4 Benefits of Installing a Sump Pump, Waialua, Hawaii

Water collecting in your basement will eat at your foundation, cause walls to warp, and damage your personal belongings. Fortunately, a sump pump will handle that excess moisture. Here are some of the specific benefits of installing a sump pump in the basement of your home.

4 Advantages of Installing a Sump Pump

1. Keeping Water Out of Your House

A sump pump’s purpose is to get rid of excess water before it can damage concrete and require repairs that could cost thousands. The pump is installed in a pit at the lowest point in the floor, where it collects water. When the pit is full, the pump activates and sends the water far away from the foundation, where it won’t leak back into the house.

2. Preventing Mold & Mildew

3. Boosting Your Property Value

If you’re putting your house on the market, sump pumps can help you get a higher price. Buyers put a premium on features that will protect their investment, and many are willing to pay for the peace of mind a sump pump provides.

4. Advanced Features

Many modern sump pumps have backup generators to ensure they keep working if the power goes out. Some will even send notifications to your phone if the water level in the basement rises above a certain level.
