If you’ve ever had to deal with the stress of your basement flooding during heavy rain or bad weather, you know that the cleanup process can be expensive and time-consuming. Not only do you have to deal with water damage, you also have to handle potential mold and mildew issues and replace any damaged carpeting, furniture, or other personal items.
Instead of dealing with the expense that comes with your basement flooding, it may be time to consider installing a sump pump. Or, if you have a sump pump but it’s not working properly, you may need to call a plumber for repair or replacement. Don’t wait for your basement to flood – get in touch with Proficient Heating & Plumbing today to discuss your options and keep your property damage-free.
What Is A Sump Pump?
Simply put, a sump pump is a pump installed at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually placed at the lowest point in your basement. When water is diverted to the sump pit, your sump pump will quickly pump it to the nearest storm drain, retention pond, or dry well, keeping it out of your basement and preventing water damage. While newer homes often come with a sump pump already installed, an older home may need to be retrofitted with a sump pump system to have the same flood prevention.
Why Install A Sump Pump?
The most obvious reason to install a sump pump is, of course, to prevent your basement from flooding. However, you may also want to upgrade or replace your sump pump for a more energy-efficient model, or to change from a manual to an automatic pump. At Proficient Plumbing & Heating, we’ll discuss your options with you to make sure you are getting the right sump pump system for your needs and your budget. If you live in a flood-prone area, a sump pump is an invaluable investment that could save you a ton of money in repair costs in the long run – not to mention the relief you’ll have knowing that your property is safe from flooding.
