Different Sump Pumps
Flooding occurs when a large volume of water finds its way into a home’s basement or foundation. It’s common for this to happen as a result of extreme weather events such as during storms or the morning after a big snowfall. Sump pumps help homeowners avoid this problem by directing water away from a home’s basement and toward designated area where it can’t reach your property. There are two types of sump pumps to choose from:
These sump pumps are installed underground, so they’re not seen or heard by homeowners. If you don’t have a lot of extra space, submersible pumps may be the best option for you. They have a long life expectancy, but also tend to be more expensive than pedestal pumps.
These sump pumps need a motor to function, which means they must be installed above ground. They’re a good option for homes that have an existing sump pit or if homeowners are turned off by the high cost of submersible pumps.
Water-Powered Backup Sump Pumps
If you want even more flooding protection for your basement, consider investing in a water-powered backup sump pump. A water-powered sump pump doesn’t rely on electricity to function, so there’s no need to worry about it failing. It works using a home’s own water supply. For each gallon of water used, it pumps out two gallons. They are fully automatic, self-running devices. Don’t let your basement get flooded due to a malfunctioning electric sump pump or power failure.
