When the temperatures in eastern Pennsylvania go from cold to warm in an instant or when heavy downpours plague the area, your home’s foundation could be at risk. Rapid temperature changes during the spring cause snow to melt. This often leads to serious flooding problems. When your basement floods, it’s more than an inconvenience. A single flood can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage and destroy things that can’t be replaced. Worse yet, flooding can cause serious damage to your foundation that you might not even notice.
By investing in a sump pump, you can protect your home and family from this danger. Sump pumps are simple systems designed to automatically remove water from low-lying locations in your home, such as basements and crawl spaces. At Marshall Services, we recommend in installing and/or maintaining sump pumps to ensure that your basement starts dry.
A sump pump is your best defense against basement and crawl space flooding. When properly installed and maintained, they’re always standing by waiting to remove excess water automatically. With most modern units, you won’t even have to worry about flooding during a power outage thanks to battery backups.
Sump pumps are submersible pumps designed to remove water from low-lying areas in homes. The pump is generally installed in a pit. When water collects in this pit, it raises a float switch which turns the pump on. As soon as the pump kicks on, it starts removing the water from your home via a drainage line.
