How AquaStop™ Sump Pumps Work 

Once a Baker’s Waterproofing expert establishes that AquaStop™ is the optimal fit for your basement, we proceed with a thorough installation procedure, as detailed below: 

  • Determine the lowest point of the basement  
  • Excavate the floor to accommodate the sump liner  
  • Excavate the perimeter for the interior drainage system  
  • Place interior drains in the trench  
  • Connect drains to the sump basin  
  • Place pumps and components in the sump liner  
  • Add interior sump pump discharge pipes  
  • Direct discharge pipes through the basement wall  
  • Install exterior discharge pipes, extensions, and anti-freeze discharge line attachment  
  • Run electrical hookup to control panel  
  • Attach battery backup if deemed necessary  
  • Test the pumping system  
  • Attach an airtight lid to the sump basin  
  • Pour cement to restore the concrete floor  

Here’s how the system continuously ensures a dry and secure basement: 

  • The internal drainage system captures leaking water. 
  • The water is led to the sump pump system. 
  • When water in the basin reaches a specified level, the pump is activated. 
  • Water is removed from the basement and redirected away from your home.
