Sump Pumps

Is Battery Back-up Sump Pump necessarySump pumps are an essential part of keeping basements dry, as they remove any water that has accumulated in the water basin and redirect it to another area like a dry well or storm sewer. Sump pumps typically run in conjunction with a waterproofing system, in the event that the water table is located above the foundation of your home and water or dampness becomes an issue. Excess water can greatly affect the structure of your home, most notably at the site of the foundation, so having a good water redirecting and removal system in place is an important part of taking care of your home.

The Most Common Causes of Sump Pump FailureEven despite regular maintenance and choosing only the highest quality products, believe it or not, there are moments when electric machines stop working.
