What are Sump Pumps?
Sump Pumps are simple by design but hugely effective in keeping basement properties dry. It is common for water to accumulate in water collecting sump basins and this can be disastrous if that happens to be the basement of your home or business. It can result in water from heavy rain entering your property if your basement is below the water table level, or even worse if the perimeter drains, funnel directly into the basin.
This can render your basement unusable and cost a lot to rectify so it is best to tackle the problem head on. With property prices so high, space is at a premium so an unusable basement is not an option. Flooding and dampness can also take over your whole house so it should not be taken lightly. Even if your basement does not actually flood, the moisture in the basement can lead to mold and potential health problems for you and your family so installing a Sump pump is a smart decision.
Sump pumps were devised to eliminate moisture and prevent flooding by removing ground water that has built up under your house, and send the water away from the foundations of your property. This solves the potential problem of basement flooding or dampness. The pump is not a huge piece of machinery, it can mostly go unnoticed in the corner of your room all the while doing an amazing job of keeping your home dry.
It has an automated flotation system with a switch that is activated by the water level, so when water reaches a certain level the pump kicks into action. The Sump pump ensures the excess water will be channelled to a storm drain or dry well and is no longer an issue for you.
