Sump Pumps: The Key to Flood-Proofing Your Home

You’re likely familiar with the purpose of a sump pump: to keep a home’s basement dry. But how does it work? And what else is worth knowing about sump pumps? Monroe Home Solutions is here to answer your questions!

How Sump Pumps Work

A sump pump sits within a naturally constructed pit carved below your basement’s floor. This pit is referred to as a basin or “sump.” During heavy rains, the pump’s valves detect rising water levels in the sump area. When the water reaches a certain level, the sump pump directs the excess water out of the basement via a discharge line. The water is then deposited into a drainage area that’s located a safe distance from your home’s foundation. This drain point can be a nearby creek or a neighborhood drain.

A dry basement not only protects your belongings and home from water damage, which can lead to costly repairs. It also prevents mold growth due to extra moisture. That way, you and your family can stay healthy in your home and avoid upper respiratory infections, as well as asthma and allergy symptoms.
