Not long after moving into their house, homeowners in Gahanna, OH, discovered a problem in their basement. They pulled the carpet up from the floor and found water had leaked inside. They also questioned the operation of the existing sump pump system.
After learning about Ohio Basement Authority from their realtor, the owners were eager to contact us to see exactly how we could help them create a dry home. After meeting with one of our experienced inspectors, the homeowners were equally excited for one of our crews to upgrade their basement waterproofing system.
We installed the BasementGutter interior drainage system in the sub-floor to intercept any seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to a newer, more reliable sump pump system. We replaced the older, failing system with 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 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.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing their home is protected by an updated, efficient basement waterproofing system.
