SUMP PUMP SERVICE - DAYTON OHIO
Most people aren’t familiar with sump pumps until they become a homeowner. Sump pumps are usually installed underneath the floor of basements and crawl spaces to move groundwater away from your home. This is essential when you have large amounts of rain in a short period of time or a lot of melting snow. Groundwater may rise through the cracks in the foundation in your home during heavy periods of rain, causing water damage. Sump pumps collect rising water and direct it away from your home before it can damage your property.
If you have a basement/crawl space that experiences wetness and moisture, you should consider having a sump pump installed. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 60% of homes experience ground wetness and moisture. A sump pump engages most when bad weather occurs, just as the power is likely to go out. Will your sump pump work if that happens?
What is a Sump Pump & How Does It Work?
A sump pump is a small pump that is installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawl space that collects ground water and then redirects the water outside so it won’t gather underneath the house or in a place that is dangerous and will cause water damage. It is essentially an extra security measure you can take to protect your home from flooding and water damage. A sump pump is placed in a hole drilled in to the foundation of your house that is then connected to the sump pumps outlet port with a drain line. The sump pump acts as a literal pump that collects rain/melting snow water draining in to the area that the sump pump is and when full takes the water out of the area and pumps it outside.
