Basement Waterproofing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware

Basements Flooding From Plumbing Failures in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware

When your home experiences a plumbing failure, it can damage carpet, drywall, appliances, and stored personal possessions.

A plumbing failure is more likely to be covered by an insurance company than groundwater flooding damage.

The most common claim that insurance companies pay out on homeowner's policies are related to water-damaged homes. While groundwater flooding is a major part of this, plumbing failure is also a highly significant factor.

This kind of damage can be extensive in walls, floors, and with everything stored within the flooded area. The mold that follows a flood can create allergens that can lead to serious long-term health effects.

Preventing Flooding From Plumbing Failures

Unfortunately, it's not possible to prevent all pipes, toilets, sinks, tubs, faucets, and other pieces of home plumbing from ever experiencing a leak.

However, there are some simple, common-sense steps that can be taken to prevent some of the most common plumbing failures that occur.

At Basement Systems we suggest installing two simple, effective solutions for the most avoidable basement flooding causes. These simple add-ons are easy ways to ensure that you have the best plumbing failure protection available.

If you have old, corroded washer hoses, you should turn off the water to your machine when it's not in use.

Otherwise, you're putting enormous pressure on your hoses -- much more than they were designed to withstand.

Failing Washing Machine Hoses

Washer hoses sustain 50psi of water when in use. If you don't turn that water on and off every time you do your laundry, there could be a serious problem. Old-fashioned rubber washer hoses are not meant to withstand that constant pressure!

When these hoses burst open from the pressure, you can expect up to 500 gallons of water to pour into your basement each hour. In fact, we've seen water levels so high from this that it's literally pouring out of the basement windows!

If you have rubber washer hoses, we suggest you upgrade them now -- before they fail. It's a very small investment that makes a huge difference.

Alarm Systems For Sump Pumps

Sump pump systems can flood for many reasons, including clogged drains, frozen discharge lines, and pump burnout. Whether your sump pump has an issue or your home has a plumbing failure, you're going to want to know as soon as possible.

To help keep you informed of any potential floods, each of our systems has a built-in WaterWatch® Sump Pump Alarm included in its installation. This will sound off when a flood occurs, letting you know right away. Our newest systems also include the option of being tied into many home alarm systems for ultra protection -- so you receive a phone call when the alarm sounds off.

Our sump pumps also include a floor drain with a unique ball-and-cup design. When water from the floor enters the drain, the ball floats, and the water flows through. When the water is gone, the ball returns to the bottom of the drain, sealing the opening from humidity and odors that would otherwise rise from the sump pump pit.
