Waterproofing and Sump Pump

It’s that time of year. Winter is fast approaching and each of us who own homes are thinking about how to winterize them. It isn’t the most pleasant of past times, but it’s important for the upkeep of our property. There are several things, in a home, that need to be winterized. One of the most important is the basement. Kansas City basement waterproofing is done through the use of a sump pump. To start, let’s look at the purpose, varieties and functions of the pumps.

A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a water collecting sump basin, commonly found in the basement of homes. It is installed into a basement in a specifically designed area called a sump pit and is used to measure and keep an eye on any water that would seep into the home through the ground or foundation. The purpose of Kansas City basement waterproofing is that the sump pit and pumps need to be checked on for upkeep or for a new sump pump installation. It is important that it is working properly in order to keep excess water from filling up your basement in the dead of winter.

There are two types of sump pumps to choose from when thinking about installing a new pump. There is a submersible pump that is installed deep within the sump pit of your basement or a pedestal pump that sits above the water line. They both can tackle the same issue, they are just placed in and measure water differently; whether below or above the water.

Keep in mind that no one wants to deal with drying up their basement, cleaning up furniture damage or putting in a new sump pump in the middle of winter. It is much too cold to deal with repairs, right?. So, in order to avoid this catastrophe, we recommend having CPS Foundation Repair, handling Kansas City basement waterproofing, to come out and take a look at your basement systems and see what is needed to get your space ready for the cold weather season ahead. Be winter resistant, call in the experts. We wish you all a safe and dry winter folks!
