Installing A Sump Pump In Your Home

Getting a sump pump installed is the ideal way to keep your home dry and to assist with the proper drainage of your home. Sump pumps also help to reduce hydrostatic pressure around your home. To put it in simple terms, the buildup of moisture in the soil surrounding your home creates pressure that pushes the water through the tiniest of cracks in your foundation.

If the soil around your home is particularly rich in clay, it is likely to be slower to drain water away. In order to prevent the accumulation of water in the ground around your foundation, a sump basin may be needed to collect the surplus water. A system of this kind is also useful in preventing infiltration of radon gas into your home.
