What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a small pump that removes groundwater before it gets the chance to flood your home. Sump pumps are typically installed in something called a sump pit. The sump pit is a hole dug into the lowest part of your basement or crawl space that captures water as it flows from perimeter drains or down the natural ground slope. When the sump pit fills to a certain level, it triggers the sump pump to begin pumping water out of the pit and away from the home through a discharge line.
This process happens automatically, so there’s no pressure on you as a homeowner to be fiddling with your sump pump every time there’s a heavy storm. To give you further peace of mind, AquaGuard even offers backup pumps and sump pump alarms to ensure your system works when you need it most.
Benefits Installing a Sump Pump System
- Prevents flooding due to rainwater and sewage backups
- Helps regulate indoor humidity levels
- Reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth
- Protects against wood rot, pest infestations, electrical hazards, and other consequences of water damage
Our Sump Pump Systems and Products
At AquaGuard, we offer three different Zoeller® sump pump systems to meet your specific needs. All of our sump pump systems include the following features:
- WaterWatch® Alarm: Alerts the homeowner of sump pump failure.
- SuperLiner Sump Pump Liner: Also referred to as the sump pit, this liner is deep enough to keep the sump pump working without turning on and off frequently, but not so deep that your sump pump is pumping out unnecessary water.
- Airtight Sump Lid: Keeps out odor and humidity and protects your sump from debris.
- Adjustable CleanSump Stand: Raise pumps off the bottom of the liner to prevent the pump from being damaged by silt and sediment.
1. The TripleSafe™ Complete Sump Pump Protection System
The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection against basement flooding, making it our most reliable sump pump system.
TripleSafe™ uses a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller™ ⅓ horsepower sump pump for normal, everyday functions. Set a bit higher in the liner, a second Zoeller® sump pump—this one boasting ½ horsepower—kicks in for larger volumes of water or incase of primary pump failure. In case of a power outage, a third pump—the UltraSump® battery backup sump pump—is set at the highest level. This battery backup pump can discharge 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery.
With three separate pumps, the TripleSafe™ sump pump system is built to protect homes in the most adverse situations.
The specs on our more reliable system include:
- Cast-Iron Zoeller® ⅓ hp Primary Pump: Can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head from the basement
- Cast-Iron Zoeller® ½ hp Secondary Pump: Can discharge up to 3,900 additional gallons of water per hour with at an 8-foot head from the basement
- UltraSump® Battery Backup System: Can discharge more than 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge and has the option of hooking up a secondary battery for an even longer running time
The SuperSump® Sump Pump System
The SuperSump® Sump Pump System is identical to the TripleSafe™ system—just without the secondary pump. For normal use, the SuperSump® system is just as powerful, yet a more economical solution to basement and crawl space waterproofing.
The specs on our most economical system:
- Cast-Iron Zoeller® Primary Pump: The SuperSump® system can be installed with either a Zoeller® ⅓ hp or ½ hp pump. The ½ hp pump can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head, while the ½ hp pump can discharge 3,900 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head.
- Optional Battery Backup Pump Pump: The SuperSump® system can be installed with the UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump to protect against power outages. This backup system can discharge over 11,500 gallons of water per hour, with the option of hooking up a secondary battery for double the pumping time.
3. SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System
The SmartSump™ is a sump pump system specially designed for your crawl space. This system is made to be compatible with the CleanSpace® crawl space encapsulation products and is equipped with a sump alarm. The SmartSump™ comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump.
The specs on our crawl space sump pump system:
- Cast-Iron Zoeller® ⅓ hp Primary Pump: Capable of discharging 2,500 gallons per hour at a 5-foot head
- UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump: Capable of discharging up to 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge. A secondary battery can be installed to double the pumping time.
- WaterWatch® Alarm: Can alert homeowners when sump pumps fail to turn on when water has risen past a certain point.
IceGuard® Discharge Line Protection
We also offer IceGuard® Discharge Line Protection, a product that can be added to your sump pump system to protect your discharge line from freezing during cold months. This adapter is installed outside where the discharge line exits the home.
