  • SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System
    SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System

    The SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the SafeDri™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, ourSafeDri™ battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!

    The ⅓ hp primary pump can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head, while the ½ hp secondary pump can discharge as much as 3,900 additional gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head. In the case of a tripped circuit, power outage, or sump failure, your SafeDri™ Battery Backup System will kick in. A second battery can be hooked up to a single system for an even longer running time. All told, this system provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.

The SafeDri™ can also be installed with an optional SafeDri™ Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!

    If you have had occasional water issues but not a severe flood, the SafeDri™ may be the ideal option for your home. This complete system provides total protection, and like all of our sump pump systems, works perfectly with our drainage systems.

  • SafeDri™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System

    If you’re looking for a crawl space sump pump solution, the SafeDri™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System is the ideal option. The SafeDri™ is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. The SafeDri™comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump with the option of adding a SafeDri™ Battery Backup Sump Pump.

  • SafeDri™ Battery Backup System

    Of course, in many cases water issues in the basement are caused by severe weather that can knock out power. With that in mind, we created the SafeDri™ Battery Backup System to ensure continued protection no matter what happens. In the event of loss of power the battery backup will automatically kick in and begin removing water from your basement, preventing a flood. The SafeDri™ system can pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery, which is enough water to fill a small swimming pool!

    The battery backup also comes with an alarm to alert you in case of power failure, sounding when the backup pump is running and silencing when power is restored. This alarm also protects you in case the main system is accidentally unplugged, which could otherwise leave your basement unprotected. The SafeDri™ can outlast generic backup pumps many times over, and an additional battery can be attached for further protection.

These key additional features will provide you with total peace of mind

Our sump pump systems include the following features:

  • SafeDri™ Battery Backup System: Sounds off to let you know if water has risen past the point where the pumps should have turned on.
  • SuperLiner Sump Liner: Large enough to keep your sump pump working properly without turning on and off repeatedly, but not so large that your liner goes too deep, making your sump pump wear out prematurely as it pumps out unnecessary water.
  • Airtight Sump Lid: An airtight lid keeps odors and humidity out, while protecting your sump from debris from the basement floor. Rubber grommets around all pipes and wires help maintain the airtight lid and also help to keep all PVC pipes steady and quiet.
  • CleanPump Stands: These sump pump stands are installed to raise the pumps off of the bottom of the liner. Any silt or sediment that settles on the bottom of your sump pit will be kept away from your pump. These stands also allow for height adjustment of the pump if necessary.
  • FreezeGuard® Discharge Line Protection: Many sump pump discharge lines are susceptible to freezing during the cold winter months. Our FreezeGuard® discharge line protector is the solution to this problem! This specifically designed grated adapter is located outside where the discharge line exits the house. If the pipe underground freezes in the winter, water can still be pumped out without the worry of backups into your basement!
    *Note: The FreezeGuard® does not come standard with our sump pump systems.

Sump pumps should always be installed with a perimeter drain system to ensure that all water is drained to the sump pit and removed from the basement.
