Knoxville Sump Pump
A sump pump is one of those things that you rarely give any though to – until you need it! They see the most use in areas where flooding is a common problem, such as along the coast or near riverbanks, but they are also useful during any type of water accumulation under the house, such as a water leak. Most homes that have basements already have sump pumps installed, and many which have crawl spaces are also using them. Older homes can have them installed at an affordable cost to prevent flooding and water damage. The sump pump is designed to remove water from these areas to prevent flooding and leaking issues. Flood waters and standing water in these areas can not only cause structural damage, but also provoke health issues, and be responsible for mold and mildew issues.

Are you aware of what a sump pump is and does? It’s really quite simple. Water accumulates in a pit which has been dug for the purpose in the floor. The submersible sump pump is placed in the hole, usually at the lowest point I the area, with a switch which evaluates the level of the water. When the water level rises to a predetermined level, the pump switches on, and the water is then pumped from the flooded area away from the house and into either a local sewer or another detention area. You can help prolong the life of your sump pump by removing any sand, dirt or debris. Be certain that there are no obstructions in the discharge line openings.
Sump pumps are constructed to be either plugged into an electrical outlet or hard wired directly into your home. Because flooding conditions frequently also mean electrical outages, a battery backup if common.
