A broken sump pump can mean some serious bad news during a storm. Water accumulating in your basement or crawl space can quickly translate into costly damages and a homeowner’s nightmare. Micro Plumbing of Omaha offers year-round sump pump repair services (as well as sump pump maintenance) to help protect your home from unexpected water damages.
What’s a sump pump?
Succinctly, a sump pump is a device that drains water out of your basement or home.
Many basements and below-home crawl spaces have a sump pit installed at the very lowest elevation in the structure. Precipitation causes water surrounding the home to infiltrate the foundation, and make its way into your basement. This groundwater will funnel into a perimeter drain system installed in the base of your foundation, and accumulate in your sump pit.
When the water inside your sump pit reaches a certain level, a sump pump will activate. The sump pump removes the water from your basement or crawl space, and pumps the water to a nearby well or storm drain.
If your sump pump isn’t functioning properly, however, it may lead to a flooded basement or crawl space. To prevent disastrous flooding and water damage, sump pump repair and maintenance should be scheduled regularly.
