After living in his house for two years, a homeowner in Proctorville, OH, was becoming concerned with the condition of the existing sump pump system.
The system is approximately 10 years old. While nothing major was wrong with it, the homeowner noticed the metal sump pit starting to deteriorate and sediment was accumulating. The system also lacked a lid, which can allow water in the pit to evaporate back into the basement. Debris and other objects also could fall in and damage or clog the system.
The homeowner wanted to make sure he would have a reliable system to always keep the basement dry, so he contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us online. We upgraded the older metal system to a newer plastic-based system that will not rust or corrode. The reliable SafeDri Battery Back-up system will always work to keep the basement dry.
Additional waterproofing solutions that were installed included an FreezeGuard attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, new downspout conductor lines, and YardWell outlets to camouflage the ends of these lines. The open crawl space vents also were sealed with exterior vent covers.
The owner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable installations have helped him create a safer and healthier home that he will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.
