Sat in a Muddy Hole in the Ground for Three Months (quality pump)!

We have used various pumps over the years, however now employ pumps supplied by Newton Waterproofing.

One such example involves a temporary automatic 110v site pump, which we have had in place on a site where a retrofit land drain detail is proposed, however this installation is awaiting fair weather, and as a result we have left this pump sat in a muddy hole, since mid-December 2014, chugging away and keeping pressure from bearing upon the structure at high level.

We had been told that these pumps were this rugged and literally could be placed in a muddy hole in the ground; however it is nice to see in practice.  I would have expected a typical pump to fail but am pleasantly surprised.  These are the same brand of pump that we install in our basement waterproofing systems, and this demonstrates the quality of that equipment.

Offered advice and help even though we didn't end up going through with the survey. Great service, will use again."

  • “Just had Trace in to deal with a fairly significant damp problem in our house. The work was completed to a very high standard in the timescale agreed before commencement. Really good communication throughout and the tradesmen were really professional. Left the house as tidy as possible every day and I’m made up with the outcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.”
