Old Sump Pump
This homeowner's old and unsightly sump pump needed to be replaced. It was just a pit without a cover on it which makes it very dangerous as their have been nightmare stories of accidents including children. This sump pump system also does not have a back-up in case the power goes out and at that point it would be as if there was no sump pump in the basement at all.
New Sump Pump
Here is the new sump pump system installed. This TripleSafe Sump Pump has 2 powerful sump pumps that will keep this basement dry all the time and it also includes a back-up sump pump with a battery back-up that will kick in if the power goes out. The dual-lid cover is also a great improvement over the open sump pit and it is much safer. Notice the red and yellow device on top of the lid cover. That is an alarm that will inform the homeowner of any other leaks that could cause a basement blood such as a pipe burst.
