This Westville, Illinois sump pump was outdated and inefficient. Woods Basement Systems installed a new sump pump with a battery backup. The battery backup means that even if the power goes out during a storm the sump pump will continue to run and keep water from filling the basement. Woods Basement Systems also offers several other waterproofing options to ensure that water nevers makes it inside the home.
Standing water in a crawl space can attract pests and foster mold growth. James M. of Danville, IL was having pest problems in his crawl space, as can be seen in the picture. He had a pump in his crawl space that was no longer working and left water standing in his crawl space so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended encapsulating the crawl space.
Woods replaced the old, non functioning sump pump with the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe has three pumps, including a battery backup pump, sitting in a sump liner that forms an airtight seal with the rest of the encapsulation system. The TripleSafe ensures that the crawl space will remain dry, even in heavy downpours and power outages.
Danville, Illinois homeowner James M. was troubled by water pooling in his crawlspace. The water created a musty, moldy environment. System Design Specialist Kevin E. designed a solution to keep the water and mold out of his crawlspace.
Foreman Josh B. and his team installed the CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation system. CleanSpace is an inorganic vapor barrier, so it does not support mold growth. CleanSpace guides water to the TripleSafe sump pump system. TripleSafe is equipped with a main pump, backup pump and batter-powered pump so the crawlspace will stay dry.
James is thrilled to have a restored crawlspace that he knows willo stay dry.
Warren and Kathy K. of Paris, Illinois were sick of their musty, wet basement. Though they had a sump pump, it was inconveintly place and their basement was still wet.
Foreman Melvin F. installed the TripleSafe sump pump system in the corner of their basement and filled in the previous sump hole. The TripleSafe sump pump system is equipped with three pumps to ensure their basement stays dry. Additionally, it is sealed tight so no moisture escapes from the pump into the basement. Warren and Kathy can now enjoy their dry basement with no musty smell.
Barbie and Don L. of Robinson, IL kept getting water in their basement. They had a sump pump but it was no longer working so they called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended a basement waterproofing system.
As part of the waterproofing system installed, Woods replaced the old sump pump with the TripleSafe. Unlike the old sump pump lid that had a hole in it, as shown in the picture, the TripleSafe has an airtight lid that won’t allow water in the pit to evaporate and raise the humidity in the basement. It contains three powerful pumps, including a batter back up pump, to ensure water is always being pumped out of the basement, even in the worst weather conditions or power outages.
The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
The ⅓ hp primary pump can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head, while the ½ hp secondary pump can discharge as much as 3,900 additional gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head. In the case of a tripped circuit, power outage, or sump failure, your TripleSafe™'s UltraSump® Battery Backup System will kick in. A second battery can be hooked up to a single system for an even longer running time. All told, this system provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.
If you're looking for a crawl space sump pump solution, the SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System is the ideal option. The SmartSump™ is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. The SmartSump™ comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump. This sump pump is designed to fit with the CleanSpace® liner and has a sump alarm to ensure you are always aware of any water in your crawl space.
The SmartSump™ system comes with a reliable Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower sump pump capable of pumping 2,500 gallons per hour at a 5-foot head. This system is designed to fit with our crawl space encapsulation system, ensuring that you have a completely dry, clean crawl space.
Of course, in many cases water issues in the basement are caused by severe weather that can knock out power. With that in mind, we created the UltraSump® Battery Backup System to ensure continued protection no matter what happens. In the event of loss of power the battery backup will automatically kick in and begin removing water from your basement, preventing a flood. The UltraSump® system can pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery, which is enough water to fill a small swimming pool!
The battery backup also comes with an alarm to alert you in case of power failure, sounding when the backup pump is running and silencing when power is restored. This alarm also protects you in case the main system is accidently unplugged, which could otherwise leave your basement unprotected. The UltraSump® can outlast generic backup pumps many times over, and an additional battery can be attached for further protection.
These key additional features will provide you with total peace of mind

Our sump pump systems include the following features:
WaterWatch® Alarm: Sounds off to let you know if water has risen past the point where the pumps should have turned on.
SuperLiner Sump Liner: Large enough to keep your sump pump working properly without turning on and off repeatedly, but not so large that your liner goes too deep, making your sump pump wear out prematurely as it pumps out unnecessary water.
Airtight Sump Lid: An airtight lid keeps odors and humidity out, while protecting your sump from debris from the basement floor. Rubber grommets around all pipes and wires help maintain the airtight lid and also help to keep all PVC pipes steady and quiet.
CleanPump Stands: These sump pump stands are installed to raise the pumps off of the bottom of the liner. Any silt or sediment that settles on the bottom of your sump pit will be kept away from your pump. These stands also allow for height adjustment of the pump if necessary.
IceGuard® Discharge Line Protection: Many sump pump discharge lines are susceptible to freezing during the cold winter months. Our IceGuard® discharge line protector is the solution to this problem! This specifically designed grated adapter is located outside where the discharge line exits the house. If the pipe underground freezes in the winter, water can still be pumped out without the worry of backups into your basement! *Note: The IceGuard® does not come standard with our sump pump systems.
Sump pumps should always be installed with a perimeter drain system to ensure that all water is drained to the sump pit and removed from the basement.
