Preparing for Spring Flooding
With spring on the horizon many people are preparing for the warmer weather and clearing out the winter debris from the garden but for those in flood-prone areas, much time may be spent thinking about tackling the April showers and protecting homes from floodwater entry. As basement pump installers we think that having a sump pump is the key to keeping your home prepared for potential springtime flooding.
If your home has been flooded before, you know all too well that most of the time you have to turn of the electrics while water dissipates, or repairs are carried out. While this may render your kitchen and living room useless for some time, it doesn’t have to prevent a sump pump from ridding the water from the house. All sumps installed by our basement pump installers come with a battery backup, so you can rest assured your flood protection is working, even in a power outage.
Our basement pump installers regularly carry out work on both residential and commercial properties and can scale up or down flood prevention solutions to suit. While most homes may only require one pump in the basement, businesses such as restaurants and hotels may have much more expansive spaced beneath the first floor, which could be extremely costly if they were to become flood filled. For bigger areas like this, we can install multiple pumps to deal with larger quantities of water.
