One of the biggest problem I had this year regarding my home maintenance is keeping the drainage system working well.View months ago, started from small leakage, I got several damp at different part of my home, the most worse one is on my basement, where there is at least 1 inches dirty water flooded on the floor.
This issue become an annual event, since my home is located at the low altitude. whenever the rain falling little bit high, it will flooded to the lowest spot it can, and unfortunately it came directly to where my house is located. Thankfully, one of my friend suggest me to used sump pump in order to lift the water up and out. This is actually the most logical option to solve my low altitude location problem.
Again my friend recommend me to used Battery Sump Pump from B-Dry, B-Dry it self is a company specialized in waterproofing and sump pump installation with long years of experiences back to 1958, which is more than 50 years. There are several option that we can choose and determine to the condition we face and how much power that we actually need. So basically the more powerful the engine, more water can be lifted off. For example 1/2hp engine can lift 3000-7500 gallons of water per hours. You can ask B-Dry staff assistance order to determine your power needs.
For the power resources, we can pick from several different type, includes an automatic battery recharge, gasoline or propane generators. Each type have it own advantages, for example, using automatic battery recharge will help you a lot if your location sometimes loosing the electricity, since it can keep the power from AC resources and turns it into DC when the power is off. Propane engine can be set for automatic usage, means we can be anywhere such on vacation and the engine can start by himself, which is contrary to the gasoline engine that require manual start by ours.
