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.
Mt.Laurel, NJ homeowner was experiencing water in their unfinished basement. They had an existing sump pump system but was still experiencing water from time to time when it rained. Over the years the amount of water had increased from a small puddle to up to 2 inches of water. The water was now creating an uncomfortable, damp and smelly environment in the basement. The homeowner wanted a solution to the water concerns right away and so they contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems who was their local waterproofing experts.
Quality 1st sent System Design Specialist, Laszlo lenkey, out to inspect the area and design a solution that best fit this basement. Laszlo suggested replacing the sump pump system with a SuperSump Pump that will properly pump water out of the basement, keeping it dry and healthy. The SumpSump Pump is capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour out the basement.
The homeowner was relieved that they no longer had to water about water in their basement. Quality 1st Basement Systems helped another homeowner keep their basement dry and healthy.
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.
Having annual maintenance done on your sump pump system is very important. Without proper checks and cleanings, the pump will fail and your basement will flood. This is exactly what happened to a homeowner in Flemington, NJ. Quality 1st Basements replaced the failing, old sump pump with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Not only does our TripleSafe have an airtight lid to prevent water vapor from evaporating into the basement air but also has an alarm system to alert the homeowner if the pump fails. This lets the homeowner now right away that we need to be called.
System Design Specialist, Laura M. did a full inspection of this wet basement and designed a solution that best fit the water concerns. She suggested a full perimeter waterproofing system that consisted of our WaterGuard drainage system that collects water seepage from the walls and floors and directs it over to our SuperSump Plus sump pump system. Together, they keep the basement dry and deliver peace of mind tot he homeowner that water will no longer be a concern in this Flemington, NJ home.
Quality 1st Basement Systems waterproofed this Princeton, New Jersey basement with CleanSpace vapor barrier and a TripleSafe sump pump. The sump pump removes moisture from the basement, keeping it safe and dry. Now this basement is protected from flooding.
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!
Fixing the concrete walkway in Barnegat, NJ was fast and easy with PolyLevel. Quality 1st Basement Systems injected a polymer foam underneath the sinking slab. This lifted it back up into place, so it is no longer a trip hazard!

Quality 1st Basements replaced the old sump pump system with the SuperSump Pump System! Not only will this system keep the basement dry and healthy but has an airtight lid to keep water vapor trapped in the sump and not in the basement air.
A homeowner in East Windsor, NJ had an existing sump pump in their basement, but it was working poorly and there was often water in the well. To solve this problem, Quality 1st installed a new sump pump, TripleSafe. TripleSafe is a sump pump that provides three levels of protection for the basement. Meaning the TripleSafe has three pumps built in to provide full protection in case any of the pumps fail. Also, in case of a power outage the UltraSump battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery! With a new sump pump this basement will be free of water.

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 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.

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.
These key additional features will provide you with total peace of mind
Learn what makes our sump pumps the superior choice in this product comparison vidoe.
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.
