Nothing about a sump pump system is pretty, but not having a primary sump pump system in your basement or crawl space can result in costly repairs. For basements and crawl spaces that have issues with water accumulation, our sump pumps can provide peace of mind and are wonderful tools that we utilize when performing foundation repair services on a regular basis.
TYPES OF SUMP PUMPS
There are two basic designs when it comes to sump pumps. The first is a submersible pump which sits in the bottom of a sump pit submerged in the water. The sump pump itself has waterproof housing. The second type of primary sump pump is a pedestal pump. In the case of a pedestal pump, the pedestal positions the pump out of the pit and out of the water, even when the pit is full. A specially designed pipe reaches down into the bottom of the pit to draw the water out. Sump pumps use float devices to determine water levels in the sump pit. An automatic system will pump water out of the sump pit and safely out of your basement or crawl space.
Having been in the basement waterproofing business for over 30 years, we have tested almost every sump pump sold in today’s market. Most sump pumps have an average life span of 5 to 10 years. After long periods of time, it may fail without warning. We can replace your existing sump pump, or if your house is not equipped with one, install a brand new system. Our newly installed systems are complete with a sealed basin and high water alarm to alert you if any potential problems arise. We can assist you with the selection, as there are many factors to consider including manual or automatic, battery backup sump pump, or sump pump alarm systems.
