Sump Pumps

System Installation and Maintenance

Sump pumps are designed to detect when there is water coming up from the ground. For this reason they are installed inside of the sump barrel which is located at the lowest point in the basement. When the sump pump recognizes that there is water rising inside the barrel, it begins to pump water out of the basement.

Sump pump installation is often a preventive measure against the risks of flooding. Most homeowners who have one installed look at it as insurance against potential flooding. After all, if your basement is finished, or being used for storage, flooding can be devastating.

Understanding when Sump Pump Installation is Necessary

Most often a sump pump will be installed in a basement or crawl space. If you live in an area prone to flooding, or you have a basement or crawl space that easily fills with water during heavy storms, you may want to consider the installation of a sump pump. This systems is designed to pump excess water out of a low lying area and move the water to a safe location, for example a storm drain. 

Excess water can cause a number of problems for your home: 

  • Potential foundation problems  – when water sits on top of the lowest part of your home, it seeps into the foundation. This can make the foundation prone to shifting and cause any wood structures to soften and rot.
  • Development of mold and mildew – What encourages a rapid growth of mold and mildew is cool air, darkness, and moisture, which your basement or crawlspace will have, especially when water sits in your basement for a prolonged period of time. Mold and mildew can seriously damage your personal property and cause major danger to those living in your home.
