The Value of A Sump Pump

High levels of rain and melting snow in the spring can cause your Chicago basement to have water issues. The professionals at United Structural Systems has the experience and best products available for your basement waterproofing in Chicagoland area and Suburbs. One of the ways to keep your basement dry is the installation of a sump pump system.

A sump pump is a pump that is used to remove water that has accumulated in a sump basin in a home's basement. Water may enter this basin from perimeter drains of a basement waterproofing system that has funneled into the basin or because of rain or a high water table.

Sump pumps are used when flooding happens regularly and where the water table is above the foundation of a home. Sump pumps drain the water away from the home and foundation. The installation of a sump pump is necessary for both newly constructed homes and older houses with outdated drainage systems.

The sump pump stands in a sump basin, or pit, that has been dug in the lowest part of the basement. As the pit fills with water, the pump turns on when the pit reaches a certain level. The pump moves the water out of the pit through a pipe that runs away from your home. Sump pumps turn on automatically through a float activator.
