While basements can flood at any time of year, a winter’s flood is especially sneaky as it can happen quietly, quickly causing damage to your home and belongings. When sump pump discharge lines freeze, the water will backflow into your home, resulting in flooding even if it’s not raining or snowing outside.
Once water has entered your basement via sump pump backflow, the result is a domino effect of problems including mold, efflorescence, musty smells, property, and structural damage. Your sump pump relies on clear, unblocked lines for efficient water removal. Frozen lines can present significant problems, especially in the mid-Atlantic region. Fortunately, JES Foundation Repair provides a solution with the AquaStop FreezeGuard™, an essential component of our comprehensive basement waterproofing solution.
What is the AquaStop FreezeGuard™?
JES Foundation Repair is proud to introduce the AquaStop FreezeGuard™, a cutting-edge attachment that connects to your sump pump system’s exterior discharge line, offering a secondary escape route for water and preventing backflow, basement flooding, and sump pump burnout. If the discharge line is blocked or frozen, the water is redirected to the FreezeGuard™, ensuring safety and prevention of flooding.
This innovative product is part of JES Foundation Repair’s extensive whole-home solution, incorporating advanced basement water management systems across the mid-Atlantic region. When combined with a properly installed waterproofing system, the AquaStop FreezeGuard™ provides complete protection against water-related damage.
