During heavy rains, some homeowners depend on a sump pump to remove water from their living space. While California residents don’t experience frequent, torrential rainfalls as much as other parts of the country, it is not uncommon to see sump pumps installed in Orange County homes. This is especially true for residences with inadequate drainage as they tend to experience flooding in the basement or around their property following a storm.
A sump pump is a small device that sits in a “sump pit” dug into the lowest point of your home such as the basement floor or crawl space. A pipe is attached and runs out to a safe area where water can be disposed away from your property.
As it rains, water naturally flows to the lowest point of ground beneath your home. If you have a sump pump installed, this water will begin to pool into the sump pit. Once the water reaches a certain level, the sump pump will automatically activate to dispose of the rainwater.
Opting to install a sump pump can save you from severe and costly water damage. By choosing the Fullerton plumbers at Innovative Sewer & Scope, you can rest easy knowing we’ll work with you to choose the proper sump pump model and identify the best placement for it within your home.
For those who already have a sump pump installed, don’t forget about the importance of sump pump maintenance. Much like you would service your car to keep it in good operating condition, your plumbing needs regular checkups as well. You certainly don’t want to wait until you absolutely need it to work, only to find out it doesn’t. Contact us for routine sump pump service or repair today.
