What is a Sump Pump?
This equipment is geared toward helping homeowners protect their basements or crawlspace from flooding. When set up correctly, sump pumps sit in a basin or hole and work by removing water before it leads to damage.
Sump pumps get activated as water levels rise to a certain height. With activation, the pump pulls water from the basin or hole and redirects it away from your home. The two main kinds of pumps include pedestal style and submersible.
Installing a sump pump is an excellent idea when your home sees occasional flooding or the basement gets wet. Our Westview Plumbing team is happy to inspect your home’s lowest level to determine which unit will provide you with the best possible results.
- Submersible – These units can be pricier than a pedestal unit, but they remove water faster and are usually more reliable.
- Pedestal – These pumps rest on top of your pit or basin while a submersible design gets placed inside.
If you are unsure which option suits your home, one of our experienced plumbing contractors can help you select the best version for your needs.
