April Showers Bring May Flowers, Right?

While you may be finally happy to see that snow melt away and your grass return to that beautiful shade of green, the aftermath of these events - flooding - is anything but desirable.

The fact of the matter is that about 95% of homes will experience basement water damage, especially at high time of rainfall. In order to protect your basement from becoming a waterhole, you should get yourself a sump pump.

How to Choose Your Sump Pump

There are a number of different sump pump features that will help you choose the best one for your home:

They can be used in a crawl space or a basement.
There are two main types of pumps you can pick: submersible and pedestal
You can have single power, dual power, and a water fed backup.
Pumps come in three different power standards: 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4.



Alarm System

Different Parts of Your Sump Pump

If you remain upstairs during a potential flood, you may not know that your sump pump hasn't come on. That's where these alarms come in handy. They will sound if the pump has not gone on when it should of.

Pump Stands

Lids are an important feature because they keep moisture and odors from getting into your air. In addition, these airtight lids are great for protecting your system from debris falling into your system.

Discharge Line Protection

The discharge line is how the water flows from the pump to the outside. If it gets frozen during those cold winter months, you will end up dealing with a backed up basement. With discharge line protection, you can be sure that even if the underground pipe freezes, water will still be pumped outside no problem!

Sump Liner

Sump liners serve three main purposes: To keep the pump from failing prematurely, to ensure that it doesn't cycle on and off too frequently, and to make sure it is always working properly.

Stands are used to keep the pump off of the liner. They also serve to prevent any built up silt at the bottom of the pit from getting into your sump pump.
