Our client had recurring water problems cause of the inadequate sump pump system that was installed when he bought the house. We installed the SuperSump, along with an UltraSump battery backup sump pump which alone can pump out 12,000 gallons of water on full charge. This system provided the owner with a long-lasting protection from power outages, sump pump failures, blown fuses, and similar issues.
When we first met these clients, they had a very high level of humidity in their basement, mainly due to an open sump pump pit. An open pit with constantly running water is like a humidifier in your house!
The homeowners would never know if and when their pump stopped working, so we installed our SuperSump system that comes with a WaterWatch Alarm. to let them know if their pump stopped working. In addition, the completely sealed system helped a lot in keeping the humidity levels lower in their basement.
Our clients in Beaconsfield had a water infiltration problem due the sump pump overflowing during a big rain. They thought this could happen again, as they only had one pump in the pit and there was no battery backup system. They only knew about there issue when it was too late and the water was already on their basement floor. Also their sump pit was open, causing a lot of humidity in the basement.
As they thought this could definitely happen again, they called us to install a sump pit with the intention of finishing their basement. They needed a system that would give them the peace of mind, once and for all. As such, our specialist recommended the TripleSafe sump pump system, as this met the clients' needs with features such as 2 main pumps, one battery-operated backup pump, an alarm system and an airtight sump lid to help lower the humidity level in the basement.
Here is one of our jobs in Dorval, where we have changed the open and poorly installed sump with our SuperSump, a closed sump with a cast iron pump.
Pumps on pedestals overheat and usually make more noise since they are installed outside the sump!
Mr. Marc needed to replace his sump pump, which was no longer functional, causing water to accumulate at the bottom of the sump in the basement and decided to contact our company for a free inspection.
Following his call, our crew quickly took action and waterproofed the space and installed a new sump pump system called SuperSump pump. This high-end system includes a powerful Zoeller ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement.
Our SuperSump not only helps discharge the internal drain, but also helps in lowering the water level in the soil under the slab.
Mr. Marc is now very satisfied with the installation and the customer service of Basement Systems Québec.
