If your basement is prone to flooding, consider installing a sump pump. Sump pumps move water out from the basement or crawl space. Pumps fill up with water, and once the water reaches a certain level, the water is pumped out and moved to a different location out of the property.
There are a few different types of sump pumps, each providing their own benefits. A submersible sump pump is a smaller unit that contains both the pump and motor on a single unit, the submersion is hard on the machine, and it may not last as long as other options.
A battery-operated backup can provide additional peace of mind, as the pump is not affected by any power outages.
Finally, a pedestal sump pump has a motor seperate from the pump itself, and is easily accesible for any mainetance. The placement of the pump takes up more space and can be slightly noisier.
A sump pump is a great option to consider should your basement be prone to water damage or flooding. Reach out to our experts today for more information
