Sump Pump Service - Dayton Ohio

There are many things homeowners don’t know about owning a home and a majority of the time sump pumps are one of those things. Sump pumps are usually installed underneath the floor of basements and crawl spaces so they are closest to the ground so they can collect ground water that collects underneath the home. This is essential when you have long periods of rain in a day or many days of rain, or even a lot of melting snow. Ground water can easily rise through the cracks in the foundation in your home during long periods of rain and cause water damage. The sump pump collects that water before it can damage your home and redirects it away from your home! 

Not every home needs one but 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 do experience ground wetness and moisture and should consider installing a sump pump!

Sump pump installations often take specialized equipment and experience to install a complete sump pump system. Although it is recommended that you hire a professional plumber to install a sump pump, there are steps you can follow to install your own.

For example; you must start by determining if your basement has a perimeter drain or sump pit, and then you must relieve the hydrostatic pressure that causes the flooding but jackhammering a perimeter drainage channel and sump pit. Then you must install a drain pipe and drainage system so the water can have a place to go. Then you must install the sump pump liner and then the sump pump. After that is done you must patch the floor up with Mortar. You can then power it all up and make sure the sump pump has its own circuit. When that is done you have to install the exterior drain line.
