Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump

Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump

Before After
Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump Upgrading a Basement Sump Pump

This homeowner needed a new sump pump installed as part of a basement waterproofing system. Their old one was an open pit, that allowed odors and moisture to rise into the basement and be pulled up into the living space. 


Their new pump is a large basin that houses a 1/3hp pump covered with an air-tight lid. The system has a float on top allowing for water to enter if a leak occurs from above, and the basin is large enough that if the homeowner later feels a need to add a pump or battery backup system, they can do so without having to re-dig the hole or replace the basin. A clean pump stand keeps the sump out of any grime, grit, and sediment that may collect in the bottom of the basin to prevent clogs.

Water has been seeping through the porous block walls in the basement of this home. It has left behind bubbling paint and staining on the walls as well as a musty, damp environment. To control the water seeping into the basement, we've worked with the homeowner and determined a Waterproofing system with CleanSpace and DryTrak is the best solution. 


As part of the Waterproofing System, CleanSpace is attached to the basement walls. The heavy-duty vapor barrier will direct water that works its way through the cinderblock wall down into the drainage track and ultimately to the sump pump and away from the home. Clean Space is a great option because it's heavy-duty and allows the homeowner to frame and finish their basement over the system making the space useable, and adding valuable square footage to their home without the worry of damage to their property.

We met this homeowner at a home show, where they asked us to come to inspect their crawl space because they were interested in encapsulating it due to moisture and mildew-mold concerns. This section of the crawl space is under an addition. The vapor barrier is unsealed, allowing moisture to rise from the ground and contribute to high relative humidity. Microbial growth is beginning on the floor joists and the fiberglass insulation is beginning to sag and fall.

The old materials have been removed, vents sealed, and the sill plate and rim band have been sealed as well. The CleanSpace vapor barrier has been installed with all seams overlapped and sealed. The moisture barrier is also run up the walls 6-8 inches above outside grade. The walls are prepped for spray foam insulation to be applied.

Crawl Space Repair Experts

Your crawl space is often out of sight and thus out of mind, but that doesn't mean your crawl space isn't important. In fact, issues with your crawl space can often make their presence felt throughout the rest of your home. Many crawl spaces are vented, and this ineffective practice often makes them the perfect home for mold, pests, and more. The air that passes through this crawl space will then pick up these contaminants and bring them into the rest of your home. This air can also prove a source of cold floors and costly drafts.

The experts at The Drying Co./ThermalTec can help you transform your crawl space from a detriment into an asset. With crawl space encapsulation we can completely seal your crawl space to prevent the drafts and pests that can make it a filthy space in the first place. We also offer other crawl space repair solutions like crawl space insulation, dehumidifiers, and support jacks.

Want to improve energy efficiency and help keep the attic at a more reasonable temp. I don't think anything has been updated since construction in 1988 and want to see what options are.

Poor energy efficiency with very hot upstairs compared to lower levels. Drip from HVAC system we think from lack of insulation around system.
