisture from the air every day and circulating over 300 cubic feet of dry air per minute to dry out even the largest basements quickly and efficiently, this system delivers powerful performance. Despite its high efficiency, it boasts a sleek, compact design, eliminating the bulkiness often associated with traditional dehumidifiers. 

As an integral component of our comprehensive basement waterproofing and humidity control solution, our system tackles water seepage through interior drainage and sump pump systems, while also addressing vapor intrusion with a robust wall vapor barrier. The final step involves the installation of a dehumidifier in your basement to eliminate residual humidity. 

This holistic approach ensures a dry, healthy environment not only in your basement but throughout your entire home as well.

Is a Basement Dehumidifier Necessary? 

Yes, a basement dehumidifier is a vital necessity, not just a luxury. Lingering humidity in basements can lead to mold growth, structural damage, escalating repair costs, and an unhealthy home. 

Conventional dehumidifiers are not powerful enough to handle large basements and copious amounts of moisture. They also require frequent emptying, which can be inconvenient and messy. 

BQ Basements & Concrete’s AquaStop™ Basement Air System is a powerful and efficient dehumidifier that can actively drain moisture from the air and control the environment in your basement. It is an essential part of our whole-home solution to help you avoid the challenges of basement humidity.

The AquaStop™ Air System presents a host of benefits, which include:

  • Whole-Home Benefits: The reduction of humidity in your basement translates to a drier and healthier environment throughout your entire home. This helps prevent the spread of moisture-related issues to upper levels.
