Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump is one of the most easy and effective ways to keep your basement dry, and protect it against floods in the case of high water retention. At Wet Basement Resolutions we install high grade sump pumps accurately and effectively, so that the water is controlled to the maximum, and never causes a problem in your basement.

Why You Might You Need Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps are a specialized bit of kit that prevent floods and water damage in a house that is prone to problems. You would probably never get a sump pump if your house does not experience these problems, but if you need one then they offer a vital solution to the problem, and pump the water outside.

What Is Sump Pump Installation?

Pump sump installation is a service that we provide that prevents floods, and helps to keep basements that are prone to severe damp problems dry. A top quality sump pump is installed, along with a sump pit, and drainage system, which collects the water ready to be pumped outside. The concept is pretty simple, but the work demands a technical approach and professional equipment in order for it to be effective.

Sump Pump Installation Method

Installing a pump sump requires a sump pit, which protects the pump from debris and mud. The pump sits either below the ground, or around ground level. We position them at the lowest spot on your basement floor, so that the water naturally channels that way. We also construct a drainage system that channels that water towards the pump.

When installing a sump pump, it is important to use a submersible pump, air tight lid, catch basin (liner), and check valve. Each component is as crucial as the next. A submersible pump is important because it allows for the installation of an air tight lid; the sump pump should not be put on the liner floor, it should be raised using a brick or small block as this keeps the pump off the liner floor and keeps the sump pump from sucking in dirt and increases the longevity of the pump

We install the pump, and make it airtight, and then integrate it into your basement. We can offer the sump pump installation as an individual treatment, or in combination with other basement waterproofing services.

An air tight lid is important because it keeps the stagnant water sitting in the liner to not be exposed to the air. Without a lid, the stagnant water will create moisture in the basement eventually allowing mold to grow, as well as creating moisture in the wood and over time rotting it out. A catch basin or liner is important because it holds the water and creates a barrier between the concrete. A air tight lid cannot be installed without the liner.

Checking the discharge line is important because it prevents back flow. Water that is discharged will be blocked from re-entering the liner and this will keep your sump pump only working when it has to, extending the longevity of the mechanical parts of the sump pump.
