Sump Pump Installation Services

If the basement in your home is especially susceptible to collecting water due to rain or groundwater, the installation of a sump pump is practically a must.

We are your Trusted Sump Pump Contractor

In simplest terms, the sump pump is the heart of any waterproofing system. It is located in a sump liner which is installed in a hole dug in the basement floor. The liner creates a low point for the attached french drain system to drain into. The sump pump removes the collected water from the sump liner after enough water has been collected.

Sump Pump Systems

There are generally 2 types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible. Pedestal types are a bit noisy and prone to failure. We at Basement Lifeguard install only submersible cast iron sump pumps. They are quieter, stronger and much more durable. Our sump pumps have a range in capacity from 35 to 80 gallons per minute with 10 feet of vertical discharge pipe.

Sump Pump with BackupBattery Backup Sump Pump

We also offer battery backup sump pumps that tie right into the main pump’s discharge pipe. They are very helpful in eliminating water from the system during a power outage (when it is generally raining). These days, we’re all more concerned with an aging electrical grid. How dependable will the power to your home be when you need it most? Battery backup sump pumps are a pretty affordable way to ensure that your basement will stay dry in the face of the upcoming storm. More protection for your basement to help you sleep better at night with all that rain coming down.

Water-Powered Backup Sump Pump

If you have municipal water to your house, you may be able to have a backup pump installed that runs off your home’s water pressure. This is beneficial because batteries will run out of power after 6 to 8 hours of operation, where as the water pressure in your home is likely to be available much longer.

Our team of industry professionals will help you choose the right sump pump system suited for your home’s specific needs.

XL Sump Pit

The XL sump pit has a wider base than the standard sump pit. This allows the pump to remove the same amount of water as if it were in a standard sump pit but only have to run 1/3 as often making it significantly more efficient. The larger area in the XL makes more room to accommodate a second pump without a significant loss of efficiency to the primary. The XL pit also has a clear lid for inspection.
