Smart Vent® Foundation Flood Vents is what your home is in need of if you have experienced flood damage previously or are in a flood-prone location. Flood Vents protect buildings in flood-prone areas by preventing hydrostatic pressure, which is what destroys walls and foundations. Through installing Smart Vent® Foundation Flood Vents you will no longer need to worry about the chance of foundation failure when the next big storm hits.
What Makes Smart Vent® so Smart?
Smart Vents® line of Flood Vents are designed to fully protect your home or building from hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is what builds up when the flood waters are surrounding your foundation walls. This pressure eventually causes the foundation to become destroyed. Smart Vent® Flood Vents avoid this hydrostatic pressure by using a mitigation technique, referred to as Wet Floodproofing. This technique allows floodwater to flow freely through an enclosure such as a garage or crawlspace.
How it works is when flood water rises around your foundation, the rising water will activate the internal floats on the Flood Vent. When the internal floats are activated, the door will unlatch and open, allowing water to flow through a 3-inch clearance. The 3-inch clearance will allow not only water but debris to flow through as well. A normal air vent will clog debris that passes through the water. Through these Smart Vents®, you will be able to equalize the flood water pressure around your home, which can ultimately save your foundation.
