Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Basement Dry in Pickerington, OH

After recently purchasing her house, a homeowner in Pickerington, OH, took the advice of a home inspector in addressing potential drainage issues. She began to research companies that could address this, as well as the existing sump pump system. The sump pump only had a partial lid covering the pump and pit. This is dangerous for several reasons. Objects could fall into the open area of the pit and damage the equipment, water in the pit can evaporate back into the basement and cause moisture and mold issues, and the basement could flood if the pump fails to keep up with water it takes in. The homeowner was eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and she met with one of our experienced inspectors. He completed a thorough evaluation of the home’s waterproofing system, and he presented the homeowner with several of our permanent waterproofing solutions. Along with installing the BasementGutter interior drainage system to catch any seeping water, we replaced the older sump pump with a more reliable system – the SafeDri Battery Backup System. The SafeDri features a powerful 1/3 hp cast iron pump with a metal float switch inside the heavy-duty polyethylene liner. It also is equipped with a DC pump, charging system and battery, and will automatically turn on if the primary pump fails to operate. The SafeDri can pump out 11,500 gallons of water on a new, fully-charged battery. The back-up battery also enables the system to continue to operate even in the event of a power outage. We also attached an FreezeGuard to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this line was tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property. The homeowner can now rest easier knowing this reliable system will keep her home safe and dry for many years to come.
