After experiencing previous flooding incidents, homeowners in Grove City, OH, wanted to know what steps they could take to reduce the risk of future basement flooding. They had two sump pumps in their basement that were always running. One previously burned out, and there was as much as two inches of water in their basement.
They have lived in the 20-year old house for 13 years. They are considering selling the home, and they want to make sure it will be safe and dry for future owners.
The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our inspectors suggested various basement waterproofing methods.
Per our inspector's recommendations, one of our expert crews installed the sub-floor BasementGutter drainage system along the west foundation wall. This was the area they were most concerned with regarding flooding. The BasementGutter intercepts any seeping water and drains it to the SafeDri Triple sump pump that was installed in the northwest corner. Featuring three pumps, including a battery back-up, the SafeDri Triple pumps any water out of and away from the home.
New discharge lines were installed by burying them underground, and running them out to the street. FreezeGuards were also attached to exterior sump pump drainage pipes to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked pipes.
The homeowners are pleased the home will by a healthy and dry living environment for years to come.
