April Showers Bring May Flowers, Right?
While no one will miss seeing all that snow go away, or seeing their grass turn greener once again, the aftermath of these events can be harmful to your basement or crawl space: Floods.
In order to safeguard your basement from becoming soaked, you need to get yourself a sump pump.
The unfortunate truth is that about 95% of homes will experience water damage in the basement at least once, and you certainly don't want it to happen to you!
Fortunately, sump pumps have a number of helpful features:
Different Parts of Your Sump Pump
If water were to leak into your home, it has to reach a certain height before the sump pump will cycle on. An alarm will sound if the pump has not gone on when it should of.
Stands are a critical feature of your system because they keep the pump off of the liner and prevent any build-up at the bottom of the pit from getting into your pump.
Discharge Line Protection
Sump pumps aren't something you can remove when the weather turns cold. Because of that, it's possible for the lines to freeze during the colder months. To avoid this, you can have the line protection installed outside of your home. This safety measure will make sure that even if the underground pipe freezes, water will still be taken out of your basement.
You need sump liners to keep your pump working, to ensure that it doesn't cycle on an off too frequently, and to keep it from failing.
Sump pump lids need to stay secured so they can keep moisture and odors out, which also protects your system from any debris. These lids are also great for keeping kids and animals from playing in the water.
