Why did the customer contact us?
The customer wanted to get a sump pump and a french drain installed.
Water entering front basement wall.
Install GrateDrain system along with front and left side wall, as facing from the inside basement with flex flange up approximately 12” from the floor on 2 walls. Install flush port in the floor. Cover with high strength concrete.
Install GrateSump with 1/3rd hp pump and high water alarm in the floor left front corner of the room. Run discharge line up and inside where the wall is now, turn and discharge through brick outside of a home near the sidewalk. 20 LF approx. The discharge will end at drain box with washed stone flush with soil level.
Customer understands the sump liner will not be 100% hidden below the floor as an electrical cord will need to pass out of the floor to an outlet. Customer will provide a dedicated outlet.
The homeowner will be responsible for removing up to 24” of drywall and studs/sill plate. Also, an additional blowout panel or two will be needed where the discharge line runs up inside the wall and out of the home.
Includes lifetime, fully transferable warranty on GrateDrain system, 3-year warranty on GrateSump.
