How Drainage Systems Work

Not all sump pump systems are created equal! With hundreds of sump pumps available, we stand by the quality and reliability of SafeDri™ Sump Pumps.

The SafeDri™ Sump pump has come a long way in recent years and they are better and more reliable than ever. However, old habits die hard, and there are still many old and outdated sump pump designs on the marketplace.

Plastic sump pumps can easily overheat, and even a simple design choice, such as a screen on the pump intake, can mean the difference between a clogged system and one that you can count on for years to come.

Finding a model that “has it all” (including power, reliability, and resistance to clogging) can be easier said than done!

At Indiana Foundation Service, we’re proud to provide the highest-quality cast-iron SafeDri™ sump pumps to our customers.

We offer free SafeDri™ sump pump estimates in the Indiana area, including Indianapolis, Bloomington and nearby.

Why We Stand By SafeDri™ Sump Pump

Why do we stand by SafeDri­™? Because we have carefully examined and tested sump pump models of all types. Our research, combined with thousands of sump pump installations, have all pointed to one fact: SafeDri™ provides the best pumps on the market.

Indiana Foundation Service has been using SafeDri™ pumps all over Indiana, and they’ve proven their value time and again. At Indiana Foundation Service, we also believe SafeDri™ Sump Pumps are the best way to keep your basement dry all the time for the following reasons:

SafeDri™ Sump Pump: Powerful Pumping Ability

At Indiana Foundation Service, we install the powerful SafeDri™ 330 and 500 models. Combined with our battery backup system, these pumps make for a powerhouse sump pump system that is up to the job of keeping your basement dry. Other models are available for unique circumstances.

SafeDri™ Pump Features:

  • The SafeDri™ 330 pumps up to 3,200 gallons per hour at a 10′ head.
  • The SafeDri™ 500 pumps up to 3,840 gallons per hour at a 10′ head.

(“Head” is how high the pump must send the water before it exits the home. A lower “head” means more gallons per hour, while a higher “head” will slightly reduce the gph.)

SafeDri™ Sump Pump: Heat-Dispersing, Engineered Build

Cast Iron SafeDri Sump Pump

Our primary and secondary sump pump systems are designed with cast-iron SafeDri™ Sump Pumps. Unlike plastic sump pumps that often over heat and fail, cast-iron pumps transfer heat from the engine casing to the water outside. This naturally cools the sump pump motor during operation.

Our pumps are designed with the cast iron around the center of the pump, instead of only at the base. This, combined with the distinctive single-casing design, allows for a maximum in heat dispersion and pump life.

SafeDri™ Pump Features:

  • Single engine casing design for maximum heat transfer
  • Cast-iron core design for cooler operation

SafeDri™ Sump Pump: Reliable Float Switch

One of the most common weaknesses of sump pump systems is the float switch that turns on when the water rises. If this switch jams in an “off” or “on” position, it can lead to sump failure or sump pump burnout. The SafeDri™ sump pump switch includes several design elements that help prevent jamming.

SafeDri Enhanced Float Controller

SafeDri™ Pump Features:

  • Locked-in sump pump arm that is not “free-floating”
  • Solid, non-hollow plastic design prevents floating switch from filling with water.
  • Mounted sump pump design keeps pump from “wandering” due to vibration and jamming the sump switch against the edge of the sump liner.

SafeDri™ Sump Pump: Clog-Resistant Pump Intake

Sump pump systems will occasionally gather dirt, debris, and other materials within the sump pump liner. Over time, sump pumps with screened intake valves will clog. Some unscreened models will clog with dirt and debris, shutting the system down and leading to a flood. SafeDri™ provides sump pump systems that address both these critical issues.

SafeDri™ Pump Features:

  • No-screen design helps prevent system clogging on inlet to pump
  • The powerful SafeDri™ impeller can handle half inch solids with ease
  • Installed in sump pit on a stand that keeps it away from silt and sediment settling on bottom of liner.
