If you’re a homeowner, you know that rain can cause problems you’d never expect. Getting familiar with your equipment is a must – and knowing who to call for a professional solution is easy!

If your basement isn’t equipped with a sump pump, you may want to invest in one as an insurance step in case of rain drain failure. Should your rain drain pipe develop a clog during a storm, a sump pump will eliminate water from this area and help keep whatever possessions you may have in this part of your home safe. It can also help prevent damage to your home and save you expensive damages. A ProSolutions technician can tell you much more about how a sump pump works and help you choose the model that is right for your needs.

The primary function of a sump pump is to drain excess water from unwanted areas, like your home’s basement! Without a fully functioning sump pump, danger lurks during a rainstorm or when the snow melts in the spring. After a harsh winter, basement flooding is the last thing you need to find when the weather warms. It’s common sense for any basement or low-level structure to have a functioning sump pump.

Causes of Basement Flooding

  • Improper weatherproofing
  • Extreme weather conditions
  • Excessive groundwater flooding from rain or snow melting!
  • Improperly sized or installed sump pump
  • Poorly installed basement bathrooms
  • Ground water seepage
  • Damaged or leaking water heater

Think of a sump pump as the bucket in a life raft. As the water comes in, it’s vital that it be removed. Once enough water fills a catch basin, the pump is activated propelling the water outside away from your house. This will leave your basement dry and safe and keep you worry-free.
