Read on to learn more about the basement sump pumps offered by JES.
What Causes Basement Leaking and Flooding?
There are numerous reasons why your home’s basement can develop leaks or result in a complete flood.
One major culprit is hydrostatic pressure. When the soil directly around your foundation is saturated with water, both push against the wall to create this type of pressure. When this force becomes too much for your walls to handle, they will eventually crack and allow water to leak inside. Poor drainage, different soil types, underground water sources, and extreme weather can all contribute to hydrostatic pressure.
A settling foundation, resulting in cracks, bowing walls and other issues are common factors. Other reasons can include clogged footing drains, deteriorated exterior waterproof coatings, poorly pitched landscape and misaligned downspout problems.
Whatever the reason the SafeDri™ Sump Pump System can be part of the solution included in a comprehensive waterproofing system.

What Does a Basement Waterproofing System in My Home Include?
First off, you need to be able to intercept the water that is leaking inside. Our BasementGutter™ interior drainage system sits in the sub-floor around your basement’s perimeter, and it is specially designed to catch water from the walls and floor, or wall-floor joint.
This water needs somewhere else to go other than back onto your basement floor, so it is safely channeled to a sump pump system that will pump it out of the basement.
Because only an effective waterproofing system can keep a basement dry, you need a reliable, long-lasting sump pump. The JES family of SafeDri™ Sump Pumps provides options to meet whatever level of waterproofing protection your home requires. JES SafeDri™ Sump Pump Systems are available in several sizes and configurations, depending on if the application is for a basement, crawl space, foundation, or a more serious flooding issue that requires industrial strength support.
