We bet you don't think of sump pump as one of the most important appliances in your home. It's not the most recognized piece of equipment and maybe you never even heard of it until you started researching this topic. But we don't need to convince you about the problems that water can cause when it builds-up in your basement or crawl space.
It's painful even to imagine a flooded home - but let's be realistic, sometimes all that's needed is a heavy rain to tip the water levels over the edge.
That's when a Sump Pump will come to save the day. If properly installed it takes care of the risks of flooding, mold, and damp.
Do you need to install Sump Pump in your home?
Most basement water issues might not be basement issues at all. Often the problems start in the exterior drainage. Before you make up your mind about some particular solution, there are things that you can investigate yourself.
First check your drainage system, on a rainy day if possible. Does it do the job; can it perform better?
Check that your gutters are not clogged, and then check if downspout extensions move water runoff at least 4 feet beyond your foundation. Does the soil within 3 feet of your foundation slopes away from the house?
Did you find any issues? No matter what is the answer, it may be a good time to schedule a visit from one of our technicians to discuss Sump Pump installation. One day this appliance might just save your home and your sanity.
