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 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.
Although every basement waterproofing jobs starts inside, the projects can often extend outside of the home. This drainage pipe was run as far away from the foundation of the home as possible. We do whatever we can to try and return a home or the yard it sits on, back to normal once we complete a project.
Homeowners in Markham, VA had water intrusion in their basement on multiple occasions and were ready to fix the problem. After receiving a free evaluation, they decided to take the steps needed to ensure their basement stays dry all the time. The 3 Pros Basement Systems team installed CleanSpace on the walls, WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement, and our TripleSafe Sump Pump. WaterGuard is an interior basement drainage system in which water enters via inlet holes and flows through the drainage pipe to the sump pump. Most sump pumps fail because of either a failed pump, a pump that can't handle high volumes of water or power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three sump pump problems.
Having a sump pump can save you from potential basement flooding. When a sump pump is working, it handles more than just water. It also pumps in the loose dirt and sediment that comes along with that unwanted basement water. Annual service is the key to keeping your sump pump clean and working the way it is supposed to. Here you have a great example of a sump pump that has been doing its job. Taking it apart and cleaning out the corrosion, dirt, and nastiness that is collected while it pumps out water is part of our service and maintenance coverage. We service clients who had their units installed by us and clients with old units that need service.
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.
