Sump Pumps


A sump pump is the heart of a basement or crawl space waterproofing system. This electrically powered device does all the heavy lifting to keep your basement dry: It pumps water out of your basement or crawl space, after the water collects in a sump pit dug into the floor (N.B., Please take note that your sump pump setup doesn’t have to be an eyesore, as it can be discreetly housed in a durable plastic sump liner with an airtight cover.)
