Sump Pump Installation
Proudly Servicing the Greater Alabama Area
Sump pumps are the heart of a waterproofing system. In many homes the sump pumps are old, unreliable and create moisture and health problems in their basements or crawlspaces. The “builder’s grade” sump pumps that many of us have are unreliable and inefficient, and they do not provide the features we need. We can help you with all of your sump pump installation in Alabama needs.
Today very efficient high capacity sump pumps are available, like the Earth Contact Products BSP50. Now you can change out your old sump pump with a new modern sump pump and sealed sump pit with:
- High Performance Pumps
- Battery Backups
- Efficient Basin Designs
- Check Valves
- Built in Alarms
Modern sealed sump pump systems are highly reliable and keep running at optimal performance levels. Combining the pump systems with a sealed interior waterproofing or drainage system, will increase the value of your home as well as create the option of new, healthy living space.
Is a Sump Pump Necessary in Alabama?
Almost always, a sump pump is a great addition or upgrade to your basement. Do not risk your basement flooding due to out of date, unreliable, builder’s grade sump pumps. Today’s sump equipment is very reliable and adds to the health of your home. Quality waterproofing contractors have great, reliable sump pumps available, including single pump systems, battery backup sump pumps, and water alarms that keep your basement or crawlspace dry and healthy. This is why sump pump installation in Alabama is so important.
ECP sump pump systems are the very best available in the industry. Each sump pump system is designed to work in conjunction with a sealed basement waterproofing system to keep your basement dry all the time. These systems must be installed by trained sump pump installers from our national network of waterproofing contractors.
Primary Sump Pump Installation in Alabama
Your primary sump pump is your first line of defense against basement water. The sump pumps job is to remove any water that collects in the sump basin or pit. These pumps have a float system that tells it when to turn on and off. There are many types of floats or switches – mechanical, tethered, pressure and electronic. Since the switch mechanism is the number one reason for sump pump failure your focus needs to be on picking a high quality switch first. The best sump pump switches are the ones that have backup or dual switches. These dual switches provide redundancy in the case of switch failure. When it comes to protecting your home from water, two is always better than one.
The next feature to look for is performance. Performance is not just volume (gallons per hour) but also electrical efficiency. Gallons per watt hour, is a performance criteria that some sump pump manufacturers are starting to use. The highest performance pumps will pump over six gallons per watt hour, meaning that not only will it outperform (in GPH) your old sump pump but will use less electricity to do it.
