Homeowners in South Vienna, OH, currently have a dry basement, but they’re not sure how long that is going to last. They have experienced several sump pump failures in recent years, and they wanted to know that the system would be able to keep water out of the basement.

Motivated to have the issue addressed once and for all, the owners started to look into updating their sump pump system. After seeing some of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they were eager to contact us to learn more about our services and how we could help them. They met with Inspector Clark Sturgill, and he assessed the condition of the existing sump pump system. Clark then recommended one of our reliable sump pumps.

One of our crews then visited to remove the outdated, failing system with the UltraSump Battery Backup System. The UltraSump features a powerful 1/3 hp cast iron pump with a metal float switch inside the heavy-duty polyethylene liner. It also is equipped with a DC pump, charging system and battery, and will automatically turn on if the primary pump fails to operate. The UltraSump can pump out 11,500 gallons of water on a new, fully-charged battery. The back-up battery also enables the system to continue to operate even in the event of a power outage.

This system was installed using the larger TripleSafe liner, which allows for easy future upgrades.

The homeowners can now rest easier knowing this reliable system will keep their home safe and dry for many years to come.

Job Stories From South Vienna, OH
Keeping a Basement Dry in South Vienna, OH, With a New Sump Pump System

After living in their house for almost 20 years, homeowners in South Vienna, OH, began to question the condition of their basement. While it appeared to be dry, they continued to have problems with sump pump failure.

The owners wanted to make sure a reliable system would keep their basement dry, so they started to look into how to upgrade this essential system. After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they were eager to contact us for further assistance. They met with one of our inspectors, and he suggested one of our trustworthy sump pump systems.

After removing the older system, one of our crews installed the UltraSump Battery Backup System. Along with two powerful pumps inside the liner, the system also features an external backup battery. This battery ensures the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement, even during power outages.

The homeowners are happy to have an updated system that will keep their basement dry for many years to come.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Enhances Health of a Home for New Owners in South Vienna, OH

He just purchased his house in South Vienna, OH, but the new homeowner was beginning to notice issues with moisture and dampness throughout the house. Concerned for his health and the health of his home, he wanted to address these issues right away.

After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority online, he contacted us to investigate the source. One of our experienced inspectors completed a thorough evaluation of the home and concluded the problems originated from the vented crawl space area under the home.

The homeowner was eager for one of our expert crews to encapsulate the crawl space in durable CleanSpace liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CleanSpace completely isolates the home from the earth and acts as a moisture and vapor barrier. SilverGlo panels also were installed on the walls to help further insulate the crawl space. Several vent covers were placed over the vents to prevent outside air, precipitation and pests from entering the crawl space.

The homeowner now has a healthier crawl space and home he will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in South Vienna, OH

A home in South Vienna, OH, had a very musty odor for two years. The homeowner was tired of the smell and worried about her health, so she called Ohio Basement Authority for a solution.

One of our certified inspectors looked at the crawl space and knew that this was the source of the problem. He explained the crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation products we have, and how these would eliminate the smell and create a healthier living space.

The homeowner decided to go with CleanSpace Liner, SmartPipe, SilverGlo, SaniDry CX, and SmartSump.

CleanSpace is a thick plastic liner used to isolate the crawl space from moisture, dirt, and pests.

SmartPipe is specially designed crawl space drainage system. It has holes on the top and front and lays under a filer fabric to accept water from the soil and the surface of the crawl space.

SilverGlo is a series of panels with high heat retention which insulates the crawl space. These make a home more comfortable and less expensive to own.

SaniDry CX is a basement air system designed to remove moisture from the air and filter it. The CX system is a smaller version which fits inside a crawl space.

SmartSump is a sump pump system which is specially designed for crawl spaces. It includes an airtight lid for easy access and so water sitting in the sump doesn't constantly evaporate back into the crawl space.

The installation crew came in and installed these products in three days. This short period eliminated the odor this homeowner had been dealing with for two years, and created a healthier environment for her and her family.

