The SuperSump® sump pump system is installed in another area of the basement to ensure the entire basement as a whole is protected.
This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through the foundation walls around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement and get a permanent solution for their long-time family home, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home to assess the situation and provide the homeowner's with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specifically to address all of the homeowner's concerns. Our Production Team was able to then come to the home and install our patented WaterGuard® drainage system. The WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System is designed with a built-in wall flange, which extends up your basement wall by 3/8", capturing any water leaking from the walls. The water will move downward and behind this flange where it is then directed to the TripleSafe™ and the SuperSump® sump pump system. The TripleSafe™ provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump which is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. From there the system will discharge any water entering the sump pumps to the exterior of the home passing through our patented IceGuard® systems, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged. Finally, the discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Lawnscape Outlet. The LawnScape™ Outlet is a pipe buried from the downspout to a special LawnScape™ outlet that lets the water out onto the surface while camouflaging the end of the pipe. The lid comes off for easy cleaning, minimizing maintenance for your home. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home is protected by not only, 1 sump system but 2 to ensure absolute full protection.
