AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™

Basements are susceptible to flooding year-round, and the winter months bring their own set of risks. To avoid flooding, the sump pump in your home needs an unobstructed discharge line. A frozen line can lead to serious problems in your home. 

This is a frequent concern for homeowners in areas prone to freezing temperatures like ours, but Innovative Basement Authority’s AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ ensures your basement remains dry by acting as a crucial component of our extensive basement waterproofing solution. 

Keep reading to understand the benefits of AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ and discover why it’s needed to keep your basement dry during the harsh winter season. 

What is the AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™? 

Innovative Basement Authority’s AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ is a groundbreaking attachment that connects to your sump pump system’s exterior discharge line, providing an alternative route for water if the line freezes. This prevents backflow and potential flooding in the basement, thereby diminishing the likelihood of sump pump malfunction.  

When freezing or obstruction occurs, water is efficiently redirected to the FreezeGuard™ before being released. 

This advanced technology is a part of our whole home waterproofing line that fits seamlessly with our other home waterproofing options.
