How AquaStop™ Sump Pumps Work 

Once an IBA expert has reviewed your basement and suggested the appropriate AquaStop™ sump pump system, our comprehensive installation process ensures every step is meticulously covered, from excavation to system testing. 

Below are the steps your installation team may follow:  

  • Determine the lowest point of the basement  
  • Excavate the floor to accommodate the sump liner  
  • Excavate the perimeter for the interior drainage system  
  • Place interior drains in the trench  
  • Connect drains to the sump basin  
  • Place pumps and components in the sump liner  
  • Add interior sump pump discharge pipes  
  • Direct discharge pipes through the basement wall  
  • Install exterior discharge pipes, extensions, and anti-freeze discharge line attachment  
  • Run electrical hookup to control panel  
  • Attach battery backup if deemed necessary  
  • Test the pumping system  
  • Attach an airtight lid to the sump basin

Here’s how this system works to keep your basement safe and dry:
