cracked-foundation.jpgDoes a sump pump seem like an unnecessary extra cost? We understand that many homeowners just don't think it's essential to have one on-hand, but we think it's time to reconsider.

Too many homes end up with serious water damage as a result of flooding or water finding its way, and often the whole mess could be avoided simply by having a sump pump available. to you. 

Here are some reasons why you should consider a sump pump:

  1. Keep Your Basement DryThis is the main reason for a sump pump. When the pump pit starts to fill up with water, the pump removes the water through a pipe that leads to the outside. Does your basement have a musty, sour smell? Does it seem cooler than normal? If so, a sump pump will help take care of these issues.
  2. Prevent Dangerous Mold — Because the sump pump keeps the space under the house dry, it prevents mold and mildew. Mold and mildew are not just unsightly, but they can be health hazards to people who are allergic to them.
  3. Avoid Disastrous Flooding — Even when a sump pump isn’t working, it can alert the homeowner if the basement or crawlspace is in danger of being flooded. This notifies the homeowner that it is time to call one of our plumbing professionals at Donnelly's to come out to resolve the issue.
