Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: TripleSafe Sump System Keeps Basement Dry for Homeowners in Shedd, Oregon

Friday, December 22nd, 2017 by Kayla Cree


A couple recently moved to Shedd, Oregon and bought a house there. They had noticed a few signs of past water damage in the basement but didn't think too much of it. Until they experienced their first plumbing leak in the home and they're basement flooded. After going through that, they wanted to make sure that it never happened again and that their basement would stay dry, no matter what. 


The best thing for these homeowners was a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is the world's most reliable pumping system and will keep the basement dry with three times the protection. Having a sump pump is necessary for waterproofing a basement. But what happens when the sump pump fails? Or if there is a plumbing leak and the basement floods? And what about power outages? With the TripleSafe sump pump, homeowners don't have to worry about any of these possibilities. The first pump is a reliable, efficient and smooth-running cast iron pump. The second pump kicks in if the first pump ever fails or if there is a plumbing leak and too much water for the first pump to handle on its own. Together, they can remove up to 6200 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The third pump is a DC battery operated and begins working in the event of a power outage. There's also a built-in WaterWatch alarm system in the TripleSafe which will alert the homeowners of a problem before any damage has actually occurred. With the TripleSafe sump pump, these homeowners can enjoy their new home without ever having to worry about a flooded basement.
