The Importance of Having a Sump Pump Installed Before Winter

For homes with basements or crawl spaces, having a sump pump installed is essential to keep it protected against flooding. Yakima & the Tri-Cities sees its fair share of rain and snow, both of which can lead to an accumulation of water and moisture in the lower levels of your home. To combat this, sump pumps work hard to keep the areas dry and moisture-free. Campbell & Company is a leading plumbing expert, and we’re here to ensure you’ve got a sump pump ready to keep your home and plumbing system in good condition and protected from the winter elements.

What Is a Sump Pump?

Diagram of a sump pump

A sump pump is a system installed in your basement or crawl space. It’s designed with a sensor that detects increasing levels of water, and it will then collect excessive water in a sump basin and pump it out of your home. Sump pumps come in four styles: pedestal pump, submersible, battery-operated backup, and water-powered backup.

How Does Water Accumulate in Basements and Crawl Spaces?

There are a few causes of water buildup in your basement or crawl space, the most common being:

  • Heavy rainfall
  • Melted snow or ice
  • Missing or damaged rain gutters
  • Leaks from plumbing appliances
  • Groundwater issues

The Benefits of Sump Pumps

While having a sump pump installed may not always seem necessary, there are many benefits that come with a professional sump pump installation. Some of these benefits include:

  • Prevents your basement or crawl space from flooding
  • Keeps your home’s foundation protected against water damage
  • Reduces the risk of mold & mildew growth
  • Limits humidity
  • Improves your home’s indoor air quality
  • Can increase your home’s property value
  • Protection from sewage backups
  • Reduced risk of termite/insect infestations
