Why Should You Get A Sump Pump?
The most important part of keeping your home safe and well maintained is preventative maintenance. A sump pump is one of these preventive care tools. In the event of a flood or burst pipe, the sump pump will work to remove excess water from your home. This can not only keep your home dry in the event of a water related emergency, but it will also provide you with the peace of mind knowing that your home is safe.
What Kind Of Pump Do I Need?
As we previously stated, sump pumps are immensely valuable for homes that are located in areas that experience frequent heavy rains or flooding. Similarly, they can be used as a safety precaution in the event of a plumbing emergency such as a burst pipe. The pump is placed in the lowest lying area of the basement, which is referred to as a sump pit. Excess water drains into the sump pit and the pump transports it out of the pit and away from the house.
There are a few different types of sump pumps available. Depending on your needs, budget, location and house structure. They include:
Primary Sump Pumps – These pumps are commonly used for home installations. They are able to pump out a maximum of a few thousand gallons per hour. Primary sump pumps come in two varieties.
The pedestal pump is a type of pump that is not placed inside of the sump pit but is rather situated in a location slightly above the water. These pumps are efficient because of their flexibility, however the motor is exposed and therefore cannot be submerged in water.
The submersible pump is intended to be placed directly inside of the water in the sump pit. These are generally more efficient and also more effective as they can easily detect excess water issues. Additionally they are more aesthetically pleasing because they are submerged at all times.
Battery Backup Sump Pumps – Sump pumps that have a battery backup feature are a lifesaver for whenever a severe storm knocks out your home’s main power supply. They can remain charged for very long periods of time, so you never have to worry about continually re-charging the battery. You can choose to either install a primary sump pump that has a battery backup feature or purchase a secondary battery backup pump to use during power outages.
No matter which pump you choose, our expert technicians can assist you in selecting the model that is within your budget and install it efficiently. Call us today to find out how a sump pump can benefit you!
