Why Sump Pump Installation Is Best Left To The Professionals, O'Fallon, Missouri

Water accumulating in your basement during heavy rain poses a major threat to the structural integrity of your home and the safety of your family. Over time, water damage to your foundation can result in extremely expensive repairs, while the presence of water near your electrical system presents the risk of electrocution. If you've noticed pools in your basement, Culver Inc., plumbing experts serving the St. Louis, MO area, recommends installing a sump pump to protect your home. Installing a sump pump is a delicate job that should only be handled by professionals.

A sump pump sits in a pit in your basement, collecting water that penetrates through cracks and seeps through the walls. When the water in the pit reaches a certain level, the pump engages and deposits the water away from your home or into your local sewer system. Where the pump sends the excess water depends a great deal on your local building codes, so it's best to call in an expert who understands the zoning regulations in your area.

Installing the pump itself requires working with both the electrical and plumbing systems in your home, which can be very dangerous if you don't know exactly what you're doing. This is a job best left to a professional plumber with extensive experience installing sump pumps, so you can be sure that it's installed safely and in compliance with the local building codes.
