What is a sump pump?

And why do you need one

A sump pump is a waterproofing system that acts as your home’s first line of defense against basement flooding. Essentially a pump installed into the foundation of a home, a sump pump will remove water build-up in the foundation of a basement or crawl space by depositing it into a discharge line and expel the water away from the foundation. Many homeowners will also have a battery backup sump pump installed to keep their homes protected from flooding if the power goes out during a storm.

At Summit Basement Company, we recommend sump pump installation for anyone located in an area with a high water table or prone to flooding.

Fire Prevention

Flooding is a common cause of electrical fires. Whenever a basement floods out, appliances can short out, possibly leading to fires. Even if the flooding doesn’t cause a fire, your appliances may still be ruined.
