flood damage

Having a sump pump can help protect your home and your belongings while offering you peace of mind during storms, heavy rain and the winter melting season. Especially if your home is prone to flooding during unfavorable weather, if you have cracks in your foundation that allow water from the ground to seep in, or if you live near a substantial body of water that swells during heavy rain, your home could benefit from having a sump pump and a backup sump pump installed.

What is a Sump Pump?

The way a sump pump works is simple: A pump is installed in your basement or in the lowest part of your home, which has a sensor that can tell when the water level in the sump pit becomes too high. As soon as this sensor is activated, the pump switches on, begins to extract the water in the pit and moves it into your drainage system.

The Benefits of a Sump Pump & a Backup Sump Pump

A sump pump is a simple solution that can help you avoid extensive and costly water damage to your home. In our area, a sump pump and a backup sump pump can mean the difference between having to deal with the hassle and devastation a flooded basement can cause and weathering a storm easily.

Having a sump pump in your basement is great under normal circumstances, but with all of the storms and hurricanes that pass through our region, if you’re ever in a situation where you lose electricity, you are going to need much more than just a sump pump. That is why Sobieski recommends and installs backup sump pump systems that are battery powered, so that no matter what type of weather your home has to endure, your basement will be protected against flooding.
