Years of water leaks had found its way inside. The homeowner wanted to utilize his basement but knew that the space was susceptible to damage.
One of the reasons that water would remain in this space was due to the old sump pump. The sump pump was the home's only means of water protection, and once the system stopped working it wasn't serving its purpose.
Under the Stairs
Water can take a toll on any space, especially the foundation of a home. In this basement specifically, the walls had begun to chip and develop cracks.
Over time water will weaken the walls and cause them to crack, bow, and/ or crumble. Thankfully this homeowner took action before severe repairs were needed.
The TwinPack sump was the replacement pump for the old sump. The TwinPack sump pump is a two system sump pump that will be able to handle over 2,000 gallons of water per hour.
WaterGuard drains were installed in the perimeter of the basement to collect pesky water leaks and direct them towards the new TwinPack system.
