Wednesday, May 13th, 2020 by John Cossey

Challenge

Homeowner  Steve T was having extreme water issues in his crawl space. Steve called in saying everytime it rained water would come in flooding his entire crawlspace out. A friend of his refered him to the experts at Crawl Space Solutions of Arkansas to get a free inspections. 

Solution

Having water issues in your basebemt or crawl space is never an ideal situation. Water issues can cause bateria and mold to build and even though it's under your house, it can seep up into your living room; where you would be force to beath in toxicns. When are systems specialsits arrived to Steves house we had to devlepop a plan on making sure Steve and his family were well protected. The system specialtist decided to go with our SmartSump Pump, UltraSump Pump and our IceGuard  to prevent mold from coming back.

The Smart Sump- is designed just for crawl spaces. The liner and lid are designed to form a tight seal around the cleanspace liner. The SmartSump has a unique lid design so water from plumbing leak fills n alarm pocket on the lid first, sounding a Water Watch alarm. From there, the water flows down a special airtight floor drain that lets water down, but damp air cannot come up into your crawl space. The alarm also alerts you to pump or power failurs. Which brings me to the next product, which is the Ultrsump- we recommend a back- up system. THe UltraSump is a battery back up system- that will turn on automatically if the primary pump fails to operate. THe Ultra Sump includes a second DC operated pump, a second automatic switching styem a smart charging system and a high quality 120 amp battery. 

The last thing this homeowner installed was the IceGuard- The Ice Guard system allows water to escape from a sump pump discharge line if the pipe freezes or becomes blocked for any reason. Even if the pipe outlet is buried under a foot of ice and snow , the water can escape, allowing your sump pump to keep your basement dry. When the discharge pipe thaws the water will automatically run along its normal route and no water will escape from the IceGuard
