Water in your basement causes damage, ruins treasured items, and can lead to expensive repairs and diminished home value.

Our team has been waterproofing basements throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky for 15 years. Homeowners know they can trust our unparalleled customer care and quality basement waterproofing solutions. 

This page will educate you on the importance of investing in a reliable sump pump system and how our pumps can solve your wet basement problem for good. 

What is an AquaStop™ Sump Pump System? 

The AquaStop™ Basement Sump Pump System is a specialized device placed at the lowest point in your basement. It’s designed to collect water from the interior perimeter drainage system and pump it away from your home’s foundation. 

This system is integral to basement waterproofing, safeguarding against basement flooding and structural damage. However, it encompasses more than that; it’s part of a larger whole-home solution designed to foster a safer and healthier living space for you and your family. 

AquaStop™ Sump Pumps are equipped with features like a water alarm, sump liner, airtight sump lid, and high-quality cast iron pumps to ensure the utmost reliability and effectiveness. With routine maintenance, an AquaStop™ sump pump will keep your basement dry for years to come. 

Signs You Need a Basement Sump Pump 

It’s crucial to recognize the indicators that suggest the need for a sump pump in your basement: 

These signs are a call to action to protect your home from water damage and related issues. It’s crucial to contact a basement waterproofing professional like Ohio Basement Authority when you notice something is wrong. Otherwise, damage escalates, your family’s safety is at risk, and repair costs rise. 

Is a Sump Pump Necessary? 

Yes, a sump pump is essential; it is the heart of your basement waterproofing system. 

Without a sump pump to remove water collected by the drainage system, moisture will accumulate. This trapped moisture causes mold, mildew, and structural damage. 

Acting early can save you from the headache of tackling more significant problems in the future. Additionally, AquaStop™ Sump Pumps can be integrated seamlessly into a comprehensive home solution, emphasizing the health and safety of your living space. 

What Are the Different Kinds of AquaStop™ Sump Pumps? 

We understand every home is different and has specific needs. We proudly offer a variety of sump pump systems tailored to your unique basement. 

AquaStop™ Basement Single 

The single pump system uses a powerful SafeDri™ cast iron pump for standard water removal. It can be installed with either a SafeDri™ ⅓ hp or ½ hp pump. The ½ hp pump discharges more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour, and the ½ hp pump discharges more than 3,000 gallons per hour. 

AquaStop™ Basement Single with Battery Backup 

This system adds a battery backup to protect against power outages. It can discharge more than 11,500 gallons per hour on battery power. 

AquaStop™ Basement Triple 

Our most reliable system has three pumps for complete protection. The main SafeDri™ 1/3 hp pump handles everyday water removal. A secondary SafeDri™ 1/2 hp pump adds capacity for large volumes, and a third pump—the battery backup pump—protects during outages. 

Each sump pump type is designed to meet specific needs. Our qualified technicians will assess your wet basement issues and recommend the right AquaStop™ system for your home. 

What Are the Benefits of the AquaStop™ Sump Pump System? 

With a reliable sump pump system on your side, you’ll experience several benefits, including: 

  • Ensured Basement Dryness: AquaStop™ systems quickly remove water from your basement, preventing flooding and moisture damage.

How AquaStop™ Sump Pumps Work 

After an Ohio Basement Authority expert assesses your basement and determines that an AquaStop™ sump pump system is the best solution for you, our installation process is as follows: 

  • Determine the lowest point of the basement 
  • Excavate the floor to accommodate the sump liner 
  • Excavate the perimeter for the interior drainage system 
  • Place interior drains in the trench 
  • Connect drains to the sump basin 
  • Place pumps and components in the sump liner 
  • Add interior sump pump discharge pipes 
  • Direct discharge pipes through the basement wall 
  • Install exterior discharge pipes, extensions, and anti-freeze discharge line attachment 
  • Run electrical hookup to control panel 
  • Attach battery backup if deemed necessary 
  • Test the pumping system 
  • Attach an airtight lid to the sump basin 
  • Pour cement to restore the concrete floor 

 Here’s how this system works to keep your basement safe and dry: 

  • The interior drainage system collects leaking water. 
  • Water is directed to the sump pump system. 
  • Once water reaches a certain level in the basin, it activates the pumping system. 
  • Water is pumped out of the basement and away from your home. 

Ohio Basement Authority provides the most reliable installation services to guarantee the effectiveness of your sump pump and comprehensive basement waterproofing system.
