The Importance of Sump Pumps
Whenever a home has a basement, Shane Elmore Plumbing advises its customers the importance of a sump pump. A sump pump is a critical piece of plumbing equipment that pumps excess water out of a basement into a storm drain. There are two types of sump pumps: submersible and pedestal.
Some sump pumps come with a battery backup, but most are hardwired into your home’s electrical system. During storms that cause flooding, the power to your home is often knocked out as well, so using a battery-backed pump or water-pressure-powered unit is the safer option to prevent flooding in your basement.
