Sump Pump

Sump Pump is well-known to solve most of the basement flooding and leaking issues as they are specifically designed to remove water from basements and crawl spaces. This is basically a submersible pump which is installed in pits, known as sump pits. Ground Water surrounding your home’s foundation is discharged into a perimeter drain system which is fixed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers the way through the perforated drain pipes and is discharged into the sump pit. The sum pump eliminates the water when it is activated by a float switch. A sump pump sets in motion only when the water inside is at a predetermined level. There is a subsidy program by Government of $1750 for each installation of sump pump and $ 1280 for backwater valve.
