Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Greenhaven, NY

Our vast experience and knowledge has enabled us to design the most efficient and effective redirection of water through the use of the proper size, type and depth of pipes and the proper size, type and placement of stone to obtain maximum drainage. As we progressed we gained other valuable knowledge that we have used to develop our state-of-the-art installation techniques and customer service practices that have produced over 500,000 installations in the past 60+ years.

A sump pump is an electric pump that is installed in the basement of a home and used to pump water out of the basement. Sometimes water is drained into the house’s drainage pipe system and sometimes it is pumped outside. Sump pumps generally work in combination with a sump pit, a hole usually dug in the basement to collect water for pumping outside.

Types of Sump Pumps

There are two types of sump pumps: a pedestal or upright style and a submersible style. The pedestal style sump pump sits above the sump pit. Because its electrical motor is exposed, it’s not safe for use if the basement tends to flood. The submersible sump pump actually goes down into the sump pit itself and is designed to operate when it is fully or partially submerged, and as a result, is much quieter, and is therefore recommended for finished basements. Submersibles are sealed to prevent electrical short circuits when water collects in the sump pit.

Testimonials

This was the second visit by Vulcan – the service technicians were very professional and did an amazing job – reviewed the project with me and explained what they were going to do and why they needed to do it – then they started right in and did the work. I would highly recommend this crew to anyone looking to get a water issue resolved in their basement.

Great service, very knowledgable staff and hard working crew! Install went well: 160 linear feet of underdrain pipe and crushed stone with 2 sump pits (one pit with 1 pump and the other upper pit with 2 pumps). Pumps run fine when needed. We now have a dry finished basement with peace of mind. Thanks Vulcan, great job!

Our basement flooded several times and had water level of up to 4 feet in one corner of the house. Vulcan assessed the situation and added french drains and new sump pump. They were very professional and not too costly. We haven’t had any issues since, this was in early 2000s.
