The Pennsylvanian’s Guide to Floods

You probably don’t hear us talking about sump pumps very often. While they might not be the most exciting blog post topic, they’re absolutely worth addressing. Sump pumps are the Pennsylvanian’s answer to our moody weather and unpredictable precipitation. Instead of dealing with a flooded basement year after year, why not invest in one system that is proven to reduce expenses and protect your home from flooding?

Why would we talk about sump pump service in Bucks County now? Well, to put it bluntly, fall is going to have its mix of rain and snow. One day could be filled with pouring rain or sunny skies, and the next could be a snowstorm, followed by that snow melting and flooding your basement. The unpredictability of our weather makes it our job to propose to you the right solutions.

What Does a Sump Pump Do?

Sump pumps are pieces of equipment in charge of catching the floodwaters that would normally make your basement uninhabitable. Have you ever woken up on a morning where you’ve groggily walked down the stairs headed towards the basement, only to see three feet of water covering the entire area of your basement? It’s not a pleasant surprise, to say the least.

A sump pump can stop that from happening. This pump collects the water that would normally flood your basement and ends up pumping it out, either through your sewer system or outside your home. If you’ve got a good irrigation system on your property, a sump pump could even pump that water into your garden or a pond!

Why Is It Important Here?

Pennsylvania is home to a lot of rain and snow. Sometimes that rain is overbearing and can end up flooding your basement. Sometimes the snow that comes later on in the fall can melt and cause your basement to flood anyways. Regardless of where the moisture comes from, or the form that it takes, it can be a problem.

Flooded basements can contribute to mold growth and the destruction of your home’s foundation and property. Why would you pay money to have your basement finished if it’s just going to fill up with water every year and ruin all the electronics and fixtures you’ve inserted? It’s time to invest in a sump pump to protect your property, your health, and your sanity!

Call the Pros
