Having a wet basement or crawl-space is not just inconvenient, it can make your energy bills skyrocket and even lead to health problems. Get waterproofing services from Harry Caswell Plumbing, Mechanical and Utility Contractor to protect your Millsboro, DE area home.
What Is It?
Sump pumps are needed to protect your basement or crawl space from flooding. The water collects in sump basins or pits and gets carried away from your home through discharge pipes. A check valve would prevent the water from going back to the sump basin when the sump pump is not functioning.
The experienced technicians from Harry Caswell Plumbing, Mechanical and Contractor will consult with you when choosing a new sump pump for your basement or crawl space. We will consider the preferred type, the switch type, the capacity, etc. While your home might not struggle with dampness, if water needs to be lifted higher compared to the sump basin level, then you would need a more powerful sump pump to handle the difference. Our professionals will guide you through the decision-making process, planning, all the way through installation to ensure you understand what you’re getting.
Avoid Serious Damage to Your Home
Maintenance of sump pumps is recommended at least once per year or more often depending on certain factors. This involves checking the pumps and the basin for damage, as well as cleaning out any debris. This service could spare you the investment of purchasing a whole new one and prevent damage that could stem from flooding. Including serious structural damage to foundations and interior walls and floors, electrical damage and safety hazards, damage to your property, or potential health issues caused by the growth of mold and mildew.
