Homes with inadequate drainage, or those that are located in a low-water table are prone to regular flooding. This is especially true following a heavy rainfall. The accumulation of water can lead to significant damage to the home's foundation and can also lead to the growth of hazardous bacteria and mold.
Having a sump pump properly installed by Zeek's Plumbing is the ideal way to keep your home dry and to assist with the appropriate drainage of your residence. Sump pumps also help to lower hydrostatic pressure around your residence. To put it in basic terms, the accumulation of moisture in the soil surrounding your home creates pressure that pushes the water through the smallest of cracks in your foundation.
If the soil around your property is especially rich in clay, it is likely to be slower to drain water away. In order to avoid the buildup of water in the ground around your foundation, a sump basin may be needed to collect the surplus water. A system of this kind is also helpful in preventing infiltration of radon gas into your home.
A sump pump will only protect your property from flooding as long as the supply of electricity that powers the motor remains uninterrupted. If a serious rainstorm triggers a power failure, your property could be as susceptible to water damage as if you didn't have a sump pump whatsoever. For that reason, we often advise including a backup power supply source to any new sump pump installation. This way, should a power failure occur or a fuse get blown, your sump pump will still be ready to take on whatever comes.
