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

    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.

  • Sump Pump Service in Nowthen, MN

    After

    Complete Basement Systems has a fully staffed service department to inspect and maintain the sump pump and waterproofing systems installed.  

    It is a recommended service every 12-15 months.  We inspect to find problems that could cause a flood before they find the customer.  We clean out the sump pump liner and free it of silt and mud.  

    Our customer in Nowthen, MN recently had their first service after installation in July 2016.  A service was performed to clean the SuperSump pump liner.  

  • Basement Leak Fixed In Cottonwood, MN
    Before
    Basement Leak Fixed In Cottonwood, MN
    After

    Meeting Ashley & Tony of Cottonwood at the Marshall area home show, they had a plan to finish their basement but could'nt due to a foundation wall crack that would cause water to leak into their basement.  

    Our System Design Specialist, Nick Barke met with the couple to show them a solution that would solve their problem with a crack behind their finished wall.   Poured walls are common to develop hairline cracks due to soil pressure against the foundation wall, causing further cracking and water to find an opening into the basement. 

    Our FlexiSpan product was the perfect solution for them installed by Nate Barke and David Briese.  The couple now can have peace of mind to finish the space now having it corrected with a solid solution.
