Never have water in your basement again due to a failed sump pump or a power outage. Water powered sump pumps do not require any electricity to operate.
In this episode, we address backup sump pumps, in particular water-powered sump pumps. We were contacted by a listener via twitter and asked if we had recommendations for a backup pump. We knew of a few brands and types but our question was specifically about water powered pumps. After a little bit of research, we found Base Products Corporation makes just such a system called the Basepump. They were gracious enough to send a pump to our listener so we could interview him about the install and the product. Thanks. The pump mark that was sent can be purchased through Amazon by following this link Basepump
In this show, we discuss how the pump operates, how it’s installed, how to choose a pump, and most importantly why you would want to install something like this if you are finishing a basement. Listen to the podcast for all the details.
If you are considering finishing your basement, water control is one of the most critical things to think about. Check out our other shows related to finishing your basement by clicking on the Basement Series button.
