Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: TripleSafe Sump Pump Saves the Day in Timber, Oregon

Challenge

There was a homeowner in Timber, Oregon who had recently turned his basement into a glorious "man-cave." After spending many months and a lot of money on creating his dream space, he had finally gotten it to be perfect. That is until there was a plumbing leak from his downstairs basement. Suddenly, his wonderful project was flooded. There was already a sump pump in the basement, but it couldn't handle that much of a sudden increase of water. Now this homeowner needed to make sure that this never happened again before he rebuilt his masterpiece.

Solution

Why have one sump pump when you could have a three-in-one system? The TripleSafe sump pump has three separate pumps. The first pump is the default one used most of the time. In the event of a plumbing leak like this homeowner had, the second pump kicks in. With these two pumps working together there is no risk of having too much water for them to handle. But what if there is a power outage? That's when the third pump comes into play. It's battery operated so that if there's ever a storm or some other issue with the electricity, the homeowner will still have a dry basement. The TripleSafe also has a built-in WaterWatch alarm system which will alert the homeowner if there is ever a plumbing leak before any damage is done. Now he can enjoy his "man-cave" with a piece of mind about the future of his dry basement.
