Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump is a device that is installed to remove water that has collected in your basement or crawlspace. They are used in homes where flooding happens frequently or where the water table is above the home’s foundation. The sump pump collects group water and directs it away from the house which will help avoid flooding and excess moisture in the crawlspace. Sump pumps should always be installed in homes that are located in a flood zone.

Sump Pump Benefits

Prevents flooding

A sump pump’s primary job is to redirect water that is accumulating in the ground below your home. During intense rainfall sump pumps will collect the water saturating the ground and pump it away from your house to avoid flooding in your basement or crawlspace.

Increase fire safety

Flooding is the number one cause of electrical fires in residential properties. Water that has seeped inside electrical systems can cause short circuits which then can cause a fire. Having a sump pump installed to avoid potential floods can also save your home from the risk of a house fire.

The Sump Pump Installation Process

Sump pumps are installed to collect excess water and direct it away from your home. The sump pump installation process includes:

Select a Location

As part of your consultation, our certified inspector will identify the best place to install the sump pump (it is typically installed where the majority of water collects).

Dig a Hole

A technician will dig a hole that will be large enough to fit the sump pump as well as the gravel that will need to be placed around and underneath it.

Install the sump pump

The technician will then pour the gravel, put the sump pump into position, connect a check valve and cover the sump.

Direct Water Away from Home

The technician will then install PVC pipes to help channel the water away from the pump and outside of the house.

BEN and their AMAZING CREW saved OUR HOUSE!!! Nightmare scenario - Google Fiber's contractor hit our main water line with a backhoe during their network install. After a year of denying the damages (which occurred on private property - a whole other saga), their insurance adjuster finally agreed to repair/replace our water line.
