Advantages of IceGuard® System
Sump pump discharge lines can freeze, especially in the northern regions. Pipe terminations can become covered with snow and ice in the winter. This can spell disaster for your basement if the sump pump water cannot exit the line outside. You'll have peace of mind with the patented IceGuard® sump pump discharge line system from Basement Systems.
This sump pump discharge line was covered by snow and ice, but with IceGuard installed, water was allowed to escape, preventing a flooded basement.
The IceGuard system allows water to escape from a sump pump discharge line if the pipe freezes or becomes blocked for any reason. Even if the pipe outlet is buried under a foot of ice and snow, the water can escape, allowing your sump pump to keep your basement dry. When the discharge pipe thaws, the water will automatically run along its normal route, and no water will escape from the sump pump ice guard. There are no valves to turn, hoses to attach, or anything for the homeowner to do at all - it's totally automatic!
The patented design of the IceGuard automatically allows water to escape through its perforations. This unique feature of our sump pump ice guard provides an exit when pipe terminations are blocked, usually by ice or snow. A sump pump check valve prevents the water that's in the discharge line from entering the sump pump basin after the pump has been turned off.
The IceGuard anti-freeze device is just one of the many basement waterproofing and sump pump solutions offered by Basement Systems. IceGuard can be added on to any of our sump pump systems, including the popular TripleSafe sump pump.
