Most municipalities that require a permit also require a sump pump. The pump is normally discharged to the existing downspout
leader, where the gutters enter the storm sewer. There are many circumstances that require an alternative connection, such as
trenching a line to a culvert drain, installation of a dry well, natural watershed....ect.
Most of our basement waterproofing installations require a sump pump as well. In most cases the pump motor itself is a 1/3 or 1/2 horsepower
motor. Capable of discharging up to 2750 gallons of water per hour.
The location of the sump pump
crock is usually in an inconspicuous
corner of the home. Located near a downspout (storm sewer). This allows the water around the foundation to exit the home quickly.
Included in most pump installations is a 20 amp electrical circuit. Please understand that we do a very thorough installation from top to bottom.
Make sure that any contractor bidding on your project is including permits for electrical and plumbing.
