How Reliable Is Your Sump Pump?

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 by Betsy Rathburn

Sump Pump

We meet lots of homeowners who try to take basement waterproofing into their own hands. They try to patch leaky wall cracks on their own, break out the wet/dry vac every spring, or – as shown in the photo above – throw together their own sump pump using an old bucket and a hose. All of these temporary solutions – especially the sump pump – are disasters waiting to happen. Often, the sump pump is your first defense against basement flooding, so you need a good one if you want to make sure your basement stays dry. How reliable is yours?

There are plenty of sump pumps on the market today, but if you want your basement to stay dry for the long haul, you need one that goes above and beyond what the average sump pump does. That’s where Innovative Basement Authority comes in.

With our top-of-the-line SafeDri Pro sump pump – not to mention our BasementGutter drainage system, waterproof finishing products, and the rest of our extensive waterproofing line – you can rest assured that your basement will stay dry for the long haul. But what sets the SafeDri Pro apart from the competition?

SafeDri Pro pumps are equipped with an airtight lid to keep humidity and odors out of your basement. The SafeDri Pro is also just the right size: other options often have liners that go down too deep, causing the sump to pump unnecessary water, but the SafeDri Pro is neither too big nor too small, making it as efficient as it is effective. Minnesota and North Dakota owners will appreciate the addition of FreezeGuard, a proven protection from frozen discharge lines in the winter.

But the feature the homeowners we work with are most excited about? You can get your SafeDri Pro pump equipped with a Alarm. The alarm will sound if the water in your basement rises past the point where your sump should have turned on. In combination with the rest of the SafeDri Pro’s great features, the Alarm makes SafeDri Pro pumps a failsafe method of keeping your basement dry.

Are you ready to dry your basement once and for all? Sump pumps don’t get any more reliable than the SafeDri Pro. In a basement with perimeter drainage systems like our BasementGutter system, SafeDri Pro is the only way to go!
