Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Sump Upgrade Protects Berwick, ME Basement from Flooring

Monday, February 25th, 2019 by Nick Hafford


A homeowner who lived in Berwick, ME was experiencing problems with the sump they had in their basement. When the rain outside the home was above average or the home lost power, the sump would become overwhelmed and overflow across the basement floor. The homeowner was tired of dealing with their basement flooding and sought a solution to their problem online. Once they found TC Hafford Basement Systems, they knew right away they found the company right for the job! They gave us a call and we set them up with their free estimate. Once they decided to have the job done, we dispatched our crew and got to work.


As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they were able to begin work on the basement. To keep the leaking water from overwhelming the sump in the future, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This new pump houses three pumps within itself, each serving a function. The primary pump will handle the bulk of the water entering the basement, with the secondary pump only activating to help the primary pump in the event that it either fails or cannot keep up with the amount of water. Finally, the third pump within the TripleSafe is a battery-operated backup pump. This pump will activate when the home loses power to keep the basement dry even in the harshest conditions.

With their newly upgraded sump, this homeowner can now rest assured their basement will no longer flood during heavy rainfall. The TripleSafe sump pump will ensure this basement floor stays dry for many years to come!
