What is a sump pump?
A sump pump is a small pump that is generally installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawl space. The pump is often installed in specially constructed sump pits. Sump pits are found in the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace. A sump pump helps keep the area under a building dry and prevents it from flooding.
How does a sump pump work?
There are two ways that water flows into a sump pump.
- Through drains
- Natural migration through the soil
Once the water reaches the sump pit, the sump pump is there to pump the water out of the pit and away from the property. The sump pump ensures that the building or crawl space stays dry.
Sump Pumps are important in Vancouver
In the past, sump pumps were not required and were generally installed in places known for rapid melting of heavy snow. Today however, sump pumps are common in many new construction buildings.
Vancouver and the Lower mainland are known for heavy rain conditions. Installing a sump pump on your property will prevent flooding and damage to your property.
Keep in mind, it does not take much water to cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your property. Planning ahead by installing a sump pump can prevent this problem from occurring.
Moisture in the basement causes mould and mildew growth, which can be hazardous to health and breathing.
