Do I Need a Sump Pump?
If your property is in a flood zone or on a floodplain, we highly recommend a sump pump. Even a home with insufficient rain gutters should consider this device. Water can easily accumulate and pool. A sump pump is designed to move water away from your home, protecting it from the possibility of a flood.
But rainy weather isn’t the only way a sump pump can save your structure. A burst pipe or faulty water heater can also create flooding issues. Rest easy knowing you have a sump pump in place that will turn on when moisture is detected.
Which Sump Pump Should I Buy?
Sump pumps are engineered in different ways for different reasons. The sump pump you choose should depend on your unique situation; the square footage of your home, your budget, and your water protection needs. These are the main types:
- Most popular option
- Located underwater
- Quiet operation
- Long lifespan
- Sits above water
- Slightly noisier when running
- Easier to access for service and repairs
Both options can be installed with a battery back-up in case of a power outage.
Water leaks and flooding can lead to foundation damage. We offer slab leak repair services!
