Everyone needs a reliable water supply, but what happens when there’s too much water? Excess water needs to be directed outside your home, as it can result in indoor flooding. This requires a reliable installation built into the plumbing system to detect and expel excess water.
Sump pumps do exactly that — they pump excess water out of the basement, preventing flooding. These devices are a key home improvement investment for homeowners living in areas close to the waterline and are prone to floods.
A sump pump is installed in a small sump pump pit wherein excess water is directed to flow in order to be drained out. It’s a flood protection system that prevents excess water from accumulating by safely directing it to a central basin, which the pump then discharges to a safe, designated area.
Sump pumps are powered by electricity, preferably backed up by an alternate power source in case of an outage. When properly installed, it allows for water to be safely redirected outside your home, preventing flooding that damages furniture, appliances, and even structural integrity.
