Basement floods are all too common in Regina, especially during the melt season and after heavy rainfall. A sump pump is a simple but efficient tool that can help prevent flooding so that you don’t need to be concerned about water damage to your basement. A sump pump can be a vital addition to your home, especially in Saskatchewan. Sump pumps are placed inside a sump pit in your basement. Sump pumps usually turn on automatically through a float activator arm or a pressure sensor device. As your sump pit fills with water, your sump pump will turn on to remove all of the excess water that would otherwise cause a flood. Sump pumps will prevent flooding and are an excellent solution to a potentially costly problem. Sump pumps are beneficial for many other reasons aside from preventing floods. These include the prevention of rust and corrosion of your basement appliances, the prevention of paint from peeling, the removal of moisture, which leads to fungus and mildew, and the prevention of insect infestation. Remember that it only takes a little bit of water to cause severe damage to your basement and home.
