Do you have a sump pump installed in your home? The answer is probably...most homes built in the last 40 years are equipped with a sump pump.
Sump pumps preform an important job! A sump pump is used to remove surface rainwater that has accumulated in a water collection basin, commonly found in a corner of your basement. The sump pumps job is to send water away from a home, to a place where water is no longer problematic.
Sump pumps are especially necessary where basement flooding is common, and also used to remedy dampness where the water table is above the foundation of the home. For homeowners that live in areas where flooding is prevalent, a Battery Back-Up System is highly recommended. In case of a power outage, the battery backup allows for reaction time before any flooding can occur.
It is important to remember because sump pumps are there only when you need them, to make sure they are regularly maintained and checked for proper operation at least 4 times per year.
