If the sump pump stops for any reason, the system will fail and your basement may get wet. That is why if you are going to rely on a sump pump to keep your basement dry, you should make it of the highest quality and make sure that it is regularly serviced.
At Floodbusters Basements, we recommend our GrateSump™ Sump Pump System. Our GrateSump™ liner has large punched holes that allow ground water to easily enter and to be pumped out and has a built in pump stand which keeps dirt away from the sump pump impeller.
We always recommend adding battery backup protection to our FastSump by upgrading to the GrateSump™ Plus or GrateSump™ Plus ll. It's common sense, with heavy storms often come power outages.
