Flooding In Your Home
Homes with inadequate drainage, or those that are located in a low-water table are prone to frequent flooding. This is particularly true following a heavy rainfall. The buildup of water can result in serious damage to the home’s structure and can also lead to the growth of harmful bacteria and mold.
Installing A Sump Pump In Your Home
Getting a sump pump professionally installed by Baker Brothers Plumbing & Air Conditioning is the ideal way to keep your home dry and to assist with the proper drainage of your home. Sump pumps also help to reduce hydrostatic pressure around your home. To put it in simple terms, the buildup of moisture in the soil surrounding your home creates pressure that pushes the water through the tiniest of cracks in your foundation.
If the soil around your home is particularly rich in clay, it is likely to be slower to drain water away. In order to prevent the accumulation of water in the ground around your foundation, a sump basin may be needed to collect the surplus water. A system of this kind is also useful in preventing infiltration of radon gas into your home.
Adding A Power Backup
A sump pump will only protect your home from flooding as long as the supply of electricity that powers the motor remains uninterrupted. If a severe rainstorm causes a power outage, your home could be as vulnerable to water damage as if you didn’t have a sump pump at all. For that reason, we often recommend adding a backup power supply source to any new sump pump installation. That way, should a power failure occur or a fuse get blown, your sump pump will still be ready to handle whatever comes.
