Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Replacement Sump Pump, Discharge Line Helps Waterproof Ovid, MI Basement

Album Description

Marjorie and George contacted us when they had water enter their basement through a discharge line exit point. This is the same discharge line meant to transport water away from their home. 

Upon further inspection, their discharge line was completely clogged with mud, a common problem when laid on top of your outside soil. Our team buries discharge lines so they are out of sight, are not a trip hazard, and will not get clogged.

Before we could replace their discharge line, the family opted to also replace their aging and ineffectual sump pump with one of our best pumps--the TripleSafe sump pump. This sump pump system contains three pumps in one liner. The idea is that when the first pump gets overwhelmed by the amount of water entering the basement, the second pump kicks in. The third pump will activate in the case of a power outage. 

The family also opted to install IceGuard. Frozen discharge lines are common during our Michigan winters. In this case, the grates on the IceGuard system will give the water a secondary escape route. Instead of backing up into the house, water flows out through the grates and onto the ground.
