Priority Plumbing – Sump Pumps Prevent Basement Flooding

Prevention is key to disaster avoidance – especially in Toronto plumbing & waterproofing. When taking on the challenge of protecting your home from flooding in the future, a great and affordable option is to install a sump pump. A sump pump is installed below ground and into a sump-basin and is sealed tightly to protect the electrical components from water damage.

There are two types of sump pumps – submersible and pedestal and consulting with a trained professional will help you pick the best option to protect your home. 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.

The installation of sump pumps is fairly easy during the renovation stage 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.

A sump pump is the easiest and least expensive way to tackle the flooding problems you may be facing. If your basement is prone to flooding, the installation of this devise could save you thousands of dollars in renovation and extra expenses incurred by water damage.
