Sump Pumps
Installing Sumps Keeps Homes Dry

When it comes to preventing in-home flooding, sump pumps are the best way to remove water from the home and keep the lower floor levels dry and free from water damage. Those, who live in flood prone areas, are aware that their basements can quickly go from a storage or living space to a flooded mess. This is usually because of two potential problems: a blocked external drainage system which forces blocked water into the home's foundation, or a cracked and leaking foundation itself which allows water to seep in from the ground surrounding the basement.

Interesting Installation Info About Sump Pumps:

The process of sump installation can be quite labor intensive and, while many homeowners might endeavor to take the project on themselves, it simply is not feasible for the vast majority of homeowners. Installing sump pumps requires breaking into the home's foundation and digging down at least 30 inches below the current foundation of the home. That alone can be quite labor intensive and intimidating for many homeowners.

First and foremost, digging into the home's foundation can present a variety of obstacles, not the least of which, is that the homeowner might dig into (and damage) their own sewer and drainage lines. Remember, these components are often placed below the foundation for a variety of reasons. Secondly, homeowners will eventually have to create a path for the water itself to be drained outside the home. Without the right kind of planning and technical know-how, many individuals will find that they simply drain water outside and into an area where it easily comes back into the home. This defeats the purpose of the pump installation altogether.

Another issue that many less-informed homeowners have to tackle is which sump pump to purchase and to install in their basement in order to prevent flooding. Some homes require less powerful pumps because the pump does not need to remove as much water. While other homes require a fully-loaded, powerful, water-moving machine. Getting the wrong pump can be a disaster and a poor investment, costing even more in damaged furniture, belongings, and memories.

Contracting with a skilled plumber-such as, R. G. White HVAC and Plumbing--can help eliminate these problems, making sure the pump chosen is sized for the flooded area, the type of pooling that occurs (regular versus occasional), and has the right amount of electric power to keep operating during emergency situations. Furthermore, a skilled contractor will know best where to place the pump (as it relates to water levels) and where to place the drainage system that will remove the water from your home.

And, of course, because R. G. White HVAC & Plumbing technicians are skilled in plumbing, we will be able to install the drainage system with the proper plumbing skills. This ensures that the system will hold up for the long-term, and it will be installed for optimal water drainage should water enter the home. This attention to detail ensures the integrity of the home's foundation and/or basement, preventing future flooding.
