What is a Sump Pump
A sump pump is a suction device that removes water near the foundation of a building. Typically, sump pumps are installed in basements, but in homes without basements, these pumps are found in crawlspaces or garages.
Sump pumps remove water that finds its way into the home. While these devices do not prevent leaks, they do remove water that would otherwise damage your property. In the event of catastrophic flooding, sump pumps can help keep your home safe until flood conditions abate.
Sump Pump Installation Basics
While sump pumps are reasonably simple pieces of equipment, sump pump installation is hard to tackle for anyone but a seasoned professional. In addition to understanding how sump pumps work, it’s also necessary to factor in the qualities of the building’s foundation, the topographical features of the area, and various complex plumbing principles. Most importantly, the new sump pump must be installed at the lowest point of the building.
Homes and commercial properties are sometimes built with drainage in mind. If this is the case, your building may already have a sloped floor in the basement or crawlspace with a drainage area in the center. Sump pump installation will be easier in this event; otherwise, it’s necessary to plot out the exact location of your home’s low point and modify the floor in that area to admit a sump pump.
Sump pumps use electricity, so they need to be installed near outlets or electrical lines. Water and electricity don’t mix, which is one compelling reason for choosing professional sump pump repair.
Why is Prompt Sump Pump Repair Important?
Never wait for a flood to repair your sump pump. While it’s easy to forget about that malfunctioning pump in your basement when the skies are clear and the rivers are low, it’s your property on the line the moment water starts encroaching on your home. Keep an eye on your sump pump, and repair it promptly if it isn’t operating correctly. Don’t wait until the rainy season!
