MoistureLevel® regulates soil moisture to protect against expansive soils and over-drying.
While foundation heave and expansive soils can be difficult to diagnose, it is important to prevent these issues by eliminating soil moisture.
Luckily, Arizona Foundation Solutions has developed the MoistureLevel® Smart Foundation System, which was designed to alleviate expansive soils beneath concrete slab foundations!

Our system is more effective than other foundation heave repair methods.
The MoistureLevel® Smart Foundation System borrows from our reliable radon mitigation technology, using a vacuum and ventilation pipe to create air movement as well as suction on the under-slab soil. Introducing outside air to the damp, expansive soils causes evaporation to take place, making it possible to reduce soil moisture and as a result, damaging soil expansion.
We use the dry air to collect moisture and then vent it out the stack. As the soil becomes drier, it begins to suck the moisture out of the adjacent clays. When clays begin to dry out, they develop cracks, which then dries out the soil near the crack. This causes the expansion to deepen and make more cracks, continuing a self-reinforcing cycle. Over time, the clays begin to lose their moisture and cease to expand and in many cases reverse.
The MoistureLevel® Smart Foundation System has protections to minimize any over-drying near the footing area. It also has a smart mechanism that monitors the soil moisture content and regulates the drying to protect from over-drying.
The system is easy to install, usually taking less than a day. MoistureLevel® is also the more affordable option, costing 1/10th less than other, faulty heave control methods and have the following benefits:
