If you have a basement, chances are you either have a sump pump or need to have one installed because it is one of the most important parts to your basement waterproofing system. If you do have a sump pump that does not seem to be working properly, it may be time to replace it. If your basement is susceptible to flooding, then keeping this major basement or crawl space appliance in working properly so that it keeps the water out and away from below your home.
Sump Pump Problems
If your sump pump is not working properly the base of your home could possibly flood when it rains or when melting snow from your lawn goes into your basement. It can cause serious damage to your walls, floors, as well as the different items you keep in there. And, it’s always a good idea to have a battery backup for your sump pump should there be an outage.
