A sump pump system works directly with the waterproofing system to prevent water and moisture from entering your basement. This system works by channeling the water through the perimeter drainage system to the sump pump system, which then quickly pumps the water out of your home. The sump pump system is usually installed in the lowest part of your basement or crawl space to keep the area completely dry all the time.
If you are looking to keep your basement dry, you will need a sump pump system connected to your perimeter drainage system.
If your sump pump doesn’t work for any reason, your waterproofing system will fail and your basement may get wet. That is why you should use the highest quality sump pump systems available and make sure that it is regularly serviced.
At Basement & Radon Solutions , we recommend our GrateSump™ Sump Pump System. Our GrateSump™ Pump Liner has large punched holes that allow ground water to easily enter and to be pumped out and has a built-in pump stand which keeps dirt away from the sump pump impeller.
We always recommend adding battery backup protection to our GrateSump™ by upgrading to the GrateSump™ Plus or GrateSump™ Plus ll. It’s common sense, with heavy storms often come power outages.
