What Are Sump Pumps?
Sump pumps are a type of emergency pump that can alleviate many of your water leakage concerns. They are setup to only operate when the water table reaches a certain point. As soon as it does, they pump the excess water out through a pipe into an area of the yard that will not drain back into the house. Most sump pumps are powerful enough to cover an entire basement or foundation area. This is good during emergencies such as floods and burst pipes as it can prevent further damage from occurring in the foundations of your home.
How Are Sump Pumps Beneficial to Your Home?
Sump pumps are an excellent way of ensuring that overflow water from your yard does not leak into your house. You might be surprised at how much damage moisture can cause to either a basement or a foundation, but it can. Many homes are built on soil that has a high amount of clay content, causing it to drain improperly. Oftentimes, even with drains installed when the home is built, a serious rainstorm can cause water to pool in the basement. A properly installed sump pump can make a huge difference by draining water that exists in the soil around the walls and foundation of your home before it gets an opportunity to seep through.
What Are Common Issues That Can Be Prevented By a Sump Pump?
If you have recently noticed water pooling in your basement or discoloration in your foundation, then it isn’t a bad idea to consider having us come out and provide you with an estimate to put a sump pump in. Soggy ground around your foundation after storms is another sign that your water table has risen and your drainage system cannot keep up with it.
In addition, many foundations appear solid, but when water sits underneath and around them for a while, they start to weaken and crumble. It isn’t hard to see this- but to do so you must often climb under your house and inspect the entire foundation. With our experience in the business, we can tell you right away which parts of your house are affected and work that into any planning that is done for sump pump installation.
