Sump pumps are almost a necessity in every home.
These little pumps have an automatic float that turn on the pump and remove ground water from under the basement floor.
Typically the sump pit receives that water via the foundation drainage system.
- We recommend a good quality submersible sump pump rather than a cheap column style pump.
- They are quieter and more reliable.
- During heavy rainfall or in the springtime with snow melt it is extremely important to have a your sump pump in good working order to avoid a flooded basement.
Audible sump alarms can also be added as an accessory to let you know when the water rises above a pre-set level, warning you that something is wrong.
