Hear from real customers about how Basement Systems sump pumps can prevent damage to your basement in severe weather.
A sump pump can be an incredibly valuable resource in your home. When water gets into your basement, the sump pump is what protects you from a flood that could cause expensive property damage. If you've had issues with water in your basement -- and even if you haven't -- it's smart to protect your home with a quality sump pump from 3 Pros Basement Systems.
We install several cast-iron sump pumps that provide reliable water removal in the basement. These sump pumps have been tested in the harshest conditions and passed with flying colors, and you can count on them to protect your home.

This Leesburg VA home had a full basement waterproofing project done. The interior of the home was equipped with a full Water Guard System to collect and deliver unwanted water to the newly installed Ultra Sump Pump which would then send the water outside of the home. In order to keep that same water from working its way back to the foundation of the home, it would need to be sent far away from the home. After installing the discharge lines from the outside of the home and Ice Guard to keep the pipes from freezing up, several feet of Lawn Escape was buried in the ground and finished with a grate cover to allow the water to move down hill into the back yard of the home, away from the house.
This Chantilly VA home had an excessive amount of unwanted water collecting in the crawl space. The dirt floors were often muddy and due the moisture in the air, there was mildew all around the crawl space and a musty smell. The musty smell and air from the crawl space was able to impact the quality of air in the home above. Our Basement and Crawl Space Expert Eric was able to design a plan to contain the unwanted water, direct it to a newly installed sump pump and have it discharged far out into the yard. With Clean Space covering the floors and walls, it will not keep the crawl space dry and with no musty smell.
This Fairfax VA home had a sump pump that has been doing its job. Because of that, it was covered in corrosion, dirt, and sediment that came along with the dirty water it had been pumping out of the home for the last year. Our service tech Brent stopped in for an annual service check and got the pump cleaned and ready to keep working in the future.
Our service technician Brent Bevens visited this Clifton VA home for annual follow up service on a crawl space to check on the sump pump we installed last year. He removed the unit from its base/liner to clean and test it. Here is a nice visual of the before and after. Sump pumps by nature can get dirty and potentially clogged from sediment and dirt in the water they pump out of a home which makes our annual service all the more valuable.
Many homes have sumps pumps, but too often they are given the proper maintenance and regular service needed to keep them operating the way they need to in order to properly and safely function when unwanted water hits a basement. We helped remove the existing sump pump in this clients home and replaced it with a new unit along with proper drainage lines to discharge the water far away from the home, out into the yard.
The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
The ⅓ hp primary pump can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head, while the ½ hp secondary pump can discharge as much as 3,900 additional gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head. In the case of a tripped circuit, power outage, or sump failure, your TripleSafe™'s UltraSump® Battery Backup System will kick in. A second battery can be hooked up to a single system for an even longer running time. All told, this system provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.
For an effective and more economical solution, consider our SuperSump® Premier Pump System. It is engineered to help keep the basement dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement. The SuperSump® can also be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
If you have had occasional water issues but not a severe flood, the SuperSump® may be the ideal option for your home. This complete system provides total protection, and like all of our sump pump systems, works perfectly with our drainage systems.
If you're looking for a crawl space sump pump installation, the SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System is the ideal option. The SmartSump™ is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. The SmartSump™ comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump. This sump pump is designed to fit with the CleanSpace® liner and has a sump alarm to ensure you are always aware of any water in your crawl space.
The SmartSump™ system comes with a reliable Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower sump pump capable of pumping 2,500 gallons per hour at a 5-foot head. This system is designed to fit with our crawl space encapsulation system, ensuring that you have a completely dry, clean crawl space.
Of course, in many cases water issues in the basement are caused by severe weather that can knock out power. With that in mind, we created the UltraSump® Battery Backup System to ensure continued protection no matter what happens. In the event of loss of power the battery backup will automatically kick in and begin removing water from your basement, preventing a flood. The UltraSump® system can pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery, which is enough water to fill a small swimming pool!
The battery backup also comes with an alarm to alert you in case of power failure, sounding when the backup pump is running and silencing when power is restored. This alarm also protects you in case the main system is accidently unplugged, which could otherwise leave your basement unprotected. The UltraSump® can outlast generic backup pumps many times over, and an additional battery can be attached for further protection.

Our sump pump systems include the following features:
Sump pumps should always be installed with a perimeter drain system to ensure that all water is drained to the sump pit and removed from the basement.

As part of the international Basement Systems network, we have access to the best products and training available, giving you confidence that we can protect your home from water damage.

To prevent these issues, we also offer annual maintenance to ensure your system is working properly. During this process, we will inspect and clean the entire system, including the discharge lines.