Water Leaking in 1920's Farmhouse in South Vienna, OH

Homeowners in South Vienna, OH started experiencing dampness and wet floors in the basement of their farmhouse built in the 1920's. The basement was used for storage, so they were worried about their belongings becoming wet and waterlogged. Because of this, they contacted Ohio Basement Authority.

One of our certified inspectors visited the home and explained all of the waterproofing products we offer and how they would work together to create a dry living space.

The homeowners decided to go with CleanSpace Liner, SaniDry, TripleSafe, IceGuard, and WaterGuard.

The installation crew first installed CleanSpace Liner on the stone foundation walls which were causing a damper, cooler basement. This is a thick plastic liner which separates the basement from the moisture, mold, and microbes of the outside world.

Next, they installed the SaniDry XP Basement Air System. This is a dehumidifier unlike any other which filters and dries the air to create a drier, cleaner air flow.

Then, they installed the TripleSafe sump pump. This includes two cast-iron pumps that can work one at a time or together if the occasion calls for it. It also includes an UltraSump battery backup to keep the pump going in the event of a power outage. They attached IceGuard to the end of the discharge line outside to allow water to escape even if the line becomes frozen or blocked with ice and snow.

Finally, they installed WaterGuard which is an interior drainage system that is specially designed to collect water from the ground and walls and carry it to the sump pump system without risk of clogging.

The homeowners can now safely use their basement for storage and no longer have to worry about puddles of water on their floors.

Fixing a Sinking Home in South Vienna, OH

A homeowner in South Vienna, OH, contacted us with urgent concerns that his house was sinking. He noted that the cement support block and jacks installed by a different company were sinking into softening clay from moisture exposure.

One of our inspectors came in and determined that our SmartJack system would be the best solution. This system would be installed by one of our production crews.

SmartJacks are steel supports used to stabilize and level the girders and floor joists in a crawl space. To address the soft soil issue, a cube of soil was excavated at each SmartJack location. The hole was filled with tightly-compacted crushed stone. A specially engineered footing was placed and leveled on top of the new, stable ground. The SmartJack was then put in place and tightened to immediately stabilize the sinking foundation.

The homeowner is happy knowing that his home is now stable and will not continue to sink into the soil.

Water Leaks Through a Fireplace in South Vienna, OH

A lady in South Vienna, OH called us about water leaking from underneath the fireplace hearth in the basement after rains. As there was a television in front of the fireplace, this was a concern for the homeowner. For health reasons, she was also worried about the mold the moisture was causing.

One of certified inspectors visited this home and laid out the best plan of action for the situation. He suggested using WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump to get rid of the leakage and excess water.

First, WaterGuard was installed by our production crew. WaterGuard is an interior piping system which collects water from the ground and wall and carries it to a sump pump system. Unlike traditional pipe and gravel drainage systems, WaterGuard is resistant to clogs.

Next, the TripleSafe sump pump was installed. TripleSafe is a state-of-the-art sump pump system which includes two cast-iron pumps (one to backup the first) and a battery backup which keeps the system running in the event of a power outage. It also includes an airtight lid to keep dirt and debris out of the system, and a WaterWatch Alarm as an extra precaution to alert the homeowners if the pump stops working for any reason.

With these reliable repairs, the homeowner no longer has to worry about mold from water leakage, or water touching the wires of her television.

Our basement has access through a cellar door set up from the outside. When the seller concrete basin fills with water it seeps under the door ultimately filling our basement full of water. Would be interested in hearing about solutions to stop water seepage into the basin and/or diverting the water once it's entered. Any information that you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.

I am going to build a 14'x32' deck and will need 6 piers. I would like to find out if helical piers would be a cost effective solution.
Vicinity of Old Columbus Rd. in South Vienna
We are currently in the inspection phase of possibly our future home. During the home inspection yesterday, we went into the crawl space and found a large amount of water. We noticed the sump pump was not working and may be the root cause of the issue, but would like a professional opinion before moving forward. We will request the issue to be fixed by the seller prior to moving in and will refer them to who we would like it to be fixed by. Please contact me ASAP.
