What Are Sump Pumps?
Think of a sump pump as a device in charge of moving any excess water from your basement to the outside of your home. A sump is a naturally formed pit, typically in the form of a hole dug beneath the surface of your basement floor.
The sump pump is kept in this basin-shaped pit. The pump has valves that can detect rising water pressure or level. Sump pumps automatically remove extra water from the basement and away from your property using a discharge pipe when the water level becomes too high and provide you with additional foundation support. A specified drainage area is connected to the sump pump by a line known as an effluent.
Your sump pump’s water should be directed to a specific location, like a dry well, a creek, a pond, or a nearby drain. A drain point should not be placed where water will return to your house. Keep the dog at least 10 to 20 feet away from the foundation. It is best to verify with your local government, as some places have building laws that restrict where your sump pump can discharge.
Remember that you might need to add drainage pipe and boost the sump pump’s horsepower to make the difference.
When Should You Install A Sump Pump?
You may require a sump pump installation if:
- In the past, your basement has flooded and now you are looking for water damage prevention.
- You reside on a property that is either low-lying or has water-retention soil.
- Each year, there is a lot of snow or rain in your location.
- Your sump pump is older than six years.
- You want to safeguard the finished basement you invested in.
- It is time to look for sump pumps if any of the situations above apply to you.

- Keeps basement from being flooded
- Reduces humidity levels, which enhances the quality of indoor air
The Different Types Of Sump Pumps
Submersible sump pump installation
The pump and motor are combined into one unit in submersible pumps. They’re sealed inside a basin in your basement, submerged. Submersible pumps are frequently quieter, take up less room in your basement, and clog less often than pedestal pumps because they are immersed in the water basin.
They might last less time than other sump pumps because of the impact of being submerged in water. However, this one is still the best choice for houses with serious flooding problems. For best results combine it with french drain installation.
Pedestal sump pump installation
The pump releases water into your chosen drain area through the hose. Because it is not submerged, the motor frequently outlasts other sump pumps and is simpler to access for maintenance needs. However, it can also be larger and noisier than the submersible pump.
Battery-operated sump pump installation
An excellent method to add some additional protection against flood damage is with a battery backup sump pump. Thanks to a battery backup with a float switch, your sump pump may run even when your power is down during a storm when you need it most. This is because the primary source of electricity for the pump also goes out with the management. When the basin’s water level rises, the float switch is activated, starting your battery’s activity. Even a little bit of moisture left can give you tons of mold problems that would require professional mold removal.
How Does A Sump Pump Work?
Rising water levels that trip the switch cause the pump to start pumping water into a discharge pipe away from the house’s foundation. Water, batteries, or electricity can all be used to power pumps. Even though backup pumps are frequently included in sump pump systems, they are commonly powered by batteries or water in the event of a power outage. Primary pumps are typically connected.
Reasons To Install Sump Pumps In Homes
A homeowner’s worst nightmare is indeed excessive water in their homes. Moisture damage can start as something minor but quickly become an extremely costly dilemma. It can depreciate your property’s value as well.
A good sump pump installation can help provide major defense against such damages and will give you an all round water damage cleaning. Not only is it protecting your home, but with adequate installation of a sump pump, expect the protection to last you decades.

5 Star Google & Home Advisor Reviews
I received a few quotes to get the walls in my home filled in with blown in insulation. Zavza Seal was affordable and they did an excellent job.
They were very concerned with cleaning up, which I appreciated. I felt the difference in my home immediately. No more freezing cold walls. I recommend them, hands down.
Our experience with Zavza Seal was wonderful and smooth. The crew is well organized. They listen to your plans. They showed out in time. They left everything clean. They did an amazing job! I highly recommend this company.
Efficient, courteous and responsible workers. The job was quoted as being completed in 2 days but more work was required and they returned on the 3rd day and completed the job without additional charges. They reinsulated my crawlspace (not an easy job). I recommend Zavza Seal without reservation.
Couldn’t be more satisfied with the job Zavza Seal did. Brendan and Jake were accommodating, fair and extremely knowledgeable. Their team worked incredibly hard that day under difficult conditions and did a great job. I manage a multi-unit HOA and we will definitely be using them again.
