What Is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a solution to basement flooding and leaking. Their function is to remove water from places like basements and crawl spaces. A sump pump is exactly what it sounds like - a pump. This pump is installed at the lowest point of your basement or crawlspace. Any water that collects around your home’s foundation is funneled into drainpipes where it is sucked into a sump pit.
If you live in a climate that is moist, humid, or sees heavy rain, a sump pump is an important investment to prevent flooding, water damage, and other unfavorable effects to your home. Many people consider sump pump installation as 60% of homes in the US have underground water moisture issues. Don’t pay expensive flood repairs, consider installing a sump pump and call Cooper’s Plumbing & Air today!
