Why We Advocate for An Outdoor Sump System

The genesis of our Outdoor Sump System started 12 years ago with a simple question:

Why allow water into your home just to pump it back out?

Since then, there have been various design updates and additions to optimize functionality and simplify installation. This is evident in our current design, which has been engineered to achieve up to a 13-foot, 9-inch depth.

The simple design may simply look like white pails that you can buy at a hardware store, but don’t let the minimalism fool you. This design has been engineered and tested for all types of soil conditions.

The parts are roto-molded to a consistent wall thickness of ¼” with external and internal flanges for fastening.  The pots are designed and constructed to maximize strength and minimize the number of joints for straightforward assembly. The interior’s diameter is optimized to perfectly accommodate our pumps (both primary & battery backup), plus a monitoring system and all of the add-ons that will ensure your pump runs successfully for years to come.

Outdoor Sump System Models

Our models are designed to stack sections (“pots”) on top of each other to achieve your desired height.

Below are the two options for ordering an outdoor sump system that suits your budget and needs.

Basic Outdoor Sump System Components allow you to assemble your own system. Start with the Base Model and add as many Extension Pots as you need to accomodate the depth of your sump hole. Then simply add a pump and fittings.

If you prefer a complete system that is ready to install, including pumps, fittings, float, and even waterproof rock, and no additional components required, then select one of our Complete Outdoor Sump Systems. The model numbers respresents the depth each system will reach, in inches. So, simply choose the model number that corresponds with the depth you need.

WE’RE HERE TO HELP

Q: I’d like to assemble my own system. How do I know the right combination of Base Model and Extensions for my needs?

A: First measure inside your basement from the basement floor to your grade outside and add on 36”    Eg. My measurement from the basement floor to outside grade is 60” + 36” = 96”, so you would need 1 Base Model and 2 Extension Pot packages.

NOTE: you will always need to start with the Base Model.

Q: I’d like to purchase a complete system. How do I know which model I need?

A: The model numbers are the height of the Outdoor Sump System in inches, to know your size in inches, measure inside your basement from the basement floor to your grade outside and add on 36” and round up to the closet model.     Eg. My measurement from the basement floor to outside grade is 76” + 36” = 112”, so you would need a Model OUT115.
