When you purchase a new-to-you home, you expect there to be some minor issues, but worrying is the last thing you want to do.
Max and Rima had just purchased their new place in Toronto, Ontario when they realized the existing sump pump had seen better days. The pit constantly had water in it, and they were concerned during a heavy flood, it would spill over.
Foreman Dave Jackson and his crew, Installation Specialists Alan Murphy and Bryan Richards removed the old unit and cleaned the pit. The new system consists of three motors, including one that runs off a battery backup. In addition, a new discharge line was dug for added peace of mind, preventing any blockages caused by freezing.
Max and Rima are happy to have peace of mind as they settle into their new home, and they appreciate the work from the Clarke Basement Systems team.
