One of the most important features of a good sump pump system is the discharge line. The Healthy Spaces installation team is putting in solid, rigid PVC discharge line. A rigid discharge line will not crush or deform when the fill soils are replaced and the soil is tamped down. Second, a good discharge system needs to be resistant to freezing. The Healthy Spaces team installed ice guards on this discharge system to prevent freezing and cracking. Third, a discharge line needs to direct water as far as possible from the foundation to prevent groundwater from flowing back into the basement. Fourth, a discharge line needs to have a safe, effective, and clog resistant end cap. The Healthy Spaces team is installing lawnscapes at the ends of these discharge lines.
