It’s likely you’re going to have to deal with a flooded basement at some point and it doesn’t take much water to cause thousands of dollars of damage. Even without flooding, a moist basement can lead to mold and mildew growth.
At Your Service Plumbing can help you keep your home dry, even on the rainiest days.
Sump pumps have been in homes for years, but became a requirement in 1987 with the Federal Clean Water Act. It is very common to see sump pumps in newly constructed homes.
By installing a sump pump in the lowest part of your basement or crawlspace, you can prevent flooding and keep the area dry. Most of the time a sump pump is installed in a custom-made sump pit. When water flows into the sump pit, the sump pump pumps the water away from your home, keeping you flood-free and dry.
