DO I NEED A SUMP PUMP?
While the benefits of sump pumps are clear, some properties need these devices more than others. We recommend installing a sump pump if any of the following is true:
You live in a climate that receives heavy rain or snow. Here in the northwest, we get more than our fair share of moisture. Unlike desert climates, basements here are very susceptible to flooding.
Your home is built on a flood-prone plot. Poorly draining soil, low-lying properties, and homes surrounded by hills are more likely to experience rising groundwater levels during heavy rains, snowstorms, and spring runoff.
You’ve had water problems in the past. If your basement has flooded before, or you regularly struggle with high basement moisture levels, it would be wise to install a sump pump.
You have a finished basement. Even if your home isn’t categorized as a high-risk property, consider protecting your underground living space with an affordable sump pump.
Where Is The Sump Pump Located?
A sump pump is generally found at the lowest point of your home in the basement or crawl space. Its job is to remove rising groundwater and surface runoff before it has the chance to seep into the home.
Accumulated water can cause interior damage and encourages the growth of mold, mildew, and fungus. The sump pump should always be maintained to ensure all components are working reliably. Ideally, your sump pump should be inspected at least once a year. If your pump runs continuously or repeatedly as a result of a high water table or excess drainage, it may require additional examinations throughout the year.
How Does A Sump Pump Work?
Sump pumps move water from your basement out of your home. A sump is a naturally constructed pit, usually a hole dug below the main surface of your basement floor. This pit, known as a ”Basin”, houses the sump pump. The pump is equipped with valves that sense rising water levels or pressure.
When the water gets too high, the sump pump automatically start up and pumps the excess water out of the basement and away from your property using a discharge line. This line, called an effluent, connects the sump pump to a designated drainage area, such as a dry well, a creek or pond, or even a neighborhood drain.
