    I have already been bragging about the work that was done and the crew that was here. They impressed my dad, which is usually hard to do!

    Customer Testimonial

              I would totally recommend this company for any foundation work. My foundation was extremely neglected. The walls were bending/the next stage would be to start to fall in. THICK black mold formed in the corners. A "beaver" system on all 4 walls to a sump with a sump pump that would run every 30-45 minutes on non-rainy days!!!!! The De-humidifier would run 24-7. Even in the winter!!!! I called around and no one offered the warranted system as American Waterworks. And they were the only ones that KNEW the soil engineering involved in why the foundation was failing! A few places offered a "Band-aid" that would have failed eventually. They put in a WAY better sump and dual pump system with battery back up. Peace of mind!!!! Their "beaver"/drainage system is flush with the basement floor so you can't see it! The plates and beams they put in straightened one wall right away. The rest will take a little bit by tightening the plates little by little. The water proof wall barriers they put in look awesome. No mold. No bad smell. The dehumidifier actually turns "OFF". Much drier!!! Looks GREAT. All this done in one week!' it's like a new basement! The workers they have are awesome and answered every question I had. I couldn't recommend American Waterworks enough. They are GREAT. Oh....did I mention the transferable guarantee? A great company that made sure I was happy with all the work they were doing! And i couldn't be more happy. WORTH THE MONEY!!!! I'd hire them in a second if I needed to!!!!

    TripleSafe Sump Pumps Installed in Thornton, IA

    Ken S. in Thorton, IA contacted American Waterworks after seeing one of our ads in the local newspaper. His home already had two sump pumps, but water was still seeping into the basement, and he was looking for more options. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Ryan Powell, to meet with Ken and evaluate the situation. Ryan recommended our TripleSafe sump pump and Ken approved. 

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew were able to swap out the sump pumps and also installed our SaniDry XP dehumidifier to take care of any humidity in the basement. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe has a Zoeller ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, Zoeller ½ hp pump will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery. Ken was impressed with the quick installation and is confident in his new TripleSafe sump pump!
