How a Sump Pump Works to Protect You
Why do you need a good sump pump? For one, it’s your first and best line of defense. Sump pumps are a system that moves water from one place to another. It’s the one thing that’s going to move the water from the sump pit (a hole in the ground) to somewhere that’s going to be far away from the building. So, what happens when it rains? Or when the ground is saturated with snow melt? Well, the water will find the next best place to travel and most likely it will under your home. Flooding can happen at any time during the year. And if the ground around your house is sloped towards the structure or your gutter are clogged-you’re bound to have problems. Nobody wants to deal with a flooded basement especially with the holidays coming up. Not to mention it could result in thousands of dollars in damage, plus the potential loss of items you treasure. So, whether you are prone to flooding or simply have a washing machine in the basement, then it is wise to invest in a sump pump for your home and for the sake of your own sanity. So, stay keep your basement protected and dry this winter, call Mike’s Plumbing & Heating today!
