Even a little bit of water in your basement or crawl space can do a lot of damage. In addition to potential structural damage, water often leads to mold and mildew. At DayNight Services, we’ve seen firsthand the damage that water can do to homes. That’s why we recommend sump pumps. Sump pumps act as your first line of defense when water starts to rise in your basement or crawl space, and they are an excellent investment for any homeowner.
Sump Pump Installation
When it comes to getting a new sump pump, you have a few options. Most are either classified as pedestal pumps – which sit about the sump pit – or submersible pumps – which are installed in the pit. Whichever option you choose, it will have a switch that is triggered as the result of basement flooding. When water enters the pit, it causes a float to rise and turn on the unit. The water pump then automatically removes the water from your basement.
Pedestal models are the most affordable and easiest to install, but submersibles are more efficient. We can help you choose the type of water pump that is best suited to your home.
