The best solution for basement waterproofing is to eliminate all traces of water and moisture from entering the basement to provide a dry living space free from dampness and humidity. Correcting your wet basement problem may be easier to do from the inside of your home, but is it a long term solution? This approach may prevent water from actually entering your basement living area, but it will not prevent water from coming in contact with your home on the outside and causing damage to your foundation walls. And since the foundation forms the base of your home or business, it is crucial to prevent any damage to its integrity. The BEST solution to your wet basement issue offers the opportunity to stop the problem at the source, which is the only true long-term waterproofing approach you can count on.

And if your property elevations do not allow for a natural gravity flow from your drainage system, you will need a good, reliable sump pump to mechanically remove any water collected. BEST Plumbing and Drainage Contractors are happy to offer advice on proper sump pump selection and worry-free installations.

Sump Pumps are usually sold according to the horsepower of the motor. Units will come in sizes such as 1/4 hp, 1/3 hp, or 1/2 hp. While the size of the motor is important, an even more vital factor to sump pump usefulness, is the gallons per hour that the unit is capable of moving. For instance, 1/2 hp units can remove anywhere from 3,000 to 7,500 gallons per hour; that's a big variance. There are also a wide variety of units and systems to deal with power outages. Inverters are one choice. An inverter can power your regular unit by converting automobile size batteries into AC current. Another option is to look at battery backup sump pumps. These units can range in size from 400 gallons per hour to 3,000 gallons per hour. These units come with an automatic battery charger to recharge your batteries after use. A good battery backup sump pump can really save you from costly damages.
