Sump Well and Sump Pump Installation:
Sump Pumps help drain water from the house, diverting it away from the living area, to a dry well or to a storm drain. One of the major reasons for a basement sump pump system is due to the fact that this installation alleviates the hydrostatic pressure building under, and around your home’s foundation. Sump pump installation is essential, particularly in places subjected to regular basement flooding. Basement flooding may be caused due to a number of reasons, like a broken pipe, a crack in the foundation or when the water table is above the foundations of your home. A sump pump is usually installed in lower parts of the basement or crawl space, in your building.
DryShield Water Solutions with our 25 years of experience in the waterproofing market have installed numerous sump pumps, for both commercial as well as residential buildings, in and around Ontario. We are experts in sump pump installation Toronto. DryShield’s focus on quality and trust has made us the most reliable waterproofing company in the industry.
How We Work?
Our contractors, at DryShield, install the sump pumps usually at the bottom of a pit called the sump pit. The pumps we use are submersible, meaning that they have a hermetically sealed motor attached to their pump body. The reason that we place a basement sump pump system at the lowest point of elevation in the area, is because the natural slope of ground aids in the free flow of the diverted drained water into the drainage system.We only install premium industrial sump pumps ranging from 1/4 hp, 1/2 hp, 3/4 hp, or 1 hp. We also install battery operated pumps as backups, based on the requirements of the area. In addition to this, DryShield provides you with a basement sump pump alarm system, which sends a water level notification to your cell phone. We always recommend our customers to connect all new drainage systems to a sump pump. This maximizes the foundation drainage and also helps keep the weeping tiles clear. A properly installed sump pump is an additional protection, to your building and belongings, from damage that can be caused by unpredicted basement floods.
