Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: TripleSafe sump pump fixes wet basement in Nutley

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 by Cassandra Santiago

Challenge

A Nutley homeowner was suffering with a wet basement for almost 50 years! She had tried to rectify the issue multiple times with generic sump pumps, but ultimately these failed and the basement would flood again. It was impossible to make use of the space when she feared her belongings would be damaged by the water in her basement. She wanted the problem fixed once and for all.

Solution

A Quality 1st Basement Systems inspector had the right basement waterproofing solutions for her! The Quality 1st Basement Systems crew removed her old malfunctioning sump pump and installed a TripleSafe sump pump to drain the basement of water, along with a back-up battery to ensure the system would never fail despite power outages or other electrical problems.

The Quality 1st Basement Systems team also installed a WaterGuard to keep water away from the home’s foundation, thus preventing leaks into the basement. This system will never clog from debris, so the water will always flow smoothly out and away. They installed an IceGuard along with it to protect the pipes from freezing during cold winter months. The homeowner was thrilled with the solutions provided. After decades of dealing with a wet basement, she can now enjoy the extra dry space in her home!
