Having a reliable sump pump in your crawl space is of the utmost importance. After all, a crawl space isn’t usually an area you frequently visit. So, it is essential to choose the right unit to ensure your crawl space stays dry.
What is a sump pump? A sump pump removes water from your crawl space. As water enters the sump pit, it fills to a level that triggers the float switch and the water is automatically pumped out. Keeping the area dry and healthy.
AquaStop™ Single Crawl Space Sump Pump
This custom-engineered sump pump is specially designed for crawl spaces. Featuring a 1/3 HP Cast-Iron pump, a specially designed liner for crawl spaces, an alarm to alert you to any issues, and an optional battery backup sump pump—it’s the ideal solution to keeping your crawl space dry.
The AquaStop Crawl Space Single is designed with a special lid that allows for seamless installation of the CrawlSeal™ liner, providing an airtight seal. The lid also features an alarm. In the event of a plumbing leak, water will pass by the alarm, alerting you to the issue, before draining the water out of the crawl space. This added layer of protection ensures your crawl space stays dry from both groundwater and plumbing issues.
Battery Back-Up Sump Pump System
For added protection, the AquaStop Crawl Space Single also has the optional AquaStop battery backup system. This second pump kicks on automatically in the event of a power outage or if the primary pump fails for any reason. This backup pump can remove more than 11,000 gallons of water on a single charge.
The Crawl Space Encapsulation System
As important as a crawl space sump pump is, it is only a factor in having a healthy crawl space. Ensuring vents and doors are sealed as well as insulation and sealing walls are all part of the encapsulation process. If floods are common in your crawl space you may want to consider a crawl space drain or drainage matting as well.
