A Sump Pump can Keep Your Basement Dry

When water collects in your basement or crawlspace, it can cause a lot of problems. Besides damaging the structure and items you have there, any unattended moisture can begin a mold/mildew problem that is tough to stop. When water in your basement is constantly a problem, a sump pump from Ackerman Plumbing can keep your Iowa City or Williamsburg area basement dry.

Avoid Water Damage

Any type of water collecting in your home is a problem, but basement/crawl space water is particularly troublesome.

  • You may not enter these areas often, so it can accumulate unnoticed.

  • Because it can go unnoticed, water below your home can start to damage the foundation, and help mold and mildew grow.

  • The mold and mildew below your home will then enter the air you breathe in your own home, which can cause respiratory problems and illness.

How Does a Sump Pump Work?

The pump is typically installed in the lowest part of your basement, and usually in a specifically constructed sump pit. Water naturally collects at the pit, this lowest point, and the pump removes it from the home by pumping it outside. Most often a sensor alerts the pump when moisture is present, causing it to start automatically.
