Our sump pumps are special waterproofing drains that are designed to mitigate and pump excess water within basements and crawl spaces. Once the water level inside of the sump basin or "pit" reaches a certain level, the water pumped and drained away from the home to a safe distance.
There are several different types available with different sizes and water pumping efficiency. The capacity you need will depend on the size of your home, as well as the dimensions of the space that the sump will need to protect. Ideally a larger sump will be needed in a larger home, and a more compact pump will work for projects in a smaller area such as crawl space repair.
Battery Backup Systems
In addition to the primary pumps that we install, Basement Problems can also provide you with a battery backup unit. This system will be activated in case the primary pump fails or experiences some type of malfunction, or if the home happens to lose electricity. When does a home usually lose power in Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina? During a storm. This is when your basement or crawl space is going to need protection the most against unwanted moisture intrusion.
