Sump Pumps Photo Album: Waterproofing a Basement in Buckhannon, West Virginia
Basement Systems of West Virginia was called to perform a free inspection and estimate at a home with water problems. The homeowner had struggled for years with a useless basement. The water kept coming in the basement through the floors. The skilled Systems Design Specialist determined that the basement needed the WaterGuard system and a TripleSafe sump pump.
The crews began their work by digging out along the inside perimeter of the foundation to make room for the WaterGuard system. The WaterGuard system is engineered not to sit in the dirt, so clogging from silt and sediment under the floor is not a problem. It also has a special wall flange that creates a neat space between the floor and the wall to drain any wall seepage, without allowing dirt and debris from the floor to enter. The WaterGuard system is applicable to all types of foundations.
The TripleSafe sump pump is hooked to the WaterGuard. The TripleSafe sump pump is the most reliable pumping system on the market today. The sump pump has three pumps to give complete protection. If the first pump fails, the second takes over. If the first pump can’t keep up with water, the second will run at the same time. The third pump is for if the power goes out, it is battery operated.
The homeowner is very happy with Basement Systems of West Virginia. Not only is the space useable, but it also gives the homeowner peace of mind, which is priceless.
