In some form or another, pumps have existed since the Ancient Egyptians, around 2000 BC. It was a mechanism called a shadoof, utilizing a bucket attached to a wooden pole and a counterweight for irrigation. A sump pump is a small, much more advanced pump that is placed in the lowest part of a crawlspace or basement to keep your home’s foundation dry to maintain its structural integrity. It is also used to prevent basement flooding. When a sump pump is installed in your home, it is placed in a small alcove designed for it called a sump pit. Water collects in the sump pit, which the sump pump expels to keep your basement dry. Why are Sump Pumps Beneficial? A flooded basement can not only cause thousands of dollars in damage, but it can also be a major health hazard. Moisture fosters mold which can spread throughout your house without your knowledge. This can make your family very sick especially if that mold is black. Mold can cause asthma attacks, internal fungal infections and worse. Basements are an excellent place for mold to grow since they tend to be dark and warm. Sump pumps eliminate the problem from the root by keeping your basement dry. Who Do I Need Sump Pump Services?
