Consider a Sump Pump for Basement Waterproofing

A sump pump prevents flooding in your home by activating a pump as soon as water begins to fill the basement. Installation can be somewhat difficult, as it involves making careful measurements and having a background in plumbing, as well as the proper equipment. First, technicians locate the lowest point in your basement. Then they dig a hole at this point—the "sump" part of the term sump pump—and insert a pump with an impeller that forces water out through a drain pipe.

There are two basic types of sump pumps—a pedestal pump and a submersible pump. A submersible pump is placed directly into the sump, with every component submerged in the reservoir, including the motor. It is encased in a waterproof container which makes it quieter than a pedestal pump. The motor of a pedestal pump, on the other hand, sits above the sump with a hose leading into the pit, and it may be less susceptible to repair issues. It’s best to entrust a technician with deciding which unit is best or your home.

Sump Pump Installation & Repair

In order to install a sump pump properly, you should only choose plumbing professionals to do the work.
