Sump Pump Services in Richmond
Protecting Your Home & Your Family from Water Damage
Believe it or not, water can severely damage your home. Whether from a storm or a plumbing issue, water damage can result in mold, staining, and in some instances total losses. One way to protect your home from water damage is the use of a sump pump. Generally installed in your basement, a sump pump carries excess water away from your home, keeping it dry even in the most severe cases of flooding. At M.A. Williams Inc. we can provide you with full sump pump services including installations and repairs. With a professionally installed sump pump, you can achieve the peace of mind you deserve no matter how bad a storm gets.
Why Invest in a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps provide the last line of defense for a home in the event of a flood. Usually located in the basement or lowest area on the first level of a home, a sump pump automatically turns on when water levels are high enough to trigger the pump. Because they are mounted in the lowest spot of a home, sump pumps can expel a great deal of water in only a few minutes and prevent serious water damage from ever occurring.
Even though the most common cause of flooding is rain, other internal systems can also culminate in flooding. Damaged water heaters or washing machines, burst pipes, and other internal sources of water can also justify the need for a sump pump. Let our experienced Richmond plumbers help you choose which of the two top sump pump styles will work best in your home.
The two most popular types of sump pumps are:
- Pedestal sump pump: This style of sump pump is raised up into the air by a pipe connecting it to its intake located down at the ground. Pedestal sump pumps are generally affordable but can be more difficult to conceal due to their elevated motors.
- Submersible sump pump: These pumps are smaller and usually more efficient. Submersible units are always placed directly in the sump pit providing you with a concealed and more efficient unit. Because it is submerged in water when it runs, the engine is kept cooler and generally lasts longer than pedestal sump pumps.
Both types can be installed with battery backup systems so that they will work even if there is a power outage in your community. At M.A. Williams Inc. we can provide you with options for both styles that will fit in your home and help you choose the perfect model.
