A sump pump serves one primary goal: collecting groundwater before it becomes a threat to your home. In Georgia, heavy rainstorms are frequent visitors and leave many homeowners susceptible to basement flooding. When installed correctly, a sump pump can give you peace of mind as it redirects water away from you home, ensuring your basement or crawlspace is dry and protected.
With reliable and efficient waterproofing services from AquaGuard Foundation Solutions, a dry, usable basement or crawl space is just six steps away! Interested in learning more? Call us today to receive your free inspection and complimentary quote!
What is a Sump Pump and What Does it Do?
Your sump pump is your first line of defense against crawl space or basement flooding—an essential part of every home’s waterproofing system. Sump pumps are typically installed in the lowest part of your basement or crawl space in what is called a sump pit. The sump pit is a hole that captures water as it flows from other drains or the natural ground slope. As the pit fills, it triggers the sump pump to begin pumping water out and away from your home through a discharge line. This whole process happens automatically, so there’s no need to adjust your pump every time there’s a heavy storm. To give you even more peace of mind, AquaGuard offers battery backups and alarms to ensure your sump pump works when you need it most.
A sump pump is installed underneath the floor of a basement or crawl space. Its primary purpose is to collect groundwater before it becomes a threat to your home.
Why the sump pump is an essential part of your waterproofing system.
- Prevents flooding due to rainwater and sewage backups
- Acts as a backup when gutter systems and other waterproofing measures fail to prevent water from entering your basement or crawl space
- Protects against mold growth, wood rot, electrical hazards, and other risks flooding can present
- Helps regulate indoor humidity levels
