A sump pump is an essential element of a basement drainage system. Water seeping into a basement and damaging the foundation is a year-round concern for your clients, and a sump pump drainage system helps by removing the excess water. But what happens when the sump pump system fails or breaks down? Equipping a basement with a Hydraway residential sump pump helps prevent water from leaking into a home’s tight spots.
Hydraway’s residential sump pump consists of different components that create an effective, high-performance system:
The sump pit is a small hole in the lowest area of the home where the sump pump device sits.
The discharge pipe is the line that directs water out of the basement.
The check valve is a one-way valve that prevents the water from flowing backward.
The pressure sensor detects the presence of water and turns on the sump pump.
A centrifugal pump pushes the water out of the sump pit, creating a void that’s filled with more water.
The impeller is a fan-like device that pushes water through the discharge pipe using centrifugal force.
The Hydraway residential sump pump drainage system works in unison with the Hydraway Waterproofing System. This system contains the following parts:
The Hydraway 2000 is a flat-strip drain solution that’s more durable than other drainage systems and provides superior performance. Manufactured with needle-punched fabric, the Hydraway 2000 allows water to flow into the system’s thermally bonded, plastic-molded structure.
The Hydraway 300 is the most highly functional drain board system on the market today. It’s placed along the interior foundation walls to relieve hydrostatic pressure and eliminate water.
The Hydraway Drainage System works in unison. The sump pump removes the excess water from a basement and pumps it to the Hydraway 300. The Hydraway 2000 receives the water from the Hydraway 300 and channels it far away from the basement.
Hydraway’s residential sump pump is the best on the market because it succeeds where other sump pump systems fail. Here are some common areas where our competitors fall short and why Hydraway doesn’t:
Significant weather events and power outages sometimes go hand in hand, and traditional sump pumps are at risk of failure when the power goes out. That’s because some sump pumps don’t have a battery backup that kicks on when external power is disconnected.
Our sump pumps come with an optional battery backup system that automatically turns on in the event of a power outage. The backup battery case and charger are installed on the basement floor next to the pump.
Sump pumps expel excess water from discharge lines that lead away from a house. The discharge lines can’t effectively flow water out of the system when clogged with debris, and the sump pump fails.
The Hydraway Drainage System features a polypropylene filtration device that never clogs. This filtration system is one reason why there has never been a reported failure for a properly installed Hydraway system.
Sometimes a single sump pump is overworked by too much water. A pump that isn’t powerful enough eventually stalls and breaks down.
Hydraway offers single, double, and triple residential sump pump systems to accommodate extreme situations. Our drainage system features modern drainage technology that provides a better inflow rate than traditional perforated pipes.
A traditional sump pump that’s too small has to work harder to pump out water and breaks down quicker.
