What to Know About Sump Pumps
Many homeowners aren't aware of what a sump pump is or how it protects your residential property. Fortunately, the plumbing professionals at Mr. Rooter® Plumbing of North Central Indiana are highly knowledgeable about residential sump pump systems and resolving their issues. Sump pumps are designed to keep basements from being flooded. They have float switches that are triggered when water reaches a certain level. Once that level is reached, the sump pump starts to remove water from the basement and relocates it to an outdoor area, such as a well or nearby storm drain. Sump pumps should have a battery-powered water-level alarm to ensure your family knows when potential flooding might occur.
