What is a sump pump?
Protect your crawl space and basement from flooding and moisture rot.
Water from heavy rain falls, melting snow, roof’s rain gutters, leaking pipes and even from your lawn can get into your crawl space.
A Sump Pump can protect your home from costly repairs by removing the problem before it begins. The pump protects your crawlspace by routing the water away from it.
When the water reaches a pre set level, a float switch triggers the Sump Pump to engage – at which point it begins to remove water into a nearby storm drain or outdoor area.
Determining The Right Drainage System Is The Key To Solving Your Crawl Space Water Problems.
Sump Pump FAQ's
Sump pumps move water from your crawl space and out of your home. A sump is a pit carved below the surface of your crawl space floor and the pump is fitted into this pit.
Short answer is “Not necessarily”. We install a sump pump if there is a lot of water inside the crawl space. If the flooding is minor, we can instead create a natural drainage path for the water to flow out.
Pumps have an average life expectancy of around 10 years. They will eventually fail and need replacing.
Fitting a sump pump is not just a plumbing job!
Location of the sump is very important, and this requires a through understanding of the causes of water accumulating in your crawl space.
A professionally installed drainage system, with or without a sump pump removes standing and excess water from your crawl space or basement, preventing serious water damage to the foundations. Even after excess water is drained, mold and mildew can grow in the damp environment. If ignored, this can pose a structural and healthy threat.
