Water Sump Pumps

Water sump pumps are usually installed in the basement of a house in order to protect the property from water damage. Houses that are built in wet areas that usually have a lot of rainfall or that are affected when the winter freeze starts to thaw can experience problems with flooding which usually occurs in the spring. As a result many houses will have water sump pumps installed in the basement as this is where most of the water will enter the home.

Pedestal Sump Pumps

Pedestal sump pumps are generally upright electric pumps. Just like other sump pumps, they are designed to prevent basements from becoming flooded and property being damaged. A sump pump placed in the lowest part of the basement can prevent flooding and other water damage by moving the water away from the property when it reaches a certain level.
