Water in your crawl space is more serious than you might think. Excessive moisture can cause mold growth, impact air quality, and affect your property’s foundation.

So consider The Basement Guys’ crawl space waterproofing solutions, including our cutting-edge AquaStop™ sump pumps. These products remove water from your downstairs space, providing ongoing peace of mind.

What Are Crawl Space Sump Pumps?

The AquaStop™ Crawl Space Sump Pump protects your crawl space from excessive moisture and water damage. We can position this system in the lowest part of your crawl space in a sump basin, allowing it to extract water from your property via a designated discharge line.

When used with encapsulation, dehumidification, and other methods, a sump pump can enhance your home’s air quality and protect your foundation.

Signs Your Crawl Space Needs a Sump Pump

You might need a sump pump in your crawl space if you notice these signs:

  • Musty smells, indicating mold growth
  • High humidity
  • Pest invasions
  • Rotting wood
  • Sagging floors
  • Wear and tear on insulation
  • Higher energy costs
  • Standing water or flooding
  • Drainage problems

Is Crawl Space Waterproofing Necessary?

Waterproofing your crawl space with a sump pump prevents damage from excessive moisture. Addressing water-related problems early can avoid expensive repair bills in the future.

We never recommend DIY repairs because it can be dangerous to enter your crawl space. So call in the professionals to do the job properly!

Different Types of Crawl Space Sump Pumps

We have sump pump systems that satisfy your particular needs:

AquaStop™ Mini/Single Sump Pump System

This system comes with a compact basin for narrow crawl spaces and utilizes a powerful SafeDri™ cast iron pump for standard water extraction. Usually, we install the SafeDri™ 1/3 hp pump, which can dispel more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour.

AquaStop™ Single with Battery Backup

Adding a backup battery to our single sump pump system ensures water removal of more than 11,500 gallons per hour, even during power outages.

AquaStop™ Triple Sump Pump System

This system features three pumps, making it our most efficient offering:

  • The primary SafeDri™ 1/3 hp pump handles regular water removal.
  • An additional SafeDri™ ½ hp pump processes more than 3,000 gallons per hour.
  • A third battery-operated backup pump guarantees uninterrupted operation during power outages.

Advantages of a Crawl Space Sump Pump

Adding a sump pump to your crawl space can be beneficial for several reasons:

  • Standing Water Removal: Sump pumps get rid of all standing water, protecting your home.
  • Lower Humidity and Reduced Mold: A dry crawl space reduces humidity, preventing mold growth and musty smells.
  • Better Indoor Air Quality: A dry crawl space enhances the quality of air in your home, helping your family breathe better.
  • Structural Integrity: Removing moisture from your crawl space preserves your property’s foundation.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency: An encapsulated crawl space prevents drafts and heat loss, increasing energy efficiency.
  • Healthier Living Environment: Clean air and a dry crawl space make your home a safer place to live.

We highly recommend installing a crawl space sump pump to protect your home from flooding and moisture issues.

A crawl space sump pump is worth the investment, especially if your crawl space experiences flooding or water accumulation. Sump pumps prevent pooling water, water damage, mold, and structural issues, to protect your home’s integrity.

It is possible to install your own crawl space sump pump; however, if you don’t know all of the details that go into a job and aren’t prepared to handle your home’s unique soil, we recommend calling an expert like is. If one detail is out of line, the whole project could cause more problems than it’s meant to solve.
