A critical piece of any waterproofing system is the sump pump. Regardless of the waterproofing system installed, if the sump pump fails, there will be water in the basement. The sump pump is the heart of all basement waterproofing and the final stage in evacuating water from your basement.
Your Basement Deserves the
HEART of a Champion Sump Pump
The Champion Sump System features the most reliable pump on the market. The Champion Sump Pump is trustworthy and efficient. It will out-pump most major sump pump brands, while running on about half the electricity. The Champion Sump Pump is uniquely designed so the float switch will not get hung up in the sump basin and runs very quietly.
Champion Sump Pumps are SSPMA Certified
Sump pumps bearing the “SSPMA-Certified” seal have been tested and rated in accordance with stringent SSPMA [Sump & Sewage Pump Manufacturers Association] Industry Standards to verify they will perform as stated.
Greg’s Cautionary Tale…
Two next-door neighbors installed the exact same waterproofing system – one put in a battery back-up sump pump and one did not. A few years later a tornado came through town and the town lost power. Greg received two phone calls after that storm… the neighbor who did not purchase (but was offered) the battery back-up sump pump was very irate as their basement flooded when they lost power. The neighbor who invested in the battery back-up sump pump called to thank Greg that he recommended for him to purchase the battery back-up pump as his basement stayed dry.
You will not find a more reliable 12 volt DC backup pump system to secure that your basement will stay dry even under the harshest conditions.
Lids for Sump Pump Basins
The Sump Pump Basin Lid has a rubber gasket so there is an airtight seal between the barrel and the lid, protecting homeowners from dangerous gasses such as radon. The sealed lid is also very sturdy – holding up to 250 lbs of weight. A strong lid will keep young children or animals from falling into the sump pump basin.
Silent Check Valves
With the two flap silent check valves, it eliminates water flowing back down the pipe and slamming the check valve shut. The check valve is designed so it can be easily removed to replace the sump pump if necessary.
High Water Alarm
A high water alarm is the last line of defense in alerting homeowners of a potential problem before disaster hits. The high water alarm is sometimes also called a sump pump alarm. The high water alarm does not pump water, but warns homeowners that there is an issue with their sump pump(s) as the water level in the sump basin is rising.
Sump Pump Discharge Line
The Champion Sump System is not complete without an underground sump pump discharge line. Your sump pump discharge line can be buried underground and directed away from the house. The water expels out of the Sump Pump Discharge Line Pop-Up – a flip top bubbler pot that blends in perfectly with the lawn.
The Sump Pump Discharge Line Pop-Up accepts 3″ & 4″ black solid corrugated drain tile pipe. Not-perforated is recommended so it does not break during freezing weather.
