Sump Pump System
The Basement Doctor™ offers patented sump pump systems installed by certified waterproofing contractors.
When you have a perimeter drainage system installed in your home, your sump pump is your main line of defense against a basement flood. If you can't count on your sump system to be powerful or reliable enough, then you can't count on a dry basement, and what good is the space if it gets wet?
At The Basement Doctor, we install only the best sump pump systems available anywhere in the area. We have an answer to clogging sump pumps, power failures, torrential rainfall, and much more!
Each of our sump pumps includes the following features:
- Alarm: Sounds off to let you know if water has risen past the point where the pumps should have turned on.
- Sump Liner: Large enough to keep your sump pump working properly, without turning on and off repeatedly. Not so large that your liner goes too deep, making your sump pump wear out prematurely as it pumps out unnecessary water.
- Sump Lid: An airtight lid keeps odors and humidity out, while protecting your sump from debris from the basement floor. Rubber grommets around all pipes and wires help maintain the airtight lid and also help to keep all PVC pipes steady and quiet.
- Pump Stands: These sump pump stands are installed to raise the pumps off of the bottom of the liner. Any silt or sediment that settles on the bottom of your sump pit will be kept away from your pump. These stands also allow for height adjustment of the pump if necessary.
- No Ice Blockage® Discharge Line Protection: Many sump pump discharge lines are susceptible to freezing during the cold winter months. Our No Ice Blockage® discharge line protection prevents this from happening, with no need for the homeowner to do anything! This specifically designed grated adapter is located outside where the discharge line exits the house. If the pipe underground freezes in the winter, water can still be pumped out without the worry of backups into your basement!
