Sump Pump Frequently Asked Questions
At JPG Plumbing & Mechanical, we often get questions about sump pumps and why they’re needed. Here are some of those questions and answers from our experienced team.
How Does Water Get Into the Basement?
Water can get into your basement in one of three ways. First, if your home sits on a high water table, water can seep in through cracks in the foundation. Second, water can accumulate around the walls of your basement when it rains. Third, water can enter the basement if you have a pipe burst. A sump pump can help with all of these.
How Does a Sump Pump Work?
Sump pumps have a pit that is dug into the lowest point of your basement. A pump sits inside that pit. If water starts to enter the basement, it starts in the pit, activating the pump. The pump forces water outside of the home through a drain.
Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?
If you live in an area with high water tables, a sump pump is a wise idea. If you hear of neighbors having trouble with their basements or crawl spaces flooding, you have another reason to consider a sump pump. All it takes is one heavy rain for your basement or crawl space to flood. With a sump pump, you will have a system in place to pump that water out and protect your home.
Just because you’ve never had a basement flood doesn’t mean you don’t need a sump pump. It is a fairly affordable protection for your home because floods can happen without warning, even in properties that have never had a problem before.
