Have you ever heard of the saying “better safe than sorry”? This old adage rings especially true when it comes to protecting your basement from flooding. One of the most effective ways to do this is by installing a battery backup sump pump and dual discharge pipes to your existing basement waterproofing system.
A sump pump is an essential component in any home’s waterproofing system. Its job is to keep water out by pumping water from the lowest part of your basement or crawl space. A battery backup sump pump adds extra protection, as it can continue running even during power outages. It also acts as a failsafe if the primary pump stops working for any reason.
Homeowners should also consider installing dual discharge pipes. These pipes provide an alternate outlet for the water being pumped away from your home, which helps prevent backflow and flooding. As an added bonus, if one pipe gets blocked or clogged, the other will continue functioning as normal until it can be fixed or replaced.
Having both a battery backup sump pump and dual discharge pipes installed with your basement waterproofing system is a great way to ensure your peace of mind.
