SafeDri Sump Pump Replacement will Keep a Home Dry in Powell, OH

A homeowner in Powell, OH, has lived in his house for 11 years, but it wasn’t until recently that he began seriously thinking about his home’s interior waterproofing system. He was particularly concerned with the condition and efficiency of his pedestal sump pump. He wanted to have it replaced or perhaps upgraded to a more trustworthy system. The homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company and our sump pump services online. After meeting with one of our inspectors, the owner was eager for us to replace the open sump pump system with the reliable SafeDri. 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 more than 11,000 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.

FreezeGuards and Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Basement Dry in Dublin, OH

After recently moving into their house, homeowners in Dublin, OH, noticed their sump pump was running quite often. They were worried the existing system would not be able to keep up if there was a problem with water in the vast basement. The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Angie’s List. We replaced the existing sump pump with the reliable SafeDri Battery Back-Up System to give them peace of mind. When one of our inspectors first visited the homeowners to complete a thorough evaluation of the home and its waterproofing system, he noticed an issue outside. Water had frozen on the outside of the sump pump discharge lines. This can cause major problems inside the home including water seepage and flooding. To address this problem, we attached FreezeGuards to the sump pump discharge lines. These attachments will allow water to escape should the discharge lines freeze or become blocked. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these basement waterproofing solutions will keep their home dry for many more years to come.

Permanently Waterproofing a Leaking Basement and Improving its Appearance in London, OH

While they have lived in their house for more than 20 years, it wasn’t until recently that these homeowners in London, OH, began to notice glaring problems in their basement. During constant heavy summertime storms, water leaked into the basement and ended up flooding the home with a few feet of water. That is a significant amount of water anyway, but it also was obvious that the existing sump pump system was failing and could not keep up with the seeping water. The owners wanted to address these issues right away so they wouldn’t have to worry about cleaning up from another flood. As they researched potential repairs and companies to complete the work, the owners found information about Ohio Basement Authority on Home Advisor. They were eager to contact us to meet with one of our inspectors and learn more about how we could help them. Inspector Jeff Floit completed a thorough evaluation of the basement, and then he recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions that would give them peace of mind and a dry basement. Foreman Jose de Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then waterproofed the basement with products including the BasementGutter drainage system, SafeDri Triple sump pump, CrawlSeal Wall System, and exterior FreezeGuard attachment. BasementGutter is designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. Additionally, a section of drainage was placed in the floor in front of the basement’s walk-out access. Any water intercepted by the BasementGutter is then directed to the SafeDri Triple sump pump. Equipped with three powerful pumps inside a large liner, the SafeDri Triple also has an external backup battery. All of these features ensure the SafeDri will always operate to pump water out of the basement. FreezeGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding. The stone walls in the basement also were covered with CrawlSeal. This liner is typically used to encapsulate crawl spaces, but it has other practical uses as well. Along with concealing the stone walls, the water-resistant CrawlSeal liner also helps direct any seeping water from the walls down to the BasementGutter system. The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer living environment.

When they moved into their house several years ago, homeowners in New Carlislie, OH, planned to live there for many years. That is why maintaining a safe and healthy living environment is important to the homeowners. They recently began to notice water seeping inside one particular corner of the basement every time it rained. This resulted in puddles on the floor and visible damage to the walls and floor in that corner. It also was obvious the existing sump pump system was failing to keep up with this seeping water. The homeowners would like to eventually finish the entire basement, so they wanted to have these problems fixed before any damage occurred.
