Crawl Space Sump Pump
A crawl space sump pump is one of the most important components in a crawl space waterproofing system. The sump pump is installed in the sump pit that serves as the collection point for an interior drainage system.
A ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing crawl space sump pump can be installed as part of our crawl space encapsulation system. In this case, the 20-mil liner is tucked into the sump lid to maintain an airtight connection. Our crawl space sump pump systems discharge water out the side of the basin and up a discharge pipe at the wall—presenting a nice clean finish.
A sump pump can remain idle for days or weeks. But when wet weather arrives, the waterproofing system must be prepared to do its work. The drainage channel (also referred to as a French drain) installed along the crawl space perimeter walls will capture the water before it can reach the crawl space floor. This helps to reduce the water pressure that is sitting against the foundation. As water flows through the drainage system, the sump pit fills up and the sump pump expels the water to outside your home.
The bottom line with any sump pump is easy to understand: It pays to have a premium-quality sump pump with a no-nonsense warranty. This gives you the peace of mind that your crawl space waterproofing system will always function as it should.
To better ensure that your crawl space remains dry all the time, it is highly recommended that you consider a battery backup pumping system. This will provide extra protection against the unexpected, such as power outages. Ask our Foundations Specialists about our battery backup pump systems.
One of our Foundations Specialists will perform a thorough inspection and you’ll be asked some questions. This is to properly understand your home’s crawl space problems and to properly develop a solution for your crawl space’s moisture and water problems.
