SUMP PUMPS & BATTERY BACKUP SYSTEMS

STRONGER PUMPS REMOVE WATER FASTER

A sump pump is the heart of your water management system. If the heart fails, everything fails. At Basement Panther Waterproofing, we only utilize the best pumps on the market, for maximum longevity and superior performance.

Our ½ Horse Power pumps can handle even the most demanding water problems. A stronger pump means more gallons per hour being removed from your home, so even the strongest downpours can be handled easily.

A stronger pump also translates to much more flexibility in pump placement and discharge location. Discharge lines often need to run up and across a basement to avoid discharging the wastewater onto a drive way or being unsightly in the front of a home. These long runs put more pressure on the pump and can lead to premature failure..

HIDDEN UNDERGROUND DISCHARGE

While most companies will simply discharge the excess water out through the side of your home onto a splash block, which is very unsightly. At Basement Panther Waterproofing, we will always (where possible) provide you with a hidden underground discharge. The water will be directed into a 4’ solid PVC pipe buried underground, which will in turn carry the water 10’ away from your home and into an underground “drywell”. Ask your in-home inspector for more information on hidden discharges.

BATTERY BACKUP SYSTEMS

If you live in a area prone to power outages, you should consider a battery backup system. Sump pumps require electricity to work, so no matter how strong your pump is, it is useless in a power outage situation.

Battery backups come in the form of a second battery powered pump installed in the same well as your main pump. The backup pumps are located higher than the main pump so they will only activate in the event of a main pump failure.

We also offer Hydro Backup pumps. These pumps utilize the water pressure from your city water supply to power the pump, so no matter how long the power is out for, your sump pump will continue to keep your home dry.

WHY WATERPROOF YOUR BASEMENT?

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT

Water intrusion is not only inconvenient, it is erosive. Water penetrating your foundation is creating more damage each time it occurs, and will eventually lead to the failure of your home’s foundation. A subfloor pressure relief system will manage the ground water, and remove it from your home’s foundation before it can cause any further damage, protecting your investment for many years to come.

REMOVE UNHEALTHY CONDITIONS

Wet or damp conditions in your home’s basement or crawlspace leads to a whole host of potential health issues. From infestations of bugs and small animals or snakes, to even more harmful mold colonization. A damp or musty smell in a basement or crawlspace is evidence of mold growth.

INCREASE HOME VALUE

Nobody wants to buy a home with a water problem. A damp musty smell is red flag for potential purchasers. Removing this issue will increase interest in your home, when you add in the transferable warranty that we offer, this will increase the re-sale value of your home up to 25%. A comfortable and inviting finished basement will increase the value even more.
