everyone did a great job at what they were assigned to do. The information sent prior to the visit by the sales rep. was worth the read. I learned much from that book and did have a much better feeling of security and understanding after reading the book. A must for all, prior to appointment with sales rep. The assistance of the book helped me make better decisions, ask better questions at the time of the interview. Sales person was very knowledgable about your products, what would be best for my paticular situation. Had lots of experience, assured me all those working for quality first basement systems, must take the mandatory training. You do not hire subcontractors..wonderful to know. I am so tired of that. I was provided with cell numbers, email addresses and what to expect comments from all involved. The office staff knew just where to direct my calls and did so promptly. The installation crew were, professional, polite and patient with helping me to understand how and why all the products I purchased were suited to my needs. I liked the one on one service; however, I did and do not like being sent a questionaire asking me if I would like to speak to the contractor prior to the installation...I did not send this back, but did call. Of course I wanted to speak to the installer. I was investing in a system that was going to save me much security in knowing I would no longer have to be worried about my floors buckling, the sub pump not working, having to deal with a flooded yard, having the water that was discharged from the side of my house, and running right back into the crawl space, not to mention in the spring an fall how wet my floors became because of the moisture in my crawl space. I cannot wait for the next heavy rain to see how the system works and I just love that very quiet sub-pump, yeap, I think Q first and I will have a good relationship.

"During the annual maintenance, Vinny did a very thorough job of cleaning..."
During the annual maintenance, Vinny did a very thorough job of cleaning the sump pumps and was quick to identify issues & resolve them. I would highly recommend 1st quality basement systems for any sump pump related work.

"Never had a problem with any of the problems fixed"
Overall I am very happy with the decision to buy the Triplesafe system. The price still kind of bothers me, but after getting water in the basement 3 times this year after lengthy power failures (and never for 15 years before that), I wanted what appeared (and still appears) to be a professional, reliable sump solution. Thanks.

"Was delighted with Quality 1st from initial service call to installation..."
I live above an aquifer, and before I found Quality 1st Basement Systems, I would find water in my basement every time it rained. Water would bubble up through minute cracks in the floor and walls, and after my husband died I grew afraid that I'd slip down there and be stuck. My sump pump would eventually take care of things, but it seemed like it would have to run forever.
My father-in-law recommended Quality 1st. When I got in touch, they sent out a sales rep who was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was able to give me options, and walk me through exactly what the job would entail. The work took three days to complete, and the difference has been amazing.
Since Quality 1st finished up, the basement has been dry as a bone. I've seen no flooding whatsoever, on either the walls or the tile floor. They even installed a battery backup on the sump pump, in case I ever lost power in a storm. From start to finish, my experience with Quality first was absolutely amazing. For the result I received, I think they are an excellent value.
The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
The ⅓ hp primary pump can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head, while the ½ hp secondary pump can discharge as much as 3,900 additional gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head. In the case of a tripped circuit, power outage, or sump failure, your TripleSafe™'s UltraSump® Battery Backup System will kick in. A second battery can be hooked up to a single system for an even longer running time. All told, this system provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.
For an effective and more economical solution, consider our SuperSump® Premier Pump System. It is engineered to help keep the basement dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement. The SuperSump® can also be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
If you have had occasional water issues but not a severe flood, the SuperSump® may be the ideal option for your home. This complete system provides total protection, and like all of our sump pump systems, works perfectly with our drainage systems.
If you're looking for a crawl space sump pump solution, the SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System is the ideal option. The SmartSump™ is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. The SmartSump™ comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump. This sump pump is designed to fit with the CleanSpace® liner and has a sump alarm to ensure you are always aware of any water in your crawl space.
The SmartSump™ system comes with a reliable Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower sump pump capable of pumping 2,500 gallons per hour at a 5-foot head. This system is designed to fit with our crawl space encapsulation system, ensuring that you have a completely dry, clean crawl space.
Of course, in many cases water issues in the basement are caused by severe weather that can knock out power. With that in mind, we created the UltraSump® Battery Backup System to ensure continued protection no matter what happens. In the event of loss of power the battery backup will automatically kick in and begin removing water from your basement, preventing a flood. The UltraSump® system can pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery, which is enough water to fill a small swimming pool!
The battery backup also comes with an alarm to alert you in case of power failure, sounding when the backup pump is running and silencing when power is restored. This alarm also protects you in case the main system is accidently unplugged, which could otherwise leave your basement unprotected. The UltraSump® can outlast generic backup pumps many times over, and an additional battery can be attached for further protection.
Before and After
The owner of this basement in Maple Shade, NJ needed a new sump pump. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The three pumps and battery back up will keep this basement dry.
Homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after realizing the sump pump system had stopped working causing the basement to fill with almost 4 inches of water. Project Manager, Jesus Alvarez- Sanchez and his crew removed the old sump pump system and installed the TripleSafe Sump Pump that not only has three built in pumps in one but also a back up battery that automatically turns on and continues to pump out water during a power outage.
Every time there was heavy rain, the cinder blocks in this Ewing Township basement would get wet and water would appear along the floor against the wall. Over time, moisture and water marks appeared and the homeowner began to worry and called Quality 1st Basement Systems.
Quality 1st installed WaterGuard and a SuperSump pump system in the laundry room area to collect and direct the water out of the basement. A Vapor Barrier known as CleanSpace was then applied to the walls to protect against water vapor and moisture. The CleanSpace is tucked into the WaterGuard to catch any water leaks and guide it to the water to the drain.
The homeowner was happy at how professional Project Manager, Melvin and his crew were and how well they cleaned up afterwards as if they were never there at all.
The owner of this West Creek, NJ basement needed a more powerful sump pump to keep the area dry. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a SuperSump sump pump, which is reliable and has an airtight seal!

