Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Failing Sump Pump Soaks Basement in Amaranth, Ontario

Friday, September 11th, 2020 by Dan Koehler


Keeping your basement dry is essential, but sometimes it can be out of your control. We do what we can with what we have, but sometimes it takes professional help to get to the bottom of an issue.

A customer in Amaranth, Ontario, reached out to us to deal with seeping water in his basement. He was tired of always walking on wet concrete when he was down there, and his current sump pump was no longer working. He was also dealing with a discharge line that would continuously freeze, leading to even more water in the basement.


After meeting with our System Design Specialist, the customer finally had a solution for his wet basement problem. Our Specialist designed a unique system for his basement, and a date was set for the repair.

Our Foreman started by replacing the original sump pump with our SmartSump®. We also swapped out the current discharge line with our IceGuard® system, which comes with a built-in overflow to prevent backups.

The homeowner is thrilled with the work done. Their basement is dry, and they finally have a discharge line that works properly.
