What is the AFS AquaStop™ Sump Pump System? 

AFS AquaStop™ Basement Sump Pump System is a specialized mechanism located at the deepest part of your basement. It is engineered to gather water from the interior perimeter drainage system and redirect it away from your home’s foundation. 

This system is fundamental to basement waterproofing, defending against basement water accumulation and infrastructural damage. Beyond that, it is a component of a broader whole-home solution designed to maintain a secure and healthy living environment. 

AFS AquaStop™ Sump Pumps come with features like a water alarm, sump liner, secure sump lid, and durable cast iron pumps to guarantee reliability and efficiency. Regular maintenance ensures the longevity of your AFS AquaStop™ sump pump, keeping your basement moisture-free for years.

Recognizing these signs is crucial for safeguarding your home against water damage and related complications. 

Is a Sump Pump Necessary? 

Yes, a sump pump is extremely valuable in your basement; it serves as the core component of any basement waterproofing system. Without a sump pump, moisture will accumulate, resulting in mold, mildew, and structural impairments. 

Prompt action can spare you the trouble of addressing major issues later. Moreover, AFS AquaStop™ Sump Pumps can be smoothly incorporated into a broader home solution, focusing on the wellbeing and safety of your living space.

How AFS AquaStop™ Sump Pumps Work 

The sump pump is just one part of our basement waterproofing system. It works best alongside other tools. After an AFS expert evaluates your basement, the installation process involves: 

  • Locating the basement’s lowest point 
  • Digging the floor to fit the sump liner 
  • Excavating the perimeter for the interior drainage system 
  • Installing interior drains in the trench 
  • Connecting drains to the sump basin 
  • Arranging pumps and components in the sump liner 
  • Installing interior sump pump discharge pipes 
  • Leading discharge pipes through the basement wall 
  • Setting up exterior discharge pipes, extensions, and freeze-resistant discharge line attachment 
  • Connecting electrical hookup to control panel 
  • Incorporating battery backup if needed 
  • Testing the pumping system 
  • Sealing the sump basin with an airtight lid 
  • Restoring the concrete floor with cement 

Here’s how the system maintains your basement’s safety and dryness: 

  • The interior drainage system gathers leaking water. 
  • Water is channeled to the sump pump system. 
  • The basin activates the pumping system once the water reaches a certain level. 
  • Water is pumped out and directed away from your residence. 

AFS ensures top-notch installation services to secure the efficacy of your sump pump and all-encompassing basement waterproofing system.
