Sump Pumps for Spring Time!

Posted on: April 4, 2017

What do the words “spring time” bring to mind? Probably thoughts of warmer weather, blooming flowers, Easter eggs, and other cheerful imaginings as winter fades away. But spring time brings with it some disadvantages as well, such as unpredictable turns in the weather, allergies, and rainfall.

It’s the rainfall we want to look at today, because spring is the season of year when your home is at the highest danger for flooding damage. Rainstorms and snowmelt can mean torrents of water entering into your basement or crawlspace, ruining building material and personal possessions and creating high moisture levels that encourage the growth of mold and mildew.

The best tool you have against spring flooding is a professionally installed sump pump in Durham, NC.

If you don’t have a sump pump…

…then it’s definitely time to have one installed. It’s not a difficult task for professional plumbers, and once the job is done you’ll have many years of extra protection for your household. A skilled plumber will find out the best place in your house to place the pump; the right location is where water naturally flows so it can be collected and pumped out. The plumber will excavate a pit for water collection—this is the actual sump of the name sump pump—and then install the type of pump to provide the most reliable service. There are two common sump pump types, pedestal and submersible, and with the right professional on the job you can rest easy you’ll end up with the right one.

If you already have a sump pump…

…make sure it’s in good working shape before the spring rain strikes. Test it by pouring a few gallons of water into the sump to see if the pump turns on automatically and fully removes the water. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to have professionals look over it to see where it may need plumbing repairs.

No matter what sump pump services you need, rely on our trained and experienced plumbers for the job.
