Open and inefficient sump pump. The sump should have an airtight lid on it to prevent water from evaporating out of the sump hole into your basement, to stop stuff from falling in that can clog the pump or switch, and to quiet the system.
Old sump pump before replacement.
Here you can see where we've excavated for the liner and pump to be placed in. Doing this protects their sump pump from the mud and debris around the pump pit. We back-fill with gravel around the sump liner to ensure the sump pump system stays as clean as possible.
TripleSafe Sump Pump after it has been completed.
Here you can see that both discharge lines from the TripleSafe are protected by the IceGuard sump pump discharge line.
We installed IceGuard which prevents frozen or clogged discharge lines. If the pipe underground freezes in the winter, water can still be pumped out without the worry of backups in your basement!
