This homeowner never had serious issues with water, but with the recent heavy rains, their basement had been consistently flooding. The sump pump that they had was no longer keeping the basement dry, and the homeowner knew it was time for an upgrade. They did not have a drainage system of any sort- which is why the water was not making it to their pump.
System Design Specialist, Mike F. explained that in order for the water to get to the pump, they would need a full perimeter WaterGuard System installed as well. WaterGuard collects any water seeping in through the basement walls or floor and directs it towards the sump pump. Mike also suggested the homeowner have the TripleSafe Sump Pump installed.
The TripleSafe Sump Pump offers three times the protection to ensure that the homeowner will never have to worry about water in their basement again. It is equipped with 3 pumps and a backup battery that will keep it running even if the power goes out.

If there is an obstacle that cannot be removed, Quality 1st Basements System's installation team can install the WaterGuard channel around the obstacle (like the radiator in this home in Clifton, NJ) to provide a continuous path for water to channel toward the sump pump.
If the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system is designed to be installed along basement walls, what happens when you get to an opening, like an exterior basement door entrance? As shown here, installed by foreman Juan Garcia and his crew for this customer in Clifton, NJ, a TrenchLock TrenchDrain is connected to the WaterGuard on both sides of the doorway (beneath the floor). Designed with a grated opening and a removable lid to clear debris, it provides a continuous pathway for the water to move to the sump pump.
