Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Sump Upgrade Protects Rochester, NH Home From Flooding

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018 by Nick Hafford


A homeowner living in Rochester, NH was suffering from damp basement conditions. With a sump in their basement floor, they were still experiencing flooding when the rain was too much for the sump to handle. Searching for a solution to their problem, they looked online. Once they found TC Hafford Basement Systems, they knew just who to call!


As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on the basement floor. Within the sump, a SuperSump sump pump was installed. This device can force over 2,600 gallons of water every hour up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line. Taking power from the home, the SuperSump was susceptible to power outages. To protect against this, an UltraSump backup battery was attached to the nearest wall. The UltraSump will provide the SuperSump with an 11,000 gallon-lifespan before requiring a charge. This will keep the basement safe against flooding from even the harshest storms.

With these sump upgrades in place, this homeowner will no longer need to worry about their basement during any heavy rainfall. The SuperSump & UltraSump combination will keep this basement floor water-free for years to come!
