Sump Pump Installation
Water can do a lot of damage to your home. In fact, your home is designed primarily to keep water out. When water starts to accumulate in your crawl space, it can spell trouble for the structural integrity of your home. In areas where standing water are prevalent, it is critical to have a system in place to divert water off of the property. One solution to this problem is the installation of a sump pump.
A sump pump is a drainage system that moves water from one place to another. It consists of a basin installed at the lowest point of your crawl space with a pump inside. A system of trenches is also usually dug to help water to flow towards the basin. As water flows and collects in the basin, the pump will automatically kick on and start pumping the water through pipes that are plumbed into the existing underground gutter drains, which will typically move the water out to the street.
Why You Should Install One?
Without a measure in place to divert water out of your crawl space, standing water can begin to build up without your knowledge, wreaking havoc underneath your home. A sump pump can prevent problems from happening. Having a dry crawl space is important in the overall health of your home. Standing water can do more than just effect the structural integrity of a home, it can also be a conducive condition for all kinds of pests, including wood destroying pests like termites.
