Problem: Even newer homes can have problem basements. This basement often felt damp and smelled musty. Excess water vapour was entering the space from the unsealed sump pump lid.
Solution: To help control humidity, we installed the super quiet and efficient SaniDry™ Sedona Dehumidifier. It’s connected directly to their updated sump pump system, so with regular maintenance, these homeowners will never have to worry about excess moisture or a damp feeling basement again.
Problem: These homeowners had an old sump pump system and pit which was open, creating a humid environment in the home. They were also experiencing some drainage problems and cracks in their basement floor.
Solution: We successfully installed a new SuperSump+™ Sump Pump System. We moved the location of their sump pump, filled in the old pit, filled the floor cracks, and improved their drainage system.
Problem: An open sump pump pit is an undesirable feature in homes: but especially when it’s located within a dirt floor crawl space. Dirt and debris can easily enter the pit causing the pump to clog and malfunction. The open pit adds unwanted excess humidity in an already challenging environment.
Solution: Our crew installed the Triple Safe™ sump pump and pit liner; a sump pump system designed for crawl spaces. This pump is fully compatible with our complete crawl space vapour barrier system, which the homeowners also had installed.
With regular yearly maintenance, these homeowners now enjoy the comfort of knowing their sump pump system is efficient, working and reliable!
Problem: These Dutton homeowner had a major leak during the wet Spring months that resulted in their entire basement flooding.
Solution: We installed a perimeter drain in the floor along the problem basement walls. We also installed the ThermalDry® Wall system as well as our TripleSafe Sump pump system to ensure these homeowners a peace of mind come the following Spring.
Problem: This home had a problem with flooding in the crawl space, creating wet, undesirable environment
Solution: An important element of a dry crawl space is a reliable sump pump system. Without one, a crawl space will still be vulnerable to groundwater, as well as unnoticed plumbing leaks. Our SmartSump system is designed for crawl spaces.
Inspector: Adam M
Problem: The existing sump system had no lid, one pump and a water-powered back-up pump. Water-powered back-ups have proven to be unreliable due to how slowly they pump, the need of excessive maintenance and of course the risk they hold as they introduce more water into our basement space.
Solution: Install a unit with two submersible pumps on seperate discharge lines (very important) and a battery back-up system. This battery back-up uses a maintenance-free deep-cell battery, which is designed to give a little bit of power over a long period of time- the opposite of a car battery.
Problem: This small concrete crock houses an inefficient pump. It's very small and any rush of water could flood the basement.
Solution: We removed the concrete crock and installed our attractive, large Super Sump unit.
Problem: This basement was wet and damp in the area near the sump pump. The old sump pit was open, allowing excess moisture into the already damp basement environment, and the older pump simply wasn’t powerful enough to work effectively. The unlined pit allowed dirt and debris to clog the old pump.
Solution: Our team waterproofed the leaky walls near the sump pump, dug out and formed a new pit, installed a TripleSafe Liner and inserted the super powerful Zoeller 1/3 hp sump pump.
With this serious upgrade and regular maintenance, these homeowners are assured that their basement will stay healthy and dry – permanently!
Problem: This sump pump does not have an air-tight lid and is letting lots of humidity into the basement because water is almost always resting in the bottom of the sump liner.
Solution: We installed a customer lid, a new submersible pump and a battery back-up pumping system.
Problem: This home in Port Lambton had significant and ongoing problems with water entering their basement even during modest rainfalls. Their old sump pump system was outdated, unreliable and needed replacement. The basement environment and the entire home was affected by this humid basement with musty smells and a damp feeling.
Solution: This was an incredible transformation! Our team waterproofed the leaky walls, installed a perimeter drain, installed the best sump pump system on the market (with a battery backup in case of a power outage!) and finished it off with BrightWall® panels. BrightWall® is a 100% waterproof rigid plastic panelling for unfinished basement walls. It's durable, washable, and will not support the growth of mould or rot.
These homeowners will now enjoy their clean and dry basement and healthier home.
Problem: These home owners were experiencing water penetrating into their unfinished basement. Their sump pump system was older, unreliable and contributing to an unhealthy level of humidity in the home.
Solution: Our team waterproofed the problematic walls, installed the ThermalDry® Wall system (which protects the basement from moisture and water as it passes through foundation walls – it serves as both a vapor barrier and as a way to redirect leaking water into the new drainage system). We completed the basement with the reliable and industry leading TripleSafe™ sump pump system.
This before and after is a great example of how all of our products work together for a dry basement. With regular maintenance, these home owners will never have basement water problems again!
Problem: This multi-level home had one area which was a dirt floor crawl space. As with any lower level, this means water can penetrate up from the ground and cause water damage and excessive moisture.
Solution: Our team installed a Super Sump: a sump pump designed for crawl spaces to remove the water in the ground. Our team also installed a CleanSpace vapour barrier, encapsulating the area; to keep the moisture and humidity levels down in the crawl space.
What a transformation!
Problem: These homeowners needed a sump pump upgrade! Their old pump:
Solution: Our superior TripleSafe Sump Pump System is the perfect fit and fix for this home!
This system includes the following features and benefits:
Problem: An open sump pit, an older and singular sump pump equated to problems for this homeowner in Tecumseh.
Solution: A dependable sump pump is one of the most important components of a dry basement.Our Advanced Basement Systems team installed the superior TripleSafe Sump Pump Kit. The TripleSafe provides three levels of protection; 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.
All housed in a sealed pump liner – to keep humidity down in the basement.
Problem: Sump pump not able to keep up. Flooding occured.
Solution: Basement Systems SuperSump installed with air tight lid, water watch alarm and perforated liner.
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.
For an effective and more economical solution, consider our SuperSump® Premier Pump System. It is engineered to help keep the basement dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement. The SuperSump® can also be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
If you have had occasional water issues but not a severe flood, the SuperSump® may be the ideal option for your home. This complete system provides total protection, and like all of our sump pump systems, works perfectly with our drainage systems.
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.
