A sump pump is one of the best lines of defense against a flooded basement. These deceptively simple systems prevent basement flooding by discharging water away from the home before it has a chance to flood the basement. If you don’t already have a sump pump or your existing one needs to be replaced, watch this short video to see how sump pumps are installed. If you are new to basement waterproofing, this video will also provide you with an overview of what sump pumps are and how they work.
If you want to keep your basement dry, contact a basement waterproofing provider in Baltimore and have a sump pump installed in your basement if you don’t already have one. And if your existing sump pump is more than 10 years old and in need of repair, consider having a new sump pump installed instead for greater peace of mind and confidence in the ability of your sump pump to prevent basement flooding. A basement waterproofing contractor can also inspect your existing sump pump if you aren’t sure whether you need a new one and make a recommendation based on its condition and other basement flooding risk factors.
