A sump pump is a major weapon in the fight against water in your basement. Combined with proper drainage and planning, our sump pump installation can also run on backup power in the event of electrical outage. We use Zoeller pumps which are highly durable, non-clogging and corrosion resistant.
Sump Pumps are a must in coastal basements on Long Island. Biordi Basement Waterproofing uses sump pumps in conjunction with french drains.
French drains are dug around the perimeter of your basement so when water comes in it is trapped at the edges. The water then flows along the drain and into a sump ( basically a lower area of the drain where water is allowed to gather harmlessly).
The sump pump is automatically activated when the water reaches a certain level sump and it pumps the water away, leaving your basement dry and mold or odor free.
