What Is A Sump Pump and how do they Work?
A sump pump is a device used in a home to prevent flooding by pumping excess water away. Sump pumps contain a heavy-duty mechanism inside which pumps accumulated water from the basin.
Most of the time, sump pumps are found in basements, typically located near flooding exit pipes which allow accumulated rain, typically from storms typically to be flushed out of the house. To get the water away from the basement, a perimeter drain allows water flow into a well so it can be flushed outside the property.

What Is A Sump Pump And How Does It Work?

You’ll often find a sump pump in just about any home with a basement in the Chicago-land area. Because most flooding stems from rain storms, a sum pump allows water from the storm's perimeter to enter into the sump pump area where it can drain excess water out of the property.
Does Your Home Need a Sump Pump in Your Home?
If your home is located in an area that is prone to flooding, your sump pump will send water in to your basement or crawlspace. Getting a sump pump is a prudent move and can protect your home from serious flood damage.

This allows you to sleep well at night knowing that your home is secure and free from most damaging flood water. Quite simply, not having one of these mechanisms to pump excess water out, can subject your home to flooding and severe water damage which can lead to mold, mildew and awful odors.

Two Sump Pump Types
There are primarily two types of sump pumps to choose from.
Submersible Pump: Submersible pumps are most often found in residential homes in the Chicago area. These feature a pump which is located under water to cut back and reduce noise while allowing more efficient operation. Submersible pumps generally have a longer shelf life and are easier to operate than most others.
Pedestal Pump: Pedestal pumps have an impeller at the base and feature an above water motor. These are often much noisier because they are above ground and because of that, they allow for easier access for maintenance or repair.
