Your basement can flood at any time of the year, but winter can be particularly concerning. It’s important to ensure that your sump pump’s lines are not blocked so that it can effectively remove water. If these lines freeze, it can cause serious issues for your home.
Freezing discharge lines is a common problem that homeowners often encounter with their drainage systems. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to result in a ruined basement.
Indiana Foundation Service’s AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ is a winter-proof attachment that provides peace of mind, knowing your basement will remain dry. It is just one component of a complete basement waterproofing solution.
What is the AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™?
The AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ is an advanced attachment that connects to the exterior discharge line of your sump pump system just outside your home.
It acts as a secondary escape route for water, preventing backflow and basement flooding, and reducing the risk of sump pump burnout. When your discharge line gets blocked or frozen, water is redirected to the FreezeGuard™, where it is then released.
This innovation is part of Indiana Foundation Service’s comprehensive whole-home solution, which includes basement water management systems. A well-designed and properly installed waterproofing system works with the AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ to protect against water-related damage.
Signs You Need an Anti-Freeze Discharge Line
This special attachment is a helpful piece of equipment, especially if your basement faces the following issues during the winter months:
Regardless of its entry point, basement moisture poses a significant issue that causes damage. It affects your family’s health and your home’s structural integrity, requiring immediate attention. When you notice these problems in your basement, contact Indiana Foundation Service immediately for a free inspection and repair estimate.
Is an Anti-Freeze Exterior Sump Pump Discharge Line Attachment Necessary?
An antifreeze discharge line attachment like the AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ is essential for homes prone to frozen discharge lines.
Without it, you risk experiencing repetitive basement flooding every winter, leading to issues like mold, mildew, structural damage, and ruined possessions.
Why wait for a disaster to strike? Take a proactive approach and safeguard your home with the FreezeGuard™ attachment. It’s a small investment that saves you from expensive water damage in the future.
