Sump Pump Benefits
Your home is an incredibly valuable component of your life, which makes protecting it important. Your sump pump provides essential protection against disaster. In your basement or crawlspace, you’ll find a small pump installed. The job of the sump pump is to ensure your basement or crawlspace stays dry and doesn’t flood.
When your sump pump is working properly, it will pump water away from your home and keep the area dry. It’s important to have a properly working sump pump because not only does it prevent flooding, but it can also prevent mold and mildew growth by keeping the area dry. Mold and mildew growth can pose serious health problems if not controlled.
Sump pumps are required in most areas and are included in most new home construction. If your home doesn’t have one, and you would like one installed, Blue River Plumbing & Heating can help.
Submersible vs. Pedestal Sump Pumps
When you’re having a new sump pump installed, you’ll need to decide which model is best for your home. Our technicians will take the time to help you understand the differences and make the decision that’s best for you.
There are two primary types of sump pumps:
- Submersible - Submersible pumps are installed into a sump pump basin underwater. This type of pump is quieter and can be more expensive, but they will tend to last longer than pedestal models. Some homeowners prefer this type because it is hidden.
- Pedestal - Pedestal pumps are less expensive, but can also be noisier and have a tendency to sometimes overheat. These pumps sit above the basin and have an impeller that measures water levels inside the pit.
Choosing the right model for your home can depend on your budget, basement design, and needs. Not every home has a large enough sump pit for submersible models, so working with an experienced plumber is essential.
When disaster strikes, you can count on our plumbers for help. We offer 24/7 emergency services throughout the Castle Rock area.
