Sump pump installation near Baltimore is a crucial step toward total basement waterproofing. As you can see in the video, a sump pump will detect water in your basement and send it outside and away from the home.
You should check your sump pump regularly and provide maintenance for the sump pump and surrounding pit. To test if your pump is working, follow these three steps: First, remove the sump pump cover, and pour some water into the tank. Second, you should notice a “float” rising with the water—this will turn the pump on. Lastly, the water level should begin to lower until the “float” lowers and shuts the pump off.
