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.
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.
Our sump pump systems include the following features:
We also offer our IceGuard® anti-freeze device as an additional feature you can add on to your sump pump system:
Our most reliable sump pump system, 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!
An UltraSump® battery-powered pump is added to the SuperSump® system so the drainage system can operate when the power goes out. The battery backup system will recharge automatically.
For an effective and more economical solution, our SuperSump® Premier Pump System can help keep the basement dry.
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 be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
The SmartSump™ system is designed specifically for keeping crawl spaces dry and clean.
