Replacing Your Old Sump Pump
Benefits of Installing a Sump Pump
Prevent flooding in basements
During heavy rain, there is a high risk of flooding in basements. A sump pump installed in the sump pit helps homeowners divert the water from their property before it reaches the basement.
Prevent the growth of fungi
Areas with torrential rain or high water table have a potential risk of water seeping into your basement and increasing humidity. Damp spaces in your basement can become a breeding ground for fungi, mould and algae.
Save you from an electrical fire
When water floods into your basement, it damages your electrical appliances. This damage can lead to a short circuit, resulting in an electrical fire outbreak. Install a sump pump today to protect your family from this disastrous situation.
Increase in your property value
Buyers want to invest in properties where they don’t have to worry about basement flooding, leakages, and improper sewage systems. A well-maintained sump pump system assures buyers of safety, durability, and no extra cost, which increases the value of your property.
Potential Issues with a Sump Pump
Wrong size sump pump
If the size is incorrect, the efficiency will be affected. If the sump pump is smaller, water will overflow the sump pit, and the basement will be flooded.
Clogged or frozen pipe
When the pipe is blocked or frozen due to debris, water extraction will not occur; hence the sump pump will not work.
Excessive rainfall can cause a power outage in your area, and the sump pump will not work with a lack of power.
When the sump pump is installed improperly, it can lead to recurring problems and inefficiency.
