Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Failing Sump Pump Replaced in Ramsey, IL Basement
A sump pump in Ramsey, IL was not pumping water out of the basement correctly, so the WaterGuard System was first installed. These drainage pipes intercept water at the perimeter of the basement and drain it toward the TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which will drain water from WaterGuard and below the basement and discharge it out of the house. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system, which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. Next, the IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge System was installed. These discharge lines will allow water to escape if the pipes freeze over or become blocked for any reason. Lastly, a LawnScape Outlet was installed. This connects the discharge lines 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 can't hold the amount of water that is entering it and is failing to pump it all out.
Perimeter Drainage System
WaterGuard will drain any wall leaks and guide the water to the sump pump.
Sump Pump System
Included with the TripleSafe are two reliable cast-iron Zoeller pumps and a battery-backup UltraSump pump that will take over if the power goes out.
The patented design of the IceGuard automatically allows water to escape through its perforations when pipe terminations are blocked, usually by ice or snow.
Underground Downspout Extension
The LawnScape Outlet will release water from the gutters far from the house.
