Sump Pumps

Do you have a basement that has a tendency to flood often, no matter how many times the plumbing is repaired, checked, and double checked? Chances are the plumbing is not to blame. For basements that are in extremely moist soil, the risk of seasonal flooding is always a possibility. As the water present in the ground surrounding a basement starts to oversaturate the soil, before water bubbles to the surface, it will first fill your basement space. While this problem can't be eradicated from the source, there is a lot you can do to work around the issue and keep your basement dry as possible. You need to install a sump pump system. Water will always follow the path of least resistance and that path usually leads into your basement. This is a job that should be handled by a licensed professional, not your average handyman. Here are just some of the tools needed to complete the job:

Materials Needed

  • Sledgehammer
  • Sump basin
  • Filtration materials
  • Gravel
  • Stone slate
  • Sump pump
  • Power drill and hole cutting attachment
  • PVC pipe
  • PVC pipe glue
  • Wall sealant
