Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Basement Leaking Due to Failing Sump System Repaired in Humboldt, IL
Water was entering a basement in Humboldt, IL, and the sump system was failing at pumping out this water. To solve these issues, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This system assures protection from all three problems that can occur with an ordinary pump. It can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a second pump that will help eliminate the water if the first pump can't keep up. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. It also features a removable airtight lid which reduces noise, prevents objects from falling in, and keeps moisture, insects, and odor from coming out of the sump. Next, the IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge System was installed. These discharge lines will allow water to escape if the pipes freeze or become blocked. Lastly, a LawnScape Outlet was installed. This connects the downspout to a special extension sending water away from the foundation while camouflaging the end of the pipe. This basement will remain dry and clean for years to come thanks to these systems!
This sump system is not pumping water out as it should and does not have a lid, releasing moisture into the basement.
