The SmartSump sump pump easily installs with the CleanSpace vapor barrier system.
The SmartSump™ crawl space drainage system is specially designed for crawl spaces. It has a lower profile than other pump packages, making installation in tight quarters easier.
At its heart, however, is the same high-quality 1/3hp Zoeller pump used in many of Basement Systems other pump packages.
The SmartSumps' unique, airtight two-piece lid allows for easy access to the pump as well as preventing any collected water from evaporating back into the crawl space.
In addition, any debris is prevented from falling into the sump pump pit and clogging the pump or switch.
Built into this lid is a recess for a water-sensitive alarm. The WaterWatch® alarm, a patented device from Basement Systems, will alert you if water is present on top of the sump pump’s lid.
This alarm can save the day from an indoor plumbing leak that normally would go undetected.
In crawlspaces slated for encapsulation, the lid integrates with the CleanSpace® vapor barrier for an airtight seal and no bunching of the liner.
This is important because in the event of an indoor plumbing leak, bunching deters water from reaching the drain and causes standing puddles in the crawl space.
Basement Systems’ airtight floor drain allows water to drain into the sump basin but while preventing damp air and soil gases from rising through the drain into the crawl space.
How? A specially designed cup and ball underneath the floor drain allows water to go down, but doesn’t allow air to come up.
The UltraSump battery backup can pump water out of the crawl space during a power outage.
For added protection, our UltraSump battery backup pump system can be installed along with the SmartSump. The UltraSump is a second pump that takes over should the primary pump fail or if there is a power outage. The UltraSump can pump more up to 12,000 gallons of water before it needs to be recharged.
The backup’s charging system is designed to keep the battery charged and ready for action despite long periods of disuse. An alarm (separate from the WaterWatch alarm) lets you know when the back-up pump is operating. This allows you to repair or replace the primary pump in a timely manner. If a power outage goes on for several days, homeowners may choose to replace the battery in order to keep their backup pump operating.