Quality 1st Basement Systems replaced this outdated sump pump with a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump is reilable and has a battery back-up pump in case of emergencies. Now this Hightstown, NJ basement has a powerful sump pump to keep it dry.
This homeowner was experiencing water every time it would rain. The rain water typically entered the basement through the basement floors and flooded the basement. Quality 1st Basement Systems determined that the basement needed a sump pump since the pump placed in the basement by the original builders was insufficient. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed the SuperSump sump pump to pump water up and out of the basement, keeping this basement dry during any future rain storms!
Hillsborough basement became flooded after rain storm. Homeowner noticed that the sump pump was overflowing during the most recent storm. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a TripleSafe sump pump which will effectively pump all of the water out of this basement all of the time.

This Millstone homeowner was having issues with water coming up through the basement floor. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump to correct the issue. Homeowner is no longer experiencing water seepage.
An open sump pump system will allow for moisture and water vapor to rise back into the basement.An opening in the lid or having no lid at all, is dangerous to small children and pets. Quality 1st Basement Systems replaced this existing sump pump with a TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The TripleSafe Sump Pump has an airtight lid that not only prevents water vapor and moisture from rising back up into the basement, but is also safe to have around children and pets.
These key additional features will provide you with total peace of mind

Our sump pump systems include the following features:
WaterWatch® Alarm: Sounds off to let you know if water has risen past the point where the pumps should have turned on.
SuperLiner Sump Liner: Large enough to keep your sump pump working properly without turning on and off repeatedly, but not so large that your liner goes too deep, making your sump pump wear out prematurely as it pumps out unnecessary water.
Airtight Sump Lid: An airtight lid keeps odors and humidity out, while protecting your sump from debris from the basement floor. Rubber grommets around all pipes and wires help maintain the airtight lid and also help to keep all PVC pipes steady and quiet.
CleanPump Stands: These sump pump stands are installed to raise the pumps off of the bottom of the liner. Any silt or sediment that settles on the bottom of your sump pit will be kept away from your pump. These stands also allow for height adjustment of the pump if necessary.
IceGuard® Discharge Line Protection: Many sump pump discharge lines are susceptible to freezing during the cold winter months. Our IceGuard® discharge line protector is the solution to this problem! This specifically designed grated adapter is located outside where the discharge line exits the house. If the pipe underground freezes in the winter, water can still be pumped out without the worry of backups into your basement! *Note: The IceGuard® does not come standard with our sump pump systems.
Sump pumps should always be installed with a perimeter drain system to ensure that all water is drained to the sump pit and removed from the basement.
