Sump Pumps

A sump pump system is the heart of a basement waterproofing drainage system. West Michigan Waterproofing installs new and services existing sumps pumps. All sump pump installations come with a 2-year warranty.

HOW DOES A SUMP PUMP WORK?

Groundwater from below the basement floor flows to the sump basin using gravity. When enough water has been collected in the basin, the automated float switch turns the sump pump on. This water is pumped through our PVC discharge line to the exterior of the home. From there, the PVC discharge transitions into a buried 4” drain pipe to a distance at least 10ft away from the home. At the end of this buried discharge we install a round pop-up drain emitter. This emitter opens when in use, and automatically closes to keep out debris and animals. As an added convenience, the drain emitter can be mowed and landscaped over without removal. By utilizing a 4” drain pipe we eliminate the possibility of freeze ups in the winter months. 

West Michigan Waterproofing has chosen a 1/2hp cast iron submersible pump for our installations. This pump has proven to be very reliable and powerful, along with having a quiet operation. The float style is a simple and robust vertical style that requires no maintenance. West Michigan Waterproofing warranties the pumps for 2 years.
