After living in his house for two years, a homeowner in Proctorville, OH, was becoming concerned with the condition of the existing sump pump system.
The system is approximately 10 years old. While nothing major was wrong with it, the homeowner noticed the metal sump pit starting to deteriorate and sediment was accumulating. The system also lacked a lid, which can allow water in the pit to evaporate back into the basement. Debris and other objects also could fall in and damage or clog the system.
The homeowner wanted to make sure he would have a reliable system to always keep the basement dry, so he contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us online. We upgraded the older metal system to a newer plastic-based system that will not rust or corrode. The reliable UltraSump Battery Back-up system will always work to keep the basement dry.
Additional waterproofing solutions that were installed included an IceGuard attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, new downspout conductor lines, and LawnScape outlets to camouflage the ends of these lines. The open crawl space vents also were sealed with exterior vent covers.
The owner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable installations have helped him create a safer and healthier home that he will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.
While they have lived in their house for three years, homeowners in Lancaster, OH, recently began to consider how effective their existing sump pump was. They questioned if it would be able to withstand a great amount of seeping water, and they were interested in upgrading it to a newer system. They also noticed issues with their downspouts and exterior drainage.
The owners began to research how to address these issues, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them, and they then met with Inspector John Dean. John evaluated the condition of their existing systems, and he recommended upgrading to the “king” of sump pumps – the TripleSafe system.
Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then removed the older sump pump and installed the TripleSafe in its place. The TripleSafe, complete with three powerful pumps inside the liner and an external backup battery, will always operate to pump water out of the basement.
Field Supervisor Adam Kuhns and his crew also updated the exterior drainage system around the home by installing new downspout conductor lines.
The homeowners are happy to have new interior and exterior waterproofing systems that will keep their home dry.
After moving into their house two years ago, homeowners in Alexandria, OH, soon discovered their 100-year-old house had a leaking basement. Every time it rained, water would seep inside and damage their belongings. Even though they had a sump pump, it was failing adequately pump the leaking water out of the basement. It also lacked a proper lid.
Motivated to address this issue once and for all, the homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company through a happy customer and trusted friend.
We then installed the sub-floor WaterGuard interior drainage system that intercepts any seeping water. This water is then directed to the UltraSump pump that replaced the older sump pump system. The back-up battery ensures the sump pump will always operate, even in the event of a power outage. This system also was installed with the larger TripleSafe liner for easy future upgrades if the homeowners choose to do so.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable permanent solutions will always keep their basement dry.
While homeowners in Pataskala, OH, have lived in their house since it was built six years ago, they recently noticed a problem in their basement after heavy rains. Water leaked into several areas, leaving behind wet carpet and drywall.
The owners wanted to make sure their basement and home would be healthy and safe, so they started to research basement waterproofing systems. They found information about Ohio Basement Authority online and were eager to contact us for further guidance. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the leaking basement. Our inspector then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our crews, led by Foreman Valentin Rosales, first removed the existing drywall and insulation from the walls, and then began to install solutions including the WaterGuard interior drainage system, UltraSump Battery Backup System, CleanSpace wall system, and exterior IceGuard attachment.
WaterGuard was placed in the sub-floor to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water intercepted by WaterGuard is directed to the UltraSump system, which features two powerful pumps inside its liner along with an external backup battery. The UltraSump then pumps this water out of the home and away from the foundation. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked lines.
In place of the older insulation, we covered the walls with the CleanSpace wall system. CleanSpace typically is used to encapsulate crawl spaces, but it also is useful in basements. This thick and durable liner is completely waterproof, and it helps direct any seeping water from the walls down to the WaterGuard system in the floor.
The homeowners are happy to now have a more reliable basement waterproofing system to help keep their home safe and dry for many years to come.
Before selling their house, homeowners in Pataskala, OH, wanted to tackle several repair projects to improve the health, safety and resale value of the 100-year-old home.
One of their top items was addressing the sump pump system in the basement. This older system lacked a proper lid, which is dangerous for several reasons. Items can easily fall into the open pit and damage the pumping equipment; any water in the pit could evaporate back into the basement and contribute to moisture, humidity and mold growth; and the pit could overflow and flood the basement.
The homeowners heard about Ohio Basement Authority and were then motivated to contact us for further guidance. They met with Inspector Jiovanni Valentino who took a look at the old sump pump system and agreed with the need for an upgrade. Jiovanni then recommended one type of our many reliable sump pump systems.
One of our crews then removed the older sump pump system and replaced it with the SuperSump system. A powerful 1/3 hp pump is housed within the sump liner to help pump seeping water out of the basement. We used the larger liner for our TripleSafe system to allow for easy future upgrades. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding if the line freezes or becomes blocked.
The homeowners are happy to have a new sump pump system to help keep the basement dry.
