Arid Basement Waterproofing HAS BEEN Serving New Jersey and New York Since 1963

Sump Pumps

Sump pumps are used where basement flooding happens regularly where the water table is above the foundation of a home. Sump pumps send water away from a house to any place where it will no longer be problematic.

A sump pump is a submersible pump sitting in a sub-floor basin that's typically 18" x 24". It is used to expel water that has accumulated in a water collecting basin (sump) from your house through a 1.5" PVC pipe.

On its own, a sump pump can help keep a very specific area of your basement dry, if the water seeps in from a single spot. However, sump pumps are most effective when integrated into a basement waterproofing system that includes a French drain. The French drain funnels water from all problem areas in your basement to the sump pump so it can be removed before it can cause any damage.

An integrated sump pump system will reduce the strain on your foundation and provide your house protection from flooding.
