In Oakland City, IN, the homeowner was having a problem with their basement leaking. The problems did not start until the tornado had struck near their home, and the rain storm had also flooded about three inches. Upon inspection of the home, their old sump pump was located outside, Having a sump pump outside will not solve leaking problems since water from the outside could also flood the sump pump. Sump pumps are encouraged to be installed indoors, where the weather can does not affect them and it will successfully pump water out of the basement.
Since the homeowners had dealt with heavy rain in the past, the past, the TripleSafe sump pump was the best choice for this case. The TripleSafe sump pump is the king of all sump pumps due to the ability to store three sump pumps in one liner. Pump one is a high-quality Zoeller pump. Pump two is set a bit higher in the sump hole, that turns on in the event the first pump would fail or can not keep up. The second pump is more powerful and has a separate discharge line. Pump three is a battery-operated UltraSump pump that kicks in if the power goes out. The homeowner was relieved to know that their new sump pump system will keep their basement dry from future storms.
