What Is a Sump Pump?
This is a system designed to prevent an area from flooding. The sump pump works by pumping out any water that flows into it. During sump pump installation, a pit is dug at the lowest point of the area that needs protection—so, your basement if you have one in your home. All water that flows into the basement will then naturally flow into the pit, which is what is referred to as the "sump."
Once the sump is dug, the pump is either installed right inside of it or just above it. There is a pipe that runs from the sump pump out of the house, giving the excess water somewhere to go. After the pump is installed, it’s hooked up to the home’s electrical grid, which allows it to sense when water needs to be pumped out.
Why Should You Consider Sump Pump Installation?
Repairing water damage is a hassle, which probably goes without saying. It’s also expensive. Especially when you consider that most of the time, the only way to really "repair" flooding damage is by throwing out anything that’s become too waterlogged and is at risk of mold development. That alone can amount to quite a lot in monetary loss.
Your sump pump protects against all this by removing the water before it has a chance to build up. It won’t protect you against catastrophic flooding, but if your home experiences that much water flowing into it then your basement is probably not going to be much of a concern. The point of a sump pump is to prevent parts of your Central Valley home from being affected by moderate flooding.
