Because of the inclement weather affecting the greater Toronto area all year round, it is important for all homes and businesses to consider sump pump installation and maintenance to prevent the possibility of flooding that stems from melting snow and large amounts of rain.
If you are looking for the best way to prevent your house from flooding, our team of plumbers has the experience, knowledge, and training you require. Also, we can assist you with adequate guidance for installing a submersible pump to avoid panic situations if you live in a flood zone or if there is a chance that groundwater will rise in cellars or basements. Contact us today and find out how we can help you best regarding the sump pump installation, sewage ejector pump installation and prevention of basement flooding in Toronto.
A sump pump is a type of pump that helps transfer the water accumulating in your home or office’s basement to the outside. It is usually placed within a hole or pit which has been dug below the level of the surface of the basement’s floor. Once the hole has been finished, the sump pump is placed within it and fitted with a variety of valves designed to detect rising water levels and pressure. When the water inundating your basement reaches a certain level, the pump will automatically start working to remove it from your basement, leading it away from your home or office and into a special discharge line which then leads to a specific drainage location. Additionally, installing a sewage ejector pump will help to move liquid and soft solid waste into the community sewer system.
The location to which the water is drained can be anything from a creek or well, to your neighbourhood drain system. Regardless of what type of drainage location is used, you must verify that it is not close enough to your property that the water can get back into it. Because of this, it is important to know that your sump pump installation might include a longer drainage hose and could require a larger pump.
If you don’t already have one and your home or office is located where flooding is a possibility, (whether from the effects of unusual increases of seasonal rain, melting snow, or from being built below the area’s water table) your best bet is to look into sump pump or sump pit installation to prevent any water damage to the foundation of your property.
Flood prevention can also help you improve your family’s health because it decreases the possibility of mould development which can alleviate the symptoms of asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems. Accumulated dampness and moisture in your basement can also affect the foundation of your property, leading to costly repairs.
If your home or office already has a sump pump, regular sump pump maintenance can keep your equipment in good operating condition, which ensures that when you need your sump pump most, it will work exactly as planned without making you resort to emergency plumbing services.
