We’re now in the thick of summer, which means thunderstorm season is here too, bringing with it the possibility of flooding all across the state in one fell swoop. Of course, it is all the more reason to call out a plumber for an ejector pump and sump pump installation in your basement if you have not done so. Without a sump or ejector sump, flooding can lead to severe, permanent water damage within your basement that could lead to pricey remodeling. Even worse, if you still have a bathroom in your basement, you run the risk of raw sewage leaking in your basement once the flooding starts. To save yourself from dangerous and unsanitary conditions, call an Alpha Plumbing plumber to install your sump pump. Read on to learn more!
Why Call a Professional Sump Pump Installation?
If you think you will be absolutely okay this summer or fall without a proper pump installation, that is an incredibly risky move you will regret. Here are three reasons to call us!
Durable Protection from Floods
A sump pump is your first and best line of defense against basement flooding. It works by actively pumping water out of a designated spot, and away from your house. Even with the installation cost, a sump pump could save you a bunch of money on future water damages. It’ll also help increase the value of your house.
Improved Overall Health with a Sump Pump Installation
Your basement doesn’t have to be flooded to impose a severe health or safety risk. A small bit of dampness can be a massive threat to you and your family. A wet atmosphere is an ideal home for mold and mildew growth. Sump pumps help by regulating the humidity inside your basement. With less humidity, the less you have to worry about harmful bacteria working its way into your indoor air.
Raw Sewage Prevention
An ejector pump is unbelievably beneficial in keeping your basement sanitary during a flood. It can carry waste from your bathroom to the sewer line. Do be mindful of the things that you flush down your toilet. If you flush the wrong items down your toilet, it could lead to your ejector pump failing and causing raw sewage to leak.
