A flooded basement or standing water under a home can be frustrating and overwhelming for any homeowner. After heavy rains or excess moisture, water can penetrate into the basement and cause additional damage to the foundation and other items. Installing a sump pump, in addition to other drainage correction, DC Solutions can solve this problem and prevent future water damage to your home.
Sump Pumps are used to removed excess water from a basement or crawl space. Water that is collected from the drainage system flows into the sump pump basin. As the basin fills, a float automatically triggers and discharges accumulated ground water into a discharge line and deposits it out to the appropriate drainage field. A sump pump is your last line of defense when preventing water from entering your basement or crawl space.
When to choose a Sump Pump Installation:
- You live in an area that has frequent moisture (rain/snow)
- Your basement has flooded in the past
- Your house is on a flat lot or low-lying area (below the water table)
- You have a finished basement
