Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Replacing a Plymouth Homeowner's Sump Pump

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 by Ryan Anderson


The homeowner called Innovative Basement Systems  after discovering their basement began to flood. They used their basement as a storage area and did not want their belongings being stored to get ruined. After the initial call was made to Innovative our specialist arrived at their home to find their 30 year old sump pump was not working, and was so hot it was actually causing the water in the sump hole to boil.  We had to find a solution that would give this homeowner piece of mind permanently. Additionally the husband had major health concerns which required a lot of travel out of town for treatment.  The homeowner wanted a healthy living environment as well as piece of mind when they leave town so they don’t have to worry about their sump pump failing again. 


To fix the problem our specialist recommended a SuperSump with a UltraSump Battery Backup System. This setup will give the homeowner a sealed pump so their environment remains healthy. Additionally our UltraSump Battery Backup Systems allows the homeowner to be confident even during a power outage that their basement will still be safe and sound. Upon installation, the SuperSump went to work instantly and is able to keep their basement dry so the homeowner can get back to using it as a much needed storage space.
