Discharge Line Freeze Protection
When you have a sump pump, it likely discharges outside the house and you need sump discharge line freeze protection. Snow and ice may obstruct the opening and make it freeze.
When this occurs your pump will be working and the water won't be able to get out, triggering your basement to flood. The Basement Doctor's IceGuard®, which is common on most systems, will prevent this issue automatically so you won't ever need to worry about your basement flooding unexpectedly.
Our sump pumps are highly-effective at getting rid of abundant amounts of water in the lowest level of your home. However, we believe it's a good idea to have discharge line protection on your sump in case winter weather strikes hard.
Generally speaking, your lines will extend out to the street in front of your home. If the ends of these pipes get frozen, it spells disaster for you and your basement. Water won't be able to be directed out and away via these lines. If the lines become frozen and buried under heavy snow, the water will be sent out through the discharge freeze line. This all happens automatically, so you don't need to worry about switching sumps on or off.
If your home is suffering with a wet basement, get it taken care of with a sump pump system from The Basement Doctor. We offer a variety of sumps, and even provide battery back up sump pumps for additional protection. Take care of your biggest investment now!
