This Guilford, CT basement had an old, exposed sump pump system that was in danger of clogging which would result in a flooded basement. We installed a new TripleSafe Sump Pump System to replace it which includes an airtight lid, primary pump, secondary pump, and battery backup sump pump.
When water seeped into this Madison, CT basement, it had no place to go. To drain it away and get it out of the house, we installed the SuperSump sump pump and WaterGuard perimeter drain. WaterGuard, which is underneath the freshly poured cement, will catch water coming from the outside before it enters the basement. It then flows to the SuperSump pump. With its Zoeller ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, it will keep the basement dry for years to come!
Before, this Avon, CT basement had an open space where the stairs connected to the Bilco door. Not only was this an eyesore, but it would let in an uncomfortable draft, welcome critters to the basement, and allow water seepage to the space. The homeowner wanted a dry, pleasant basement in order to sell his home.
The solution we provided was to install a full perimeter WaterGuard system paired with TrenchDrains and a TripleSafe sump pump. In addition, our Total Basement Finishing door was installed. A warrantied door will help prevent the uncomfortable drafts, water from entering the space and deter critters, too! With this dry and pleasant basement, the homeowner was able to sell his home within two months.
When we arrived in this basement, it was humis and wet. The existing sump pump was insufficient, and wasn't able to dry out the space when it rained. We replaced the old pump with our TripleSafe system. The TripleSafe includes a primary pump, secondary pump in case of heavy water, and a backup battery pump. Alongside the SaniDry dehumidifier, the TripleSafe system created a dry basement!
Whenever it rained, water used to flow through the basement hatchway and into the house. We installed the TrenchDrain drainage system to keep water from entering the home. Water flows into the grates of the TrenchDrain, where it is redirected to the sump pump system to be pumped out of the home. The owners never have to worry about their basement flooding from the hatchway again!
