Basement Sump Pumps.
The water is pumped out from below the surface. When the ground is saturated, water can not drain any other way except into the basement. “Lock-Tight” seal coating may help, but it has to be done thoroughly (walls and floors) and still there is no guarantee.
The sump-pump system requires a corner where the floor is dug down and the unit is installed. Then, piping to a good drain and an electrical circuit. These systems operate automatically.

That's why we are "The Able Group"
Basement flooding is most often caused by water build up in the soil that makes its way into your basement. There are many ways for water to enter and many ways to prevent it from entering. A sump pump on the other hand is a last defense against flooding because it pumps out water from the lowest section of the basement
before the water level reaches the basement floor level. As groundwater level rises it is diverted into the sump hole. When the water reaches what is called ‘the critical level’, the sump pump begins to pump it out through a pipe that leads outside and away from your foundation.
The two basic sump pump models are the up-right (commonly called a pedestal) and the submersible. Either will work well with proper maintenance. The pedestal pump has the motor on top of the pedestal and the pump at the base, which sits on the bottom of the sump. The motor is not meant to get wet.
The pump is turned on and off by a ball float. One advantage of this type of pump is that the on/off switch is visible so the action of the ball float can be easily seen. Submersible pumps are designed to be submerged in water and sit on the bottom of the sump. The on/off switch is attached to the pump and can be either a ball float connected
to an internal pressure switch or a sealed, adjustable, mercury-activated floating switch. Both are reliable but the floating switch requires a larger diameter sump. If the sump diameter is less than 18 inches, the floating switch or its cord could become entangled with the piping or pinned between the pump and sump. Either type of pump should
have a check valve on the water outlet pipe so water doesn't flow back in the sump when the pump shuts off. Water flowing back and forth can cause the pump to turn on and off more frequently than necessary and decrease the life of the pump.
