Sump pumps are used to send water out and away from a home. They are built in a pit or basin in the basement floor. Water drains into the pit, and once it reaches a certain level, it will be pumped out and away from the home to a safe distance — where it won’t be able to seep back into the soil and into the home again.
BDB Waterproofing offers sump pump installation in the Omaha area. We install Pro Series sump pumps that are designed with the basement environment in mind. These durable sump pumps will be able to handle moisture that collects below your home. A clear lid is installed over the pit for easy inspection or maintenance and keeps things from falling into the pit.
You may also consider adding a sump pump battery backup for additional protection against moisture damage. If the sump pump malfunctions or the power goes out, the backup will automatically activate and operate for several hours. This protects you from getting water in your basement at all times.
When BDB Waterproofing installs a sump pump system, we include a high-water sump pump alarm that will notify you if the pump stops working. We also add a check valve, which prevents water from the sump line from draining back into the sump basin after the water has already been discharged from the home.
Using Pro Series Sump Pumps can have benefits for you. Some of the benefits that come with installing a Pro Series sump pump in your home include:
