Time To Re-Attach Your Discharge Pipe Extensions

Just a quick reminder that it’s time to re-attach your discharge pipe extensions to move water away from your foundation. When we install a basement waterproofing system in your home, most often we install two discharge pipes leading from the sump to the exterior of your house. These pipes protrude a few inches from your home. The homeowner is responsible for installing the extension pipes when things warm up … and then, taking them off for the winter. It’s all right there in our literature, but sometimes folks miss it.

We are happy to come out and re-install your extension pipes but keep in mind this is not a part of your system installation … it’s a maintenance issue. If you request we make a service call there will be a fee connected to it. Again, we’re more than happy to come help you out but as this regular maintenance is the homeowners responsibility, as spelled out in our literature, we will have to charge you for it.
