Coupled with our patented sump pump solutions, we provide the best basement waterproofing services anywhere — at any price.

Waterproofing System

A basement waterproofing system keeps water from entering your basement. A waterproofing system can only be effective if it includes both drainage and sealers. There are three components of complete basement waterproofing systems: interior sealants, interior water drainage, and exterior waterproofing.

Waterproofing Products

At Basement Technologies, we design and manufacture our basement waterproofing products to be the best in the industry. Whether you are in need of a new sump pump, backup sump pump or dehumidifier we have the right basement waterproofing product to keep your basement safe and dry – guaranteed.

Sump Pump

Basement sump pumps get rid of water that has built up in the basement. The water may get in through the perimeter drains of a basement waterproofing system. If the basement is below the water table level, rain or natural ground water may seep in. However, with one of our basement sump pumps in place you won’t have anything to worry about!

Our dedicated research and development team has created innovative basement waterproofing solutions such as the Water Grabber® Bull Dog™, Water Trek Aqua Route®, Techni-Crack®, Floor Grate, and The Alternator® to keep your basement dry as efficiently as possible. No matter what the basement water proofing problem, from basement leaks, to sump pump services, and flooding repair, Basement Technologies of Central Virgnia has the water proofing solution.

A sub floor basement waterproofing system linked to a sump pump is considered by industry experts to be the most reliable and cost-effective solution to basement water problems – but the consequences of a power outage or a mechanical failure at the pump could be catastrophic. With expert design and the best pump and backup products in the marketplace, we’ll make sure that you’re ready for any situation. Our Water Trek Aqua Route® drain tile with our Water Grabber Bull Dog® sump basket is the ideal combination for your home.

The battery operated backup sump pump is designed to back up primary residential sump pumps in case of pump or power failure. This is a must for those installations where an inoperative sump pump cannot be tolerated. The separate float switch and built-in alarm automatically start the back-up system and activate the warning buzzer to protect against high water damage and warn you of primary pump failure. Basement Technologies has all the sump pump system solutions you need to deal with your wet basement problems!

Basement Technologies has and continues to install our patented Water Trek Aqua Route® system in thousands of homes throughout North America.


A revolutionary basement waterproofing solution!

Basement Technologies is proud to introduce our revolutionary new Water Grabber® – the “Bull Dog™”! Our unique patent pending sump pump system represents an innovative alternative in the basement waterproofing industry. Basement Technologies’ research and development department continues to “think outside the box” or in this case “Inside the Box” and as a result…the new Water Grabber® “Bull Dog™”!

Most of you are familiar with the old circular design that other waterproofing companies are content to use. Once again, Basement Technologies has proven that to be a leader in the business, one must continually improve old products and introduce more efficient new ones.

The circular pump liner that other waterproofing companies continue to use is simply not aesthetically pleasing and effective…Our answer to this out-of-style look and function is the “Bull Dog™”.

Your basement was built level, plumb and square – not circular. Historically, a sump pump is located on a straight wall or in a corner. Doesn’t it make sense to install a sump pump that fits snugly and attractively in your basement and emulates the building product look? – not a sump pump look!

The most effective waterproofing systems are installed on the inside of the home. When the interior drainage systems are installed, they need a central ejection device-a way to get the water to the outside of the home. Our patent pending Water Grabber® Bull Dog™ is the heart and lungs of our Water Trek Aqua Route® perimeter system. The Water Grabber Bull Dog consists of a patent pending drilled polyethylene basin with a split lid. We use 3/4″ gravel to surround the basin to help filter the water.

We install our alarm, The Grabber Pal II, in the basin to alert you if the pump has a mechanical problem or was unplugged accidentally, which can cause a flood. This alarm is float activated and far superior to sensor type alarms which other companies carry. We use a special rubber fitting called “The Silencer” over or under the lid dependent on a side discharge or top discharge to hush the already quiet pump


Never lose sump pump coverage again!

A sub floor basement waterproofing system linked to a sump pump is considered by industry experts to be the most reliable and cost effective solution to basement water problems.

Consider the consequences of a power outage and a mechanical failure at the pump, it is highly recommended that homeowners install backups to confront any emergency situation.

The Basement Technologies battery operated backup sump pump is designed to back up primary residential sump pumps in case of pump or power failure. A must for those installations where an inoperative sump pump can not be tolerated. Separate float switch and built-in alarm automatically starts back-up system and activates warning buzzer to protect against high water damage and warn of primary pump failure.

  • Sounds warning alarm when back-up pump is activated, with alarm light.
  • Maintains constant battery charge.
  • Separate pump test and reset button
