What is a Sump Pump?

Many homes in the US currently have a sump pump system and it is a simple but mighty device when it comes to preventing flooding.

A Sump Pump is a device that is installed at the lowest point of your home.


The pump is not active at all times, only when needed. Excess water runs to the lowest point of your house, then the sump pump activates and removes the water up and out.



Is there a difference in pumps? Yes and No

They all have the same function but there are definitely better quality and higher tech ones. We always suggest your sump pump have a battery operated back up so in the case of a power outage your pump will still activate.


There are submersible and pedestal pumps.


Submersible pumps are underwater in your sump pump basement, pedestal pumps are put above


What other benefits do sump pumps have?

  • Protect your paint and flooring from peeling
  • Reduce mold and mildew growth
  • Safeguard any basement appliances
  • Keep a finished basement in tact
  • Meet requirement for home owners insurance coverage of a flooded basement


Do I need one?

We think it’s an important precaution to avoid flooding, which can be a much more expensive and stressful situation than being preventative.


98% of basements in the U.S will suffer from some type of water damage during their lifetime


If you live in a place where snow or rain occurs, you need it.

If your home is built on an area where you’re flood prone, you need it.

If you’ve ever had water problems in the past or your has flooded before, you need it.

If you have a finished basement, you need it!


(P.S) If you’re looking to buy a new home always take in consideration: any flooding issues, the age of the sump pump, and if the basement is already waterproofed.


Prevent! Prevent! Prevent!

Waterproofing your crawlspace or basement saves thousands of dollars less than recovering from a flood and can add those thousands to the value of your home when it’s time to sell.

Priceless Treasures

You can clean up a flooded basement and replace some of your stuff in storage but you can never get back family heirlooms and the memories that come with them. Always store in airtight waterproof storage and store them on shelving that comes off the ground. Waterproofing protects more than just your basement and can prevent these sentimental losses

Sump Pump Health


  • Take care of your sump pump and test every 3 months
  • Your sump pump lines can freeze too, follow same protocol as frozen pipe care
  • Sump pumps became popular in the U.S in the 1950’s so older homes may not have them
