Protect Your Property with a Sump Pump

Heavy rains and rapid snowmelt can really do a number on your property, especially if the lowest points of your home are prone to flooding. Fortunately for you, we don’t live in a time when mops and buckets are our only defense against water damage and the type of damp conditions that can lead to the promotion of biological pollutants. With the help of a good sump pump in Virginia Beach, you can avoid flooding in the lower levels of your house.

Of course, there are a lot of “good” sump pumps out there. You also need to guarantee that your sump pump is the right fit for your home and your needs, though. That is why working with professional plumber is a must in order to guarantee that your sump pump is there for you when you need it most. 

We’ll Install the Right Sump Pump for Your Needs

There are two general types of sump pumps that may be used in order to remove water from your basement/lower level. The first is the submersible sump pump, and this is usually the preferred type of system. A submersible sump pump is, unsurprisingly, one that is fully submerged in the water within the sump pit. This is beneficial in that there is little noise from the pump. The water surrounding and covering the pump can actually help to cool the motor as well, which can protect its operation, particularly during periods of prolonged use.

In narrower or shallow sump pits, a pedestal sump pump may be the better option. They take up less space in the pit, as the motor is exposed due to the pump’s placement on a pedestal. Because of the exposed motor, the pedestal style of sump pump is a louder option. Whichever type of sump pump you use, you need to know that it will be able to handle the volume of water that you can expect to enter your home in flooding conditions, and the pump must be well-maintained. Working with us guarantees this to be the case.
