Rainy days can bring the worst plumbing disasters. especially if you have a spacious basement or crawl space. Excessive amounts of rainwater or flood water easily can seep into your home through the drain. If the water has nowhere to go, it will likely end up in your basement.
So how can you avoid this potential disaster? The most effective method to combat flooding is to install a sump pump. A sump pump is a device which is installed in the lowest part of the basement. Its job is to keep the area under your home dry, pumping water out and away from the foundation of your home. It’s an appliance with a high return on investment. Flooding and water damage can be extremely expensive to repair.
Benefits of installing a Sump Pump include:
Preventing the peeling of paint.
If damp areas are left untreated, paint and walls begin to peel and decay.
Preventing the growth of algae in the basement.
Moisture promotes the growth of algae, which can attract unwanted insects and bacteria.

Low maintenance with easy handling.
A sump pump is safe and easy to operate, even by children. It’s covered design means that the machine makes little to zero noise.
