If you have basement water issues, then the only thing standing between you and a wet, flooding basement may be the sump pump system you have installed. If something goes wrong and it breaks down, malfunctions, or clogs (and you have no battery backup sump pump), then you're in for a long night.
When it comes to a sump pump system, there's a lot to learn, and like any other product, the more you know about it, the better purchase you can make. As a member of the Basement Systems International Network, Basement Systems Vancouver of British Columbia has the support of the largest waterproofing contractor network in the world.
Our sump pump systems are the most proven, reliable systems on the market. We're able to benefit from the knowledge, research, and experiences of waterproofers from all over the world.

A reliable sump pump is a lot more than just a simple pumping system. A sump pump should include a reliable, airtight liner, a sump pump alarm to let you know of failures, and sump pump stands to keep it off the bottom of the liner.
The system should have a proper discharge set up, and it should be quiet, effective, and able to drain water from plumbing leaks.
If you don't have a battery backup pump system, your home is in danger of flooding if the power goes out. And what happens if your discharge line freezes in the winter?

When we install a sump pump in your home, what can you expect?
We'll have our expert sump pump contractors dig a trench around the interior perimeter of your home. We'll remove a small section of the floor and dig out the space underneath.
After that, a clean bed of stone is laid underneath, and a sump pump drain is laid on top. We then install the sump pump pit and a discharge line is run to the outside of the house.
Our sump pump systems include the entire package - from a durable liner, to a special innovation on the traditional French drain design.

Your sump pump can fail in many ways, such as from a clogged system to a mechanical failure and power outages. If you're asleep, on vacation, or at work when your system fails, you might not find out there's a problem until you get home and notice that the basement has already flooded. At that point it's unfortuantely too late.
Having a backup and battery backup sump pump system in your home can give you the assurance you need that your basement is dry, and dry all the time! With a battery backup capable of pumping well over 11,500 gallons on a single charge, we have the system you need.

Similar to the other appliances in your home, your sump pump system contains mechanical parts, and these parts will eventually break down if not serviced. Beacause of this, Basement Systems Vancouver has a complete service team dedicated to ensuring that you can keep your system in optimal condition, while reexamining the basement to make sure no new problems have emerged. During one short visit, we can clean out your sump pump, test the system, and make sure that the battery and all parts are ready to keep your basement or crawl space dry the next time it ends up raining.
