Brant P. bought his home in Columbia, SC about five years ago and one of the major selling points for him was the basement that this home had. He loved that he would have an additional storage area for his growing family. During the floods of 2015 in Columbia, SC his basement was flooded. Since then the pump that was supposed to be helping keep water out of the basement has stopped working. Therefore, Brant was not able to use his basement for storage because of the excess water. He finally decided he needed a solution to be able to use his basement again. Brant searched the web to find someone that installed basement pumps. He came across Cantey Foundation Specialists and called in to schedule an inspection. System Design Specialist Jason Hugg did his inspection and told Brant that Cantey had a patented SmartPump that would meet his needs. This pump would be installed in replace of his current pump and remove water from collecting in the basement. Production Team Leader Aubrey McJunkin, Production Team Member Francisco Lopez, and Production Team Member Oscar Mota came out and effectively installed the SmartPump. Brant is now utilizing his basement for the storage he needed.
Lamar S. has been an administrator at his church in Columbia, SC for a long time. When he retired he wanted to use his time to help others and found that opportunity with the church. Since being there he has helped the church grow with different events as well as finding new space for the growing congregation. About 10 years ago, he was able to get a gymnasium built for the church for the after-school program and youth group to use. It was a wonderful addition that has been used continuously since its completion. Recently, however, water has been making its way in, causing the floors to become a safety hazard. Lamar knew he had to take action to keep church members safe. He did some research on the Internet to see what companies he could trust to find the right solution. Cantey Foundation Specialists came up and Lamar called in to schedule an appointment. System Design Specialist Jason Hugg arrived as scheduled and did a thorough inspection. He found that the gymnasium needed Cantey's SmartSump to pump out the water that was finding its way in, to an outside drain. Lamar agreed that this solution felt like the best course of action and scheduled an installation date. Production Team Leader Aubrey McJunkin, Production Team Member Oscar Mota, and Production Team Member Francisco Lopez came out and successfully installed the SmartSump. Lamar and his fellow church members are now free from the hazard that was preventing them from enjoying fun and fellowship.
Ann Marie R. of Columbia, SC has lived in her home with her husband for most of her adult life. Her home has her heart and is the place she plans on staying for the rest of her days. When Ann Marie's husband passed away she had a hard time finding companies to help her make various fixes around her home. Her children no longer live close so she is essentially all on her own in finding a company she can trust to help her. When her basement started to have excess water she knew that the sump pump she had in place was not working properly. Not knowing where to turn, she started asking around to see if anyone had any recommendations. A lady at the grocery store told her about the great work Cantey Foundation Specialists had done on her home. Ann Marie called in and scheduled an appointment with System Design Specialist Jason Hugg. Jason arrived for the scheduled inspection and noticed that Ann Marie did need an upgrade on her sump pump to remove all the excess water in her basement. Jason told Ann Marie that the sump pump she needed was Cantey's SmartSump that could remove the water from her basement accordingly. Not only would it get rid of the water causing issues but it would also come with plumbing leak protection because of its pump alarm warning of any leaks. Ann Marie was impressed with Jason and how knowledgeable he was. She felt comfortable having Cantey help her and trusted that they would get the job done right. Production Team Leader Diego Sanchez, Production Team Member Jesus Gonzalez, Production Team Member Zenen Dominguez, and Production Team Member Matthew Kelley came out and successfully installed the SmartSump in Ann Marie's basement. Ann Marie now has the peace of mind that her basement is protected and that she has found a company she can trust.
Jeff and Linda W. just moved into their Chapin, SC home a year ago. They had previously lived up North but decided to relocate to South Carolina after they retired. They chose just the right home in a quiet neighborhood that even included a basement. They decided to use the basement as a storage area. When they moved in, they put some things in the basement like holiday decorations that they did not need at the moment. A few months later when Linda went into the basement, she found that water had ruined some of their things. They had no idea that this was a problem but knew they needed to find a solution. Since they did not know the area very well or what company they could call, Jeff did a search online. He found Cantey Foundation Specialists and gave them a call to set up a free inspection. System Design Specialist Jason Hardage arrived for the scheduled appointment and did his inspection in the basement. Jason determined that Jeff and Linda needed Cantey's SmartSump system and a French drain installed to rid their basement of water. Jason explained that the SmartSump would be installed by removing a section of the floor in the basement. It would then sit below the surface and collect the water in the basement with the assistance of the French drain. As the water runs into the SmartSump, it is pumped to the outside. Jeff and Linda felt confident in the solution Cantey had provided them and scheduled an installation date. Production Team Leader Jonathan Lowder, Production Team Member David Herbert, and Production Team Member Matthew Kelley came out and successfully installed the SmartSump system. Jeff and Linda no longer have to worry about their storage area being filled with water thanks to Cantey's lasting solution.
Keith S. is a homeowner who really knows his way around a home. From renovating and repairing, to complete restructure Keith can do it all. However, Keith lacks the knowledge he needed to solve his homes water absorption problem. His basement walls have been soaking up moisture from the ground and bringing it into his home. After hearing an advertisement on the radio for Cantey Foundation Specialists he decided to give us a call. Specialist John Adams came out to Keith's home for a free inspection and found that the solution he was looking for was a Sump Pump. Sump Pumps are designed to pump out excess moisture and liquid that could be damaging to your home. Team Leader Aubrey, Team Member Oscar, and Team Member Frank were sent out to Keith's home and installed the Sump Pump for him. Keith was so happy that Cantey was able to help him when he was unable to do it himself. "This isn't the first time I've hired Cantey, I had them fix my retainer wall with wall anchors before. They're a company that I've come to trust to get the job done right."
The TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
The ⅓ hp primary pump can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head, while the ½ hp secondary pump can discharge as much as 3,900 additional gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head. In the case of a tripped circuit, power outage, or sump failure, your TripleSafe™'s UltraSump® Battery Backup System will kick in. A second battery can be hooked up to a single system for an even longer running time. All told, this system provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.
For an effective and more economical solution, consider our SuperSump® Premier Pump System. It is engineered to help keep the basement dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement. The SuperSump® can also be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
If you have had occasional water issues but not a severe flood, the SuperSump® may be the ideal option for your home. This complete system provides total protection, and like all of our sump pump systems, works perfectly with our drainage systems.
If you're looking for a crawl space sump pump installation, the SmartSump™ Crawl Space Sump Pump System is the ideal option. The SmartSump™ is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. The SmartSump™ comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller® primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump. This sump pump is designed to fit with the CleanSpace® liner and has a sump alarm to ensure you are always aware of any water in your crawl space.
The SmartSump™ system comes with a reliable Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower sump pump capable of pumping 2,500 gallons per hour at a 5-foot head. This system is designed to fit with our crawl space encapsulation system, ensuring that you have a completely dry, clean crawl space.
Of course, in many cases water issues in the basement are caused by severe weather that can knock out power. With that in mind, we created the UltraSump® Battery Backup System to ensure continued protection no matter what happens. In the event of loss of power the battery backup will automatically kick in and begin removing water from your basement, preventing a flood. The UltraSump® system can pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery, which is enough water to fill a small swimming pool!
The battery backup also comes with an alarm to alert you in case of power failure, sounding when the backup pump is running and silencing when power is restored. This alarm also protects you in case the main system is accidently unplugged, which could otherwise leave your basement unprotected. The UltraSump® can outlast generic backup pumps many times over, and an additional battery can be attached for further protection.
