Installation and Maintenance
When it comes to waterproofing your basement or crawlspace, one of the most important weapons in the D-Bug arsenal is the sump pump.
Water goes where it will, and in the basements of Pittsburgh area homes, completely preventing water from entering the structure is often impossible. The job of waterproofing becomes one of redirecting and controlling water flow to keep your living space dry and comfortable.
A common approach is to dig an Interior French Drain and direct water from the drain to a sump pump. A “sump” is the little well into which the water collects, and the pump pushes the water up and out of your basement through PVC piping. The water is directed through a lead-off that carries the water away from the house and drains it to the surface.
D-Bug Waterproofing installs many types of sump pumps for basements and crawl spaces. These include basement pump systems with battery backup, commercial grade sump pumps, and sewage grinder sump pumps (for residential applications).
We also replace sump pump switches or floats. In addition, D-Bug Inc. has a one-year warranty on new sump pumps, which is renewable after the year ends. During the warranty period, we service the pump and clean the sump.
Don’t wait for flooding to cause catastrophic damage to your basement! Make sure that you have a sump pump installed and in excellent working condition! Basement flooding can be a costly and extremely stressful experience!
Avoiding Sump Pump Problems
Like any mechanical system, sump pumps can run into trouble. Debris may work its way inside the sump pump and cause a blockage. Cold winter weather can freeze the discharge pipe, blocking the exit and causing the pump to run continually, even burning it out. In the worst case, the pump could overflow and flood your basement, exactly the problem it was installed to prevent!
The good news is that the D-Bug Waterproofing team are expert in Sump Pump installation, maintenance, and repair. We’ll keep your basement pump in top operational condition and your basement comfortable and dry.
