Protect Your Home's Foundation and Your Personal Items with a New Sump Pump in Bloomfield Hills
Proudly Serving Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne Counties
When winter snow melts and spring rains begin to fall, water can seep into the ground, next to your foundation, and pools next to your home’s exterior. Often it leads to water penetrating the floors and walls of your basement, flooding it, and damaging your home or possessions. Replacing your sump pump with a newer one will be re-insurance that you won’t have an issue with flooding in the future.
What Does a Sump Pump Really Do?
Sump pumps are an effective way to control basement flooding. Sump pumps collect groundwater in a tank. When the water reaches a certain level, a motor is activated, draining the water through a pipe and discharging it away from the foundation (usually in your backyard).Contact Us for Plumbing Service
Cost-Effective Flood Control Using French Drains
French drains are another helpful method for managing the movement of water on your property. They use a passive system of perforated pipes in a substrate bed to collect and channel water away from foundations and other areas prone to flooding. They are a low maintenance, energy-free way to redirect water away from foundations and other unwanted areas. They are also useful in collecting water that runs off inclines supported by retaining walls or naturally occurring higher elevations. Rain seeps through a stone substrate lined ditch that contains a perforated pipe. As the water level in the ditch rises, water enters the tube through the holes. Gravity transports the water down the pipe and away from unwanted areas.Request a Sump Pump Consultation Today
