At the heart of any Type C waterproofing system is the sump pump unit – the sump pump unit is responsible for the safe removal of water from the basement.
What is a Sump Pump?
Its main job is to keep the area under the building dry and to prevent it from flooding. Water flows by natural water migration through the soil or by the sump pit flowing through drains. The sump pump’s job is to pump the water out of the pit and away from the building so the basement stays dry.
Providing one of the most extensive “Clean & Check” services, The Basement Sump & Pump Co are qualified on many various types of sump pump units that are currently available, and can help to ensure that your waterproofing system is running maximum efficiency.
As a condition of our long-term waterproofing guarantee, an annual ‘Clean & Check’ service makes for a trouble-free basement and this can really benefit your property. Any kind of Type C Waterproofing installation is serviced annually. The Basement Sump & Pump Co are the go-to specialists that we recommend here at Timberwise, as they have extensive experience maintaining basement sump and pump systems across the UK.
How do Sump Pumps work?
The sump pump usually stands in a hole which is dug in the lowest part of your basement or crawlspace. As the pit fills with water, the pump kicks in. The sump pump drives the water out of the pit through the pipes which will run away from your home to a spot where the water can drain away from your foundation.
The unique “figure eight” design of the TripleSafe™ allows three sump pumps, two AC and one DC to fit perfectly in the TripleSafe™ liner. The innovative sump liner and lid can accommodate two separate discharge lines, allowing twice the volume of water to be removed from the basement. This configuration of pumps complies with BS*102 as well as NHBC and LABC guidelines.
For customers who want uncompromised protection, the TripleSafe™ System is the most reliable basement sump system on the market! TripleSafe™ includes a Waterwatch™ Alarm, patented liner, 2-piece airtight lid, CleanPump stands, and floor drain. Often referred to as the world’s ultimate sump pump.
