Water is one of the biggest threats that any home, or structure, can face. It can cause structural damage, loss of personal possessions, and mold or mildew. The thing about water is, it doesn’t have to come in large amounts to cause damage. Even a little bit of moisture could create expensive problems for you and your family. It is better to be prepared than to be taken by surprise. Sump pumps should be a staple in every home when it comes to waterproofing basements. If you are in need of sump pump installation or repair then look no further. Basement Masters Waterproofing has you covered.
The first step to a successful sump pump is the installation of drainage pipes under the basement floor and around the outside of the foundation. Drainage tubes and other drainage systems gather moisture from around and under your basement slab and empty it into the sump pump basin. Once the basin reaches a certain level, the water will be pumped to a safe distance away from the home. As a homeowner, you will want to know everything you can about sump pumps before making a purchase. Not all sump pumps are created equal but we will provide you with the information you need and the best product for your budget and situation. We want to help you protect your biggest investment, your home.
Certain store-bought brands of sump pumps will not be able to live up to the amount of moisture that your home and foundation will endure during a given year. You’ll want to talk with a professional before a big purchase so you can guarantee that you are getting the best product possible. Basement Masters Waterproofing’s sump pumps are much higher quality than those you can buy from a retail outlet. You do not want an inadequate pump failing when you need it most.

Poorly installed sump pumps can be problematic during especially cold winters. If pipes are not correctly attached, you will find that your sump pump is frozen. Frozen pipes will prevent moisture from being expelled from your basement and could possibly result in the sump pump overflowing during a large winter snowfall or rainstorm. You need to make sure that the people you hire to install your pump know exactly what they are doing. No other company has years of experience in the waterproofing business like Basement Masters Waterproofing. We guarantee that you will be satisfied with the quality of your sump pump.
Sump pumps are powered by electricity and like any electrical appliance, if the power goes out then the sump pump will stop running. This can be a serious issue, especially since power outages commonly occur during big thunderstorms. So, in order to maintain the protection of your home and in order to keep the sump pump system working, it is always wise to purchase a battery backup pump. Battery backup pumps will switch to the battery as a power source if the main electricity ever cuts out. This way you can have peace of mind, knowing that your sum pump will keep your home dry during any storm.
