This Shepherdsville, KY basement was experiencing flooding while a new Waterguard system was being installed. In order to keep the basement from fully flooding, the installation crew left the existing sump pump in place while completing the installation. In the first image, you can see the old sump pump had some definite design flaws. First, the sump pump discharge lines are bent, slowing the evacuation of water from the basement. Second, there isn't an airtight lid, which has lead to an increased relative humidity and higher risk of mold. The new Super Sump Pump system that you can see installed in the second image, has a straight discharge line, a powerful pump, and an airtight lid. Now that the new sump pump is in place, the old pump will be removed and the hold filled in.
Really long lasting sump pumps are hard to find on your own, which can mean that you're replacing pumps frequently, or you're dealing with pump failure and the resulting flooding. These homeowners had dealt with both issues and felt that it was time to get a professional quality, long lasting pump with a warranty. The Basement Systems Super Sump is a cast-iron sump pump with the longest-lasting battery backup pump in the industry. The pump is constructed of a rigid durable plastic that is designed to house a sump pump and will not mold or bend. It's an all in one number--an existing pump basket, a durable lid, and quality components. The homeowner said, "I was really impressed with the [Zoeller] pump that Healthy Spaces installed. The waterproofing system is top notch and I feel like I can rely on this pump."
If you're like me, going into a crawl space is the last thing that I want to do. But when it comes to the health of your home and your family, this is the worst thing to do! Without a reliable sump pump system in your crawl space, the space will still be vulnerable to groundwater, as well as unnoticed plumbing leaks.
For this Clarkson, KY homeowner, we installed our SmartSump Crawl Space Sump Pump. Coming equipped with a sump alarm and an optional battery backup, it is exactly what you need to ensure your crawl space is staying dry all the time! Should you have any water from a plumbing leak, it first passes by the alarm, then drains into the sump pump. The alarm will sound so you know you have a leak in your crawl space - giving you peace of mind knowing you're protected.
There are different levels of water intrusion in a basement. Some basements just leak a little and it doesn't feel like much of a big deal. Other basements have consistent flooding that can really fill up the space with water in no time! Because there are different amounts of water intrusion, there are different levels of sump pumps. The most powerful sump pump on the market is the TripleSafe sump pump. The rugged plastic body hold not one but three pumps set at different heights to handle every level of water intrusion possible. The first pump is for the regular water load that comes in rain or shine. The second pump is set higher up to help pump when a sudden rainstorm starts filling the basket quickly. Finally, there's a third pump even higher up that runs on a battery back up and can kick on if the pump is overwhelmed.
Joe in Loogootee, IN, had water issues in his basement. He said it looked like someone tried to previously install some interior drainage in the past but it's not working. After doing some research on Google and coming across all of Healthy Spaces Google reviews, he decided to give us a call to schedule his free inspection.
Our team installed a perimeter drainage system, along with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Our TripleSafe comes equipped with an airtight lid, primary pump, secondary pump, and a battery backup sump pump. Installing a drainage system with our sump pump system, this will keep Joe's basement dry with triple the protection.
