Dry Basements and Sump Basins
Sump pumps are a staple when it comes to basement waterproofing. Sump pumps are used for basement waterproofing and crawl space drainage purposes. At Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services, we use the very best Earth Contact Products (ECP) tools to ensure that your home gets the best treatment.
The ECP sump pump will help remove water that has accumulated around and under the foundation and direct it away from the foundation. The sump basin is a specific part of a sump pump system. It is the container located in the sump pit. The sump pump sits in the basin.
The sump pump basin is located inside the sump pit, and inside of the sump basin is the actual sump pump. All of these parts are placed at the lowest point in the basement so that the water can flow into the sump pit easier. When water or moisture enters your basement, it will flow into the basin.
Submersible and Pedestal Sump Pumps
The most common sump pump is the submersible sump pump. This pump is placed directly into the basin to effectively pump out water. Other types of pumps include the pedestal, which sits above the basin and doesn’t come into contact with the water.
A sump pump’s ability to function at its full capacity is only as good as its sump pump basin – make sure that you have a quality sump basin so that your sump pump can function well. Hoses are attached to the basin and water is then pumped outside of the home by the sump pump.
