Sump pumps are an effective tool when it comes to waterproofing your home, re-directing water out of your wet basement.
The waterproofing contractors at Canada Waterproofers Milton recommend the installation of a sump pump in your home, a great waterproofing tool that re-directs water away from the foundation and footings of your home, making sure your basement stays cozy and dry in the event of a storm.
Many of us have converted our basements into living space. At the very least, our basements are where we store valuable items. That additional basement space adds value to our home.
A sump pump is usually installed so that the weeping tile system that surrounds the perimeter of the house has a place to drain (weeping tile is also called a drainage tile, pushing underground water away from your home).
The old method of draining a weeping tile was to connect it to your home’s drainage system. But that system is deteriorating and can’t keep up with the increase in precipitation we are now seeing.
Sump pumps are a great way of protecting your basement.
