How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Having a sump pump installed in your home is a great way to protect yourself from costly water damage. Whether that water comes from a broken pipe under your home, or storm flooding, having a system in place that works properly is the easiest way to have peace of mind.
A sump pump is often installed in basements or the lowest area of your home. When the water level reaches a certain point, they turn on and begin pumping water away from your home and into the storm drains outside. These systems generally come in two different variants:
- Pedestal Pump: This style of pump sits above your sump pit and is powered by an external motor. It has a small lever that goes into the pit, similar to the level in your toilet, and powers the sump pump on when the water reaches a certain level.
- Submersible Pumps: As the name would suggest, submersible pumps are actually submerged into your sump pit, measuring the water level at the base of your home. If it reaches a certain level, the pump activates, sending water to your storm drain.
Each sump pump style has its own benefits, but it’s important to work with sump pump contractors that understand your home. Depending on the water table around your property, certain sump pumps work better, so let our plumbers find the right one for you.
