You may be looking at different sump pump options without knowing exactly what they can do for you. A sump pump is a small pump that is installed in the lowest area of your home, whether that be the basement or a crawl space or elsewhere. Placed within the sump pit, your pump ensures that any liquid is taken out of your home without issue.
Common basement systems can help prevent water from entering, but if they fail, you are left with a rising problem that needs to be handled quickly and effectively. A sump pump is the solution you are looking for.
Sump Pump Drainage System
The Hydraway Drainage System directs any water that enters your home into the sump pit, allowing the pump to do its job and pump water out of the pit and away from your home. Basement floods can occur more than once and your basement or crawl space isn’t completely blocked off from water.
If you constantly run into water problems in the lower levels of your home, a sump pump system will save you time and money in the long run. Hydraway provides installation for new systems or upgrades for existing systems so that you are getting the best return on your investment. Proper drainage allows your sump pump to perform at its optimum level, but if your entire drainage system is lacking in certain areas, you’ll find your sump pump system performing suboptimally. Everything from basement waterproofing to the sump pump discharge needs to be watertight to ensure that trouble doesn’t mount in the future.
A Hydraway drainage system allows your sump pump to function and keeps your basement dry.
Basement Sump Pump Drainage Systems
The different aspects of a sump pump system are:
Sump Pit: A small hole in the lowest area of the home that the sump pump device sits in
Discharge Pipe or Line: The pipe that directs water out of your basement
Check Valve: A one-way valve that ensures water does not flow backward
Pressure Sensor: The sensor that directs the sump pump to automatically turn on
Centrifugal Pump: The device that moves water out of the sump pit
Impeller: The fan-like device that uses centrifugal force to push water out through the discharge pipe
Using these different components, you can create a system that allows your sump pump to do its job effectively. Leaks can cause lasting damage, but standing water can create structural damage that cuts deep. Keeping your basement dry should be one of the highest priorities in your home maintenance. With Hydraway, you don’t need to worry about keeping water out now or ever again.
