Crawl Space Sump Pumps
Oregon is notorious for extensive crawl space water intrusion, and Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver leads the way with long-lasting solutions to your water issues.
Most crawl spaces were built with dirt floors with no concern about leaking groundwater. Our Northwest clay soils are a firm recipe for standing water in your crawl space. We treat the source of the problem by using a waterproofing system which will collect, contain, and remove the water from the crawl space. It’s time to tell that water where to go!
At Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver, we offer you different sump pumps for specific situations. Each has a discharge line to carry the water safely to the outside of your crawl space. Each also has an alarm that sounds in the event of pump failure.
Our base model contains one pump and is designed specifically for crawl spaces. Its lower profile over other sump pumps makes for an easier installation in tight spaces. Optional battery back-up pumps are also available, keeping your crawl space dry in the event of a power outage.
It is necessary to have the standing water pumped out of your crawl space to help reduce the relative humidity that contributes to the cause of mold, rot, and pests that thrive under your home.

Frequently Asked Sump Pump Questions
Do I need a sump pump in my crawl space?
It depends on whether you have current or potential water issues. Is your house on very flat land? In a “swampy” area? On poorly draining soil, or on clay? If you have a basement, your homeowner’s insurance may require one since it tends to be below the water table.
How do I get water out of my crawl space? (note: this is the same answer as above)
Your first step is to determine what is causing the water to enter (leaking plumbing, nearby hillside runoff, etc.), so this can be reduced or stopped. You then need to get the water out with a sump pump. If you have a big house, you may need more than one. To augment the sump pump, many people also add a dehumidifier specially designed for under a house. You need to keep the relative humidity below 60% to keep mold from growing.
How does a sump pump work in a crawl space?
There are different types of sump pumps. Some have more than more than one pump. Some have a battery back-up to still work when the power goes out. A sump should be installed in the lowest point in a crawl space so that water will run into it. Water is guided to the sump in different ways. The water is pushed up through a discharge pipe and safely away from your home.
