How Does Your Sump Pump Work?
When professionally installed, maintained, and serviced, a sump pump serves to effectively pump water out of your home. During installation, our technicians dig a pit at the lowest point of your home. This pit is what’s called the sump. The sump pump is inserted either in or directly above the sump, with a drainpipe leading from the pump out of the house.
When water enters this area, it flows naturally into the sump. Then when the water levels get high enough, the sump pump will activate to do its job. Sump pumps are extremely effective at removing excess water from the room in which they are installed.
What Are the Benefits of Sump Pumps?
As we discussed above, even the smallest amount of water damage in the wrong location can cost you a significant amount of money in repairs. Not only are crawlspaces and basements more susceptible to flooding than other areas of your home due to their location, but they are typically visited less often than other areas as well. This makes catching flooding threats early enough to prevent damage without a sump pump unlikely.
After a professional installation or sump pump replacement, you can rest assured that minor flooding won’t turn into a major problem. Your sump pump is self–regulating, meaning that you don’t have to turn it on and off manually. All that is required of you is to schedule routine maintenance and prompt sump pump repairs if it develops an issue. With this, you’ll get the peace of mind of knowing that your basement or crawlspace won’t flood any time soon!
Trust Us for Professional Sump Pump Services
Digging a hole in your ground floor to insert a sump pump may seem like a simple enough procedure for an inexperienced handyman or amateur plumber. However, the position of your sump pump is pretty important, requiring that it and its drainage pipe be installed precisely. Otherwise, the entire system will fail to do its intended job.
Additionally, as we mentioned above, sump pump maintenance is key when fending off repair needs. Sump pump problems don’t happen frequently, but when they do it can get serious (and fast!), and since you won’t rely on your sump pump too often, problems are easy to miss. This is why annual maintenance is so vital. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
