Frozen sump pump discharge lines outside your home can lead to water re-entry and an increased risk of basement flooding. This in turn can trigger mold and mildew growth, musty odors, poor air quality, damage to stored items, and structural issues.

The AquaStop™ FreezeGuard™ attachment from Groundworks is designed to prevent this issue. It connects to your sump pump’s exterior discharge line and prevents water backflow and flooding. Read on to learn more about this effective basement waterproofing solution!

What Is AquaStop FreezeGuard™?

Our AquaStop FreezeGuard™ connects to the exterior discharge line of your sump pump system, offering an extra method for removing water from your basement. In case your exterior discharge line gets blocked or frozen, FreezeGuard™ activates, providing a secondary defense against water intrusion in your basement. This also helps to prevent your sump pump from overworking.

FreezeGuard™ is one of the basement waterproofing solutions offered by Groundworks, helping to maintain a dry and safe living environment.

When Do You Need the FreezeGuard™ Attachment?

It might be time to install FreezeGuard™ if you observe any of the following issues in your basement:

A dirty and moldy basement corner.
  • Flooding or water accumulation
  • Ice formation around your foundation or discharge area 
  • Audible strain or noise from your sump pump

Ignoring moisture-related problems in your basement can jeopardize your home’s foundation and your family’s health. If you notice any of the above-mentioned signs, don’t hesitate to contact Groundworks, the leading foundation repair and basement waterproofing company in North America.
