THE SPLIT BASIN DESIGN THAT GETS YOUR JOB DONE IN A SNAP

The newly developed InstaDry Sump Basin™ has been carefully redesigned with YOU in mind. The newest model allows for easy portability, improved installation time, and exceptional water flow.

The basin’s contemporary lightweight design will now allow you to take it in to the crawl space already assembled or in two separate pieces. The anti-float plate has now been made a part of the basin itself, and is no longer a separate piece that you have to put together. The bottom ribbed surface makes assembly fast and easy. It goes together with just a “snap”. The new basin now uses slots instead of predrilled holes for better water flow and water pressure. Whether you’re a contractor or DIYer, this basin is the product you’ve been looking for.

Unlike other sump basins on the market, the InstaDry Sump Basin™

is 14 gallons and measure 14″ deep x 16″ wide.

A GENEROUSLY SIZED BASIN

to increase the life of the pump it works with…

Unlike other sump basins on the market, the InstaDry Sump Basin™ is generously sized and measures 14″ deep x 16″ wide and will hold 14 gallons. The larger and deeper basins require digging deep into the soil and often digging in to the water table itself, which will allow the sump pump to run continuously, shortening its life. The depth of the InstaDry Sump Basin™ does not require an extremely deep hole, keeping the basin and pump above the water table.

The circumference of the pump basin is important to the overall function of the sump pump itself. The pumps are engineered to to run for a lengthened amount of time. The smaller mini basins and their limited water holding capacity often create a condition called “short cycling”. Short cycling is when the pump turns on then off within seconds. This condition is due to the pump evacuating smaller amounts of water that it was designed for.

A SUMP BASIN LID

that also allows for soil gas mitigation…

The basin lid has 3 separate openings. One opening is to seal around the electric cord of the sump pump. The second opening seals around a discharge pipe, and the third opening will accommodate a 3” pipe to help with soil gas mitigation and/or accepting external clean water from a dehumidifier or air conditioner.

There are many soil gasses that can be present in the crawl space such as Radon, Methane, and Acetone. Most soil gasses are relatively harmless, but there are a few that have been known to cause cancer and even death. It is recommended to test for soil gasses like Radon in every home. If testing reveals there is no soil gas threat, then the mitigation cap can be used to fill the soil gas mitigation hole.

A SOLID ANTI-FLOAT PLATE

The InstaDry Sump Basin™ is equipped with an “anti-float” plate that will keep the basin in place under high hydrostatic pressure, where other designs would be pushed out. Unlike many other anti-float plates, this one is made as part of the basin itself.

Many standard basement sump basins, used in a crawl space are pushed out of the ground on the first occurrence of high water pressure. The environment inside a crawl space presents a unique challenge for water control equipment. Unlike a basement, the crawl space sump basin does not have a layer of concrete to hold it in the ground under high water pressure conditions. Once the basin is pushed out it is rendered useless and will need to be moved to a new location.

4″ SLOTS FOR ADEQUATE WATER FLOW

In addition to the anti-float plate, the basin uses 4” slots to allow for a higher volume of water, under high water conditions, to be filtered. Making sure your sump basin has adequate filtration is key to the success of your sump pump.

Small holes are easily plugged by small pebbles or debris moving through the ground. Replacing the holes with slots will eliminate the chances of the basin getting clogged and wearing out your sump pump.
