Sump Pump Installation
Professional Sump Pump Installation in Grand Rapids
Foundation Specialist can install basement and crawl space sump pumps in your Western Michigan area home. If you are like most homeowners, you know what goes on in your basement or crawl space. However, most homeowners also don’t care if they have leaks underneath their home. They figure that if they don’t need to regularly go into this area of their home, then it doesn’t really matter what kind of condition it may be in. This is not the way you should be thinking! Regardless of what you use your basement or crawl space for, you need to be sure that it’s safe, dry, and healthy. If not, it could be causing a lot of problems for you, your home, and even for your family’s health and well-being.
Basement and Crawl Space Moisture
Basement and crawl space moisture can be incredibly dangerous. It typically will come in through cracks in the floors or walls in a basement, and through openings in an unsealed crawl space. This moisture can cause a lot of damage to wooden support beams and floor joists underneath your home. These are things that help to support the weight of your house, so if there’s a problem with them, you’re going to know about it! Basement and crawl space moisture can seriously endanger the structural integrity of your entire home!

FreezFlow – Frozen Discharge Line Protection
During the winter season, when the outdoor temperature falls below freezing, the discharge line of your sump pump that leads outside can become obstructed with snow or ice. This can result in your sump pump being stuck in the “on” position, as the water level in the basin will not be discharged outside, leading to continuous running and potential failure of the sump pump. To prevent basement flooding caused by a frozen outdoor line, the solution is to add FreezFlow to the outside discharge line. FreezFlow connects the 1 1/2″ discharge from the sump pump to the larger 4″ line outside and incorporates specially designed vents to allow water to flow through, even if the outside line is obstructed with snow or ice. Additionally, in case of heavy rainfall where storm sewers are overwhelmed, FreezFlow will help prevent a backup by dispersing the excess storm water.
