Prevent Basement Flooding With A Sump Pump

After the recent flooding in the Mississauga/Toronto area, many home owners are looking at options to protect their home from future flooding, and damage.

One of the best ways to prevent a flooded basement is by installing a sump pump in your home.

Sump pumps work by being installed in a pit in the lowest part of a building. They are placed in a basin, usually below your basement, that collects water through drains, or naturally through the soil. The pump then pumps the water from the pit to a safe location outside your home, preventing water from affecting your basement.

Severe storms often cause power failures, and since sump pumps operate on electricity, it is a very good idea to get a system installed that includes back up battey power. These systems are usually powered by a marine battery if your homes AC power source is knocked out.

Systems without backup power can also be upgraded to include a secondary power source to prevent flooding in homes that already have AC powered systems.
