Moisture buildup can be harmful to a home’s structural integrity. For homes with moisture problems in the basement or crawlspace, a functioning sump pump is essential for the structural integrity of the home, and can prevent mold and mildew from occurring, posing a threat to your family’s health.
A sump pump will keep the area beneath the home dry, and transport the collected water away from your property into a storm drain or other approved drainage. To receive sump pump services in Staten Island contact us to schedule service.
Water tables can change, rain can cause area flooding, and a water line may burst. In any of these conditions, water can cause severe damage to the home and its foundation. A sump pump is designed to keep the area beneath your home dry.
A sump pump uses a sump pit in your basement where water collects. When the water reaches a particular level in the pit, the pump automatically starts pumping the water through a drain, and safely away from your home.
In addition, a battery backup sump pump is recommended, especially for homes with frequent flooding. A primary sump pump operates on electricity, and when a power outage occurs, the primary pump will not operate. A battery backup sump pump ensures the removal of water during a power outage. In addition, the battery back-up pump can assist the primary pump when heavy flooding occurs.
The sump pump is available in a variety of horsepower, and types, with the pedestal style and submersible sump pumps being the most common.
- A pedestal pump is an electric sump pump that activates when the water reaches a certain level.
- Submersible pumps are similar to pedestal pumps, but are installed under water. The submersible makes less noise than pedestal pumps, and has the advantage of having a cover.
With a lid that prevents the pit from being a safety hazard, the submersible is the pump of choice for finished basements. Determining the proper size and type of sump pump unique to each basement’s needs should be provided by a qualified licensed plumber.
