The importance of installing a sump pump system in a basement
August 17, 2016
When designing a basement waterproofing system it is important to consider the drainage and how any water ingress will be removed effectively.
ULTRA Membrane Systems offer a range of sump pump options which should be installed as part of a maintainable drainage system. A Type C cavity drainage system typically consists of cavity membrane which covers the walls and floors, along with a perimeter drainage channel leading to a sump pump chamber. Quite often more than one sump pump system is required and consideration should be given to the addition of a battery back up system in the event of pump failure or a power cut.
