    By Elizabeth C.

    I first met Complete Basement Systems at a home show( held in Rochester, every February), meeting one of its representatives at the time, Dan Malsch. He was an excellent salesperson for you, as well as being very conscientious with his follow-through. He formulated a drainage system for both my own duplex and for my daughter's house. Before, both buildings had serious issues with basement flooding. Since installation, there has not been a single drop of water seen! Both addresses are in the Kutzky Park neighborhood of Rochester. One September brought a very heavy rain that resulted in many (majority) of Kutzky Park homes to have basement flooding of some degree or other. We remained completely dry! That's a testimony of the effectiveness of your system, if ever there is one. In addition, CBS installed BrightWall on my basement walls That provides an attractive, easy-to-maintain "finish" to often drab-looking walls. I've been very pleased with the on-going service CBS has been providing to maintain the water-proofing system at optimal functionality. Many thanks.

    The service person was an experienced plumber who was very thorough. I did replace one of my pumps with his advice, but felt no pressure to do so. He even neatened up some piping he considered unsatisfactory without charge.

    Importance of Annual Maintenance on your sump pump system, Janesville MN

    Complete Basement Systems installs sump pump systems along with complete waterproofing systems for homeowners.  Our customer in Janesville, MN had a SumpSump Plus system installed in October 2016.  

    We have an annual maintenance program to inspect and maintain the sump pump systems installed to ensure we find any potential problems before they find the customer.  The system is an investment and we just want to protect that investment. 

    Post installation, your sump pump will run as needed and sometimes it may not run, but your sump pump motor sits in that dirty, mineral filled water potentially clogging breather holes and components inside to keep it from operating effectively.  

    The service is recommended every 12-15 months.

    Our customer Cassandra from Excelsior, MN had a Complete Basement System installed in January 2014 and had her first maintenance on her basement waterproofing and sump pump system completed in 2018.  

    Maintenance is important to prevent a floor in heavy rains.  Sump pumps are electro-mechanical devices that sit in dirty water all the time, and our service is important to make sure it’s ready when big rains come.

    TripleSafe Sump Pump in Maple Plain, MN

    Here's a home that our crew installed a new TripleSafe Sump Pump in. This is a heavy duty pump that has three pumps to give you complete protection. If your first pump fails, the second one takes over. If your first pump cannot keep up, then it will add a more powerful second pump run at the same time- more than double capacity. If your power goes out, an Ultrasump Battery back-up pump takes over. The best part about it is that it's all automatic!

    New Sump Pump System Installed in Lafayette, MN

    Our customer's sump pump system was not the best system to prevent water from findings its way into the basement in the event of a heavy rain.  The problem with water had happened about 5-6 times in 3 years since living there.  The homeowners knew it was inevitable that this would happen again and needed better equipment.  Along with updating their sump pump system we also completed a full interior waterproofing solution.  WaterGuard Drainage System was installed along with the SuperSump Pump System to protect our customers basement.
