Installing a sump pump is one of the most efficient solutions to get rid of wet basement problems which often occur in certain homes that were not designed to include adequate waterproofing systems. Although it is often considered a relatively easy job, sump pump installation is best to be handled by the professionals. If you know that you are far from a reasonably handy person, you should simply trust sump pump installation to the professionals to prevent any damage.
Establishing the location for your sump pump is not an easy task if you don’t know what to do. Sump pump installation may be a difficult operation in itself, but determining the place where it should be placed for optimum operation is quite challenging. You will need to choose the lowest point of your basement to place your sump pump otherwise the pump will have no use. You also have to pay attention to keep your pump at least 8 inches from the foundation wall, to avoid damage to the footing.
Sump pump installation also involves purchasing the actual pump and liner that comes with it. You must also dig a hole in your basement for the sump pump to be installed. The removal of the concrete floor is the trickiest part of the installation and that is why you may need the help of a professional plumber as you don’t want to cause unnecessary damage to your basement floor.
