Keeping your crawl space dry is challenging, especially after a flood or storm has hit your area. Since this area is built below your property, locating and removing every inch of moisture is difficult if you’re using common drying techniques. In this kind of situation, you’ll need something more powerful than a mop and bucket. What you need is a sump pump in your crawl space.
A sump pump is a machine that draws water into its sump basin before draining it outside your home. It’s a fast and efficient system that eliminates floodwater from your basement, allowing your property to stay dry during any kind of weather. The sump pump also comes in two types: pedestal and submersible. The pedestal has the motor mounted above the sump and it’s designed for easy service. The submersible, on the other hand, has the motor sealed and located in the sump. It’s also inconspicuous.
If you think that your property will benefit from a sump pump, contact Mount Valley Foundation Services, so we can help you choose a sump pump system that’s right for you.
When purchasing a sump pump system, you need to consider the following factors to ensure that you get the perfect one:
- Head pressure
- Phase and voltage
- Power cord length
- Alarm and backup system
- Automatic or manual operation
- The type of water level sensing switch
