  • Twin Pack Protects Troy, IL Home From Water Damage
    Twin Pack Protects Troy, IL Home From Water Damage

    A Troy, IL homeowner reached out to Woods Basement Systems concerned about flooding in their basement and unsightly water damage. They met with Design Specialist Chris A. and received a free estimate on the ideal way to keep the basement dry at all times.

    Team Woods installed a Twin Pack sump pump system to remove water from the home before it causes any damage. Twin Pack uses dual, cast-iron Zoeller pumps for double protection, and it works well with just about every drainage system. For waterproofing you can count on, Twin Pack can help!

  • Sump Pit Moving and Install in Smithton, IL

    Smithton, Illinois homeowner Pam kept getting water in her basement even with a sump pump. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Adam R. developed the perfect plan for her. 

    Foreman Vern and his crew moved her sump pit from the center of the floor to the lowest point in the corner. They then installed a new TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard. These two systems together will work to keep the basement dry through heavy rain, power outages, plumbing breaks, and more. 

    Pam now has a dry basement she no longer worries about.
