Bigger Better Sump Pump in Manchester, MO

Bigger Better Sump Pump in Manchester, MO

Bigger Better Sump Pump in Manchester, MO Bigger Better Sump Pump in Manchester, MO

Single sump pumps do not work well during power outages, as this Manchester, Missouri homeowner found out.  Our #1 service call issue is that after years and years of dependable pumping service, the single sump pump finally dies...usually during a thunderstorm, yikes!  Our TripleSafe® sump pump system comes with a sealed lid, high water level alarm, radon functioning floor drain, and three pumps with pump stands and battery backup.

When we installed the new sump pump in this home, we found silt/dirt in the bottom of the sump pump pit.  The pump stands within the TripleSafe® helps the pumps only pump out water and not the mud.

This unsightly sump pump in Manchester, MO was not getting the job done, leaving the resident with a wet basement.  Basic and cheap sump pumps aren't always reliable and seem to fail when they are needed most.  With the TripleSafe sump pump, if the first pump can't handle all the water, the second pump kicks in.  If the power goes out, the battery-operated third pump pumps the water out and away from the house.  No matter the situation, the TripleSafe results in a dry basement and a happy customer.

Fast and Effective Concrete Lifting and Leveling

The major flaw of concrete is that the ground that it was poured on top of will inevitably shift and sink over time. In the states of Illinois and Missouri sinking concrete is all too common which is why our company has gone to great lengths to develop fast and effective concrete lifting and leveling solutions. PolyLevel is a revolutionary product that is minimally invasive and not only lifts and levels concrete but also stabilizes it. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab, then the PolyLevel polymer is poured into the holes. After only about 15 minutes the polymer is dry and the concrete is ready to be walked and even driven on. This concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster, less disruptive and arguably more effective than mud jacking which is the procedure PolyLevel replaces. To removed tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling estimate contact us today!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
