The perfect solution to clogged and frozen discharge lines in Pennsylvania and New York
A proper discharge line for a sump pump shouldn’t end just outside the foundation wall. If it does, discharge water will likely seep back into your basement or crawlspace before long, especially when temperatures drop below freezing.
Instead, a slightly sloped discharge pipe should run underground, a minimum of 10 feet, to daylight where possible (and to a drywell or drain field when not possible). Things sometimes go wrong, however, because drain lines are sometimes susceptible to freezing, especially when you live in Pennsylvania and New York.
This can occur at a snow- and ice-covered outlet or inside the pipe itself. If the discharge pipe is blocked, your pump will continue to run but the system won’t expel water. The result? A flooded basement.
Are you worried that your discharge line might freeze over when the temperatures drop? Klein Home Solutions can help prevent wintertime freeze-up of discharge lines.
We install the patented IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged.
Why not make sure that you have a dry basement all the time? We install a variety of patented sump pumps protected by the IceGuard® sump pump discharge line system.
