    It is really stressful when your home has been damaged by water intrusion. American Waterworks was so responsive and caring about our situation. They arrived on time and made sure we were comfortable with the people coming into our home. I always felt like I had control over what was happening and they educated me throughout the whole process. Josh, Jeromy, Jeremiah, and Noah were an excellent team to work with. I highly recommend them and their services for their expertise and for the peace of mind they provide.

    Customer Testimonial

              I want to commend the team that worked with us. Josh, the consultant, who came out to give us an estimate was great. He answered all of our questions and was very knowledgeable. He was also very prompt in returning emails and messages. The team that came out to our house to place the system was awesome as well! Jose, the Foreman, and the two other gentlemen, Eddie and Luis, were on time and very professional. They answered all of our questions and updated me along the way on everything they were doing. They went above and beyond and finished the job in one day versus two. American Waterworks should be very happy to have such hardworking employees. Thanks for a job well done!

    Sump Pump Installed in Waterville, IA

    A homeowner in Waterville, IA had water leaking into their basement, making them feel nervous about the value of their home. They got a FREE estimate scheduled with our Design Specialist, Josh. Josh went to the homeowner's house, carefully inspected their basement, and determined a solution that would fit their wants and needs. The homeowner was confident in Josh's proposal, so they followed through with the project and set up a date for the installation.

    Our Foreman, Arturo, and his production team began the installation by breaking out the concrete with a jackhammer, forming a hole. Inside the hole, our team installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System followed by the discharge line. Our TripleSafe Sump Pump is triple the protection compared to other sump pumps that we provide and it solves all three water problems in one unit. From that point, our team filled the open gaps with river rock and pea gravel and applied new concrete over them. The homeowner was very satisfied with the work that was performed and had a great experience!
