What Is a Sump Pump and What Does It Do?
A sump pump is a device designed to prevent water damage in basements and crawl spaces by removing excess water and preventing flooding. It is typically installed in a pit, called a sump pit, located in the lowest part of the area prone to water accumulation. When water enters the pit, the sump pump activates, pumping the water out and away from the building.
The primary function of a sump pump is to protect your home from water damage caused by heavy rain, melting snow, or plumbing issues. By efficiently removing water, it helps to keep your basement or crawl space dry and prevents the growth of mold and mildew.
Sump pump installation offers several advantages for homeowners, including:
- Flood Prevention: A sump pump is a reliable defense against basement and crawl space flooding, preventing costly water damage and the need for extensive repairs.
- Mold and Mildew Prevention: By removing excess moisture, sump pumps help to control humidity levels, reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth, which can lead to respiratory issues and structural damage.
- Increased Property Value: Having a functional sump pump system in place adds value to your property, as it reassures potential buyers that your basement or crawl space is protected from water damage.
