Calgary Plumbing – Sump Pumps Prevent Basement Flooding

Posted at September 11, 2013 | By : | Categories : Plumber | Comments Off on Calgary Plumbing – Sump Pumps Prevent Basement Flooding

Installing a sump pump at your Calgary home or workplace will avert flooding issues and save you a whole lot of renovation expenses in addition to granting you peace of mind. A sump pump is the easiest and least expensive way to tackle the flooding problems you may be facing. Usually sump pumps are positioned in the lower parts of the basement where water first begins to collect when leakage and flooding occur.

The installation of sump pumps is fairly easy during renovations and when completed correctly, the pumps will function effectively for many years without having to be replaced. Sump pumps are designed to begin working if the water level should rise to a high level. Most of the pumps will have a sensor and float lever within them that rises along with the water level. When the water levels become high, the pump is triggered to ensure no overflow occurs and works to bring down the water level.

Sump pumps are set below ground level in wells and pits and are sealed tightly to protect the electrical components from water damage. The price and noise levels of sump pumps vary; in general pedestal sump pumps are less expensive than submersible pumps. Pedestal pumps also happen to be less noisy than other types of pumps.

If your basement is prone to flooding, the installation of this device could save you thousands of dollars in renovation and extra expenses incurred by water damage. Clear View Plumbing recommends that every homeowner install a sump pump in their basement. You will sleep better knowing that whether you leave your home for work or go on a long vacation, the sump pump will work to reduce the risk of flooding.
