How Do Sump Pumps Work?

Sump pumps are fairly simple in both design and function. The units are installed below the foundation in the basement and are housed in a reservoir unit called a “sump tank”. As the ground around your home is saturated, the water is directed into this tank as it saturates. Once the water hits a certain level, a switch on the pump is flipped and the water is then pumped safely away from your home and its foundation.

This very simple plumbing component is vital to the long-term structural integrity of certain buildings in flood-prone areas. Few things are as destructive to the foundation of a home as uncontrolled water damage, and a sump pump is one of the most simple yet effective methods of erosion prevention.

Do I Need A Sump Pump?

Not everyone needs a sump pump. In fact, there are areas of the country where basements and subsurface crawlspaces are far less common, making them a seldom used plumbing utility. Here in California however, basements are fairly commonplace. In addition, our proximity to the ocean and rainfall in certain areas makes us a prime environment for high levels of ground saturation. Your home may require a sump pump if:

  • You have a basement that is prone to flooding.
  • You live in an area with higher a higher than average amount of rainfall
  • Your home is located in a low-lying area

These factors combine to drive a thriving sump pump market in California. With these pumps being so necessary, it is important to seek out the most qualified professionals when investing in flooding solutions. The plumbers here at After Hour Plumbing & Drain are fully qualified to assess your specific situation and provide the best sump pump solution possible.
