The IceGuard discharge line system offers water an escape route from a clogged pipe.
Water escapes from the IceGuard® fitting only when the discharge line becomes clogged. Otherwise, water flows past the slotted openings into the drain pipe.
Are you worried that your discharge line might freeze over when the temperatures drop?
We install the patented IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged.
The specially engineered IceGuard® system solves the problem of frozen discharge lines to provide you with a reliable waterproofing system even during the coldest temperatures. IceGuard® is a perfect solution to sump pump discharge lines in Maryland. Contact us today for a free installation estimate.
A proper discharge line for a sump pump shouldn’t end just outside the foundation wall. If it does, discharge water will likely seep back into your basement or crawl space before long, especially when temperatures drop below freezing.
Instead, a slightly sloped discharge pipe should run underground, a minimum of 10 feet, to daylight where possible (and to a drywell or drain field when not possible). Things sometimes go wrong, however, because drain lines are sometimes susceptible to freezing, especially when you live in Maryland.
This can occur at a snow- and ice-covered outlet or inside the pipe itself. If the discharge pipe is blocked, your pump will continue to run but the system won’t expel water.
The result? A flooded basement.
When this home’s discharge line was blocked by frozen snow and ice, IceGuard® allowed the water to escape during repeated pump cycles and saved the basement from flooding.
If you live in the Northern Maryland area where the discharge line from your sump pump is susceptible to freezing in the winter, consider installing IceGuard.
There are no valves to turn or hoses to attach – operation is automatic. Under normal operation, no water will spill through the open slots due to its flared design.
IceGuard® is just one of the many sump pump features we install, offered exclusively to us by Basement Systems.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”
“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”
“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
