What are the benefits of a sump pump?

Thorough Flooding Protection

A sump pump is installed to protect low-lying areas of your house from excess water, so flood protection might seem like an obvious benefit. What’s not so obvious are the secondary benefits of preventing that water damage.

Installing a sump pump can be considered a preventative measure to avoid all of the following:

  • Destroyed basements
  • Pest and vermin infestations
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Damaged foundation
  • Costly repairs caused by all of the above
Increased Property Value

No matter how nice the location is, the property value of any land can be lessened because it tends to flood. A properly-installed sump pump system will reassure potential buyers that their property will be protected from Mother Nature as best as possible.

Peace Of Mind

The average sump pump can get rid of a lot of water — most are capable of moving between 1,500-2,500 gallons per hour! There’s almost no way to put a price on the feeling of knowing that your home is equipped to deal with heavy rainfall season after season.
