How water Floods a Basement or Crawl Space:
There are many ways for water to enter your basement or crawl space, and flooding is most often caused by water build up in the soil that makes its way inside. There are many ways to prevent water entering and a sump pump is a last defense against flooding. Sump pumps pump water out from the lowest section of the basement before the water level reaches the basement floor level. As groundwater level rises it is diverted into the sump hole. When the water reaches what is called ‘the critical level’, the sump pump begins to pump it out through a pipe that leads outside and away from your foundation.
The Importance of a Sump Pump:
The sump pump has recently become more important especially in newer homes since the Federal Clean Water Act which doesn’t allow builders in many municipalities to drain rainwater collected by gutters into sewerage systems. Water collected on the roof of your home and drained by your gutters can cause flooding if it is not carried far enough away from your home’s foundation.
Checking your sump pump:
It is important to check your sump pump regularly to make sure that it is working properly.
