Sump pumps are a critical element of the plumbing system in many homes and businesses. A sump pump is used to ensure that a basement does not flood due to heavy rainfall or standing groundwater.
At Waller Plumbing, our professional plumbers can ensure that your sump pump continues to operate at maximum efficiency. We’re also available weekends and evenings for emergencies.
Why Sump Pumps Are Important
A sump pump is vital for homes and businesses with a basement. Depending on the ground where your building is located, a buildup of groundwater may be a common occurrence after heavy rain or seasonal storms. Without a sump pump, water could easily flood the basement and cause long term damage.
When the water table around your home rises and creeps into the basement, sensors on the pump trip the switch and the pump will push the water out to an area where it is not going to cause any problems. Most systems can drain out water to a municipal drain pipe or similar system. Sump pumps prevent countless dollars of water damage.
