Your basement probably is where you store sports equipment, tools, unused furniture, and odds-and-ends. You may even have some cherished photos or mementos stored in cardboard boxes in your basement. So, what happens during an especially rainy season when your basement floods? All of those items become saturated with moisture and become a breeding ground for mold.
Moisture means mold, and mold means rotten wood, unpleasant odors, destroyed mementos, and big costs—if you don’t nip the problem in the bud as soon as possible.
When the team at Master Services comes out to assist you, we’ll perform a thorough inspection and discuss options for waterproofing your basement. You can trust our crew to provide professional advice based on years of training, education, and hands-on experience. Master Services will never steer you wrong when it comes to properly waterproofing your basement.
Depending on the size and location of the space, there are several sump pump options to consider.
TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System
Our most reliable system is the TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System. This system provides three levels of protection to safeguard your basement, even in the event of a power outage. For everyday functioning, the TripleSafe™ offers a robust Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump to operate at the lowest level. In the case of a primary pump failure, or heavier-than-normal water volume, a second Zoeller® ½ hp pump kicks in to provide extra protection.
If the power goes out, this system has your basement covered. Our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump kicks in to pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery.
SuperSump® Premier Pump System
One of our most economical systems, but no less effective, is the SuperSump®. This system includes a Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour out of your basement. Like the TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System, this system can be installed with the UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump for added security.
SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System
This system is designed for crawl spaces and is equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump. Like our more robust systems, the SmartSump™ has the option for the UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump. This pump not only fits with the CleanSpace® liner, but has an alarm to notify you of any water accumulation in your crawl space.
