What Is the AquaStop™ Basement Sump Pump System?

The AquaStop™ Basement Sump Pump System draws water away from your basement, safeguarding your property’s foundations. We place this device at the lowest point in your basement to prevent basement flooding and structural damage.

With regular maintenance, the AquaStop™ Basement Sump Pump System will keep your basement dry for many years.

AquaStop™ sump pumps are just one of the many basement waterproofing solutions available at The Basement Guys, which has served homeowners in the Greater Cleveland metro area for over two decades.

You might benefit from our sump pump system if you notice any of these issues in your basement:

  • Wet basement walls

  • A musty basement smell
  • Mold growth
  • Efflorescence on walls of floors
  • Leaky windows

A sump pump is a device installed in a basement or crawl space to prevent flooding. Sump pumps remove excess water accumulation in a sump basin. It activates when water reaches a certain level, pumping it outside the area to keep the space dry and moisture-free.

Yes, plumbers and waterproofing specialists, like The Basement Guys®, install sump pumps to manage water drainage and prevent basement flooding. They have the expertise to assess the appropriate placement and size of the sump pump and ensure optimal installation, adhering to building codes and regulations.

Sump pumps should not be turned off unless necessary for maintenance or repair purposes. Sump pumps operate automatically, so keeping them turned on ensures continual protection against flooding, especially during heavy rainfall or when water table levels rise.
