SafeDri Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Basement Dry in New Albany, OH

She has lived in her house for a little more than one year, but a homeowner in New Albany, OH, recently started to become concerned with her interior waterproofing system. She wondered if the sump pump was working correctly, as it was making a lot of noise. The sump pump system is located in a closet in the finished basement, so it’s easy to keep it out of sight and out of mind. But the homeowner wanted to make sure her finished basement would be protected from flooding or other issues. The owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads, and she met with Inspector Jeff Floit. Jeff assessed the condition of the sump pump, and he noticed it looked outdated and inefficient. A failing sump pump, even if it has a backup battery, can lead to the problems the homeowner wanted to avoid. Jeff suggested the homeowner upgrade her sump pump to one of our reliable systems. Foreman Milton Castro and his crew removed the older system and replaced it with the SafeDri Battery Backup System. The SafeDri features two powerful pumps inside the liner, as well as an external backup battery to ensure the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement. We installed the SafeDri inside the larger SafeDri liner to allow for easy future upgrades. The homeowner is pleased to have an updated sump pump system that will keep her home dry.

Sump Pump Upgrade and Other Installations Will Protect a Problematic Basement in Sunbury, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Sunbury, OH, were motivated to address continuous problems in their basement once and for all. Water leaked inside the basement every time it rained, and this leakage seemed to occur in a section that also had walls that were cracking and tilting inward. The owners plan to live in the house for many years, so having a safe, dry and healthy living environment is important to them. As they began to research how to address these issues, they came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they started browsing through our website as well. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. After they did so, they met with Inspector Zeke Fowler who completed a thorough evaluation of the basement. After discussing his findings with the owners, as well as their goals for repair, Zeke then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions. Foreman Ben O'Bryant and his crew waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter and French drainage system. These systems intercept seeping water and direct it to the SafeDri sump pump that was installed to replace the older, failing sump pump system. Equipped with two powerful pumps inside the liner, the sump also features an external backup battery. This battery ensures the system will always operate and work to pump water out of the basement even during power outages. Additionally, a FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. Several Wall Anchors also were installed on the adjacent cracking, tilting foundation wall. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors permanently stabilize the walls, prevent any further cracking or inward bowing, and offer the best opportunity to straighten the walls because of their unique design. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safe, stable and dry forever home.

Waterproofing Upgrades Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Canal Winchester, OH

After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, homeowners in Canal Winchester, OH, reached out to us because they were interested in improving their exterior drainage system. The owners met with one of our inspectors who recommended upgrading the system by having one of our crews remove the above-ground pipes and place them in the ground. While at the home, our inspector also looked at the basement because the owners were concerned with water seeping in corners where the exterior drain lines were placed. Along with visible water intrusion and damage, our inspector noticed there was an inefficient sump pump system that was failing to keep up with the seeping water. The inspector then presented the homeowners with some reliable basement waterproofing solutions. Nate Klingenberger and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Triple sump pump, as well as exterior FreezeGuard attachments and new drainage lines. BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to drain into the SafeDri Triple sump pump system. This system features three powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery. Additionally, FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding if the lines freeze or become blocked. Newer, thicker pipe was used for the exterior drainage lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain far enough away from the home’s foundation. The homeowners can rest easier knowing all of these trustworthy solutions will work together to keep their home safe and dry.

SafeDri Triple Replaces Older Sump Pump to Keep a Basement Dry in Galena, OH

Homeowners in Galena, OH, have lived in their house for many years. They never noticed any problems with water intrusion until a couple of years ago. Since then, streams of water could be seen along their basement floor during periods of heavy rain. Even though they had a sump pump, it was no longer working efficiently enough to keep water out of the basement. It was covered by a lid, but a small section of it was open. This allows any water inside the sump pit to evaporate back into the basement and create additional moisture issues. Foreign objects can also fall inside and affect the pumping system. Because they use the basement for livable space and storage, the owners wanted to make sure it would be free of water. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and we replaced the older sump pump with the reliable SafeDri Triple that will always work to pump water out of the basement and away from the foundation. Other waterproofing products were installed including the BasementGutter interior drainage system that will catch any seeping water and drain it to the SafeDri. New downspout conductor lines were also installed, and FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines. The owners were pleased these permanent solutions were installed so their home will be a safe and dry living environment for many more years to come.

Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Bucyrus, OH

While they have lived in their house for many years, longtime homeowners in Bucyrus, OH, wanted to be sure they had a trustworthy waterproofing system in their basement. They were concerned with moisture in the basement and the rest of the house, and they wondered how efficient the existing system really was.

After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners wanted to contact us for further guidance. They met with Inspector Brendan Kent who evaluated the condition of their home’s waterproofing system. He noted that the current sump pump system appeared to be outdated and was starting to show signs of failure. Before they had to deal with a flood situation, Brendan recommended upgrading their waterproofing system to more reliable products.

The homeowners agreed with Brendan’s assessment, and they were eager for Foreman Milton Castro and his crew to complete this project. We installed the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Pro X sump pump in the basement.

BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SafeDri Pro X to be pumped out of the basement and away from the home. The SafeDri Pro X features a powerful ½ hp pump that can pump more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The SafeDri Pro X is one of the many reliable sump pump systems we offer, and we installed this system in the homeowners’ basement in the larger sump liner used for the SafeDri Triple system to allow for easy future upgrades.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be protected by these trustworthy repairs.
