A sump pump is a device that prevents water from accumulating in the foundation or basement of your home. It is no secret that if water is sitting in the basement, it can compromise your home’s foundation. To prevent water from entering your building, contact a specialist to install a sump pump.
The installation will lay pipes on the outside of your building or home. The water from your property will be sent to the main line sewers or somewhere away from your property where the water does not cause a problem, such as a municipal storm drain or dry well. The sump pump that will be installed in the basement or on the ground floor of your building will automatically pump out the water that comes down your drain pipes. The device will prevent both visible and invisible water damage to your home or business.
PREVENT NASTY WATER BUILD UP WITH SUMP PUMP
Dirty water build up on your property can compromise your health and the safety of your living space. Allergies, water borne diseases, and respiratory infections are just some of the hazards that you may experience from water build-up. Draining the water out from the basement is nearly impossible without a quality sump pump. Because of the importance of a sump pump in your building, it is important to call a real specialist in your area. The installation process involves routing an outlet pipe, lining piping and digging a sump pit. These process is very complicated and should be only done by experts.
TYPES OF SUMP PUMPS
A pressure sensor or float activator is usually used to activate sump pumps when the sump pit is filled with water. Sump pumps are connected to pipes that run to a drainage area outside the building designed to hold the water without any problem. However, there are sump pumps that are manually operated and do not have an inbuilt sensor. If you have an old sump pump, you may want to install a new one with built in sensor.
Sump pumps that are available in the market today come in two designs. The submersible design is placed in the pit with a waterproof casing. On the top of the pump is the outlet and at the very bottom of the device is the actual pump. Another type is the pedestal pump where the pump sits outside the pit. Pedestal pump uses an inlet pipe to take the water out of the pit and into the pump.
