A sump pump is the perfect solution to prevent basement flooding, and to ease dampness in homes that are located in areas with high water tables.
By removing the water that accumulates in your basement's sump pit and sending it away from your home to a municipal storm drain or dry well, you will maintain the integrity of your foundation by keeping it dry.
There are two types of sump pumps commonly used: pedestal and submersible. A pedestal sump pump's motor is mounted above the sump pit, making it easier to repair and service. A submersible sump pump is installed inside the sump pit, and is sealed in place to prevent electrical malfunction.
It is important to service and maintain your sump pump at least annually. Their intricate mechanics need regular attention to make sure they are running properly, especially in areas with high water tables which may be prone to frequent flooding. Additionally, any obstructions need to be removed promptly. Debris, including sand, gravel and dirt may hinder the operation of a sump pump, decreasing its ability to drain adequately.
