Sump Pump Installation & Repair in the Chicago Metro Area
Most Chicago basement flooding occurs as a result of groundwater buildup. As the ground beneath your home becomes saturated, water seeps through cracks in the foundation – leading to plumbing problems, extensive damage and loss of property value.
One simple, inexpensive way to stop the water before it destroys your basement is a sump pump.
Sump pumps are devices with built-in sensors to detect water flow. When the water level reaches the sensor, the pump activates and carries it safely away from your home’s foundation. Sump pumps are usually wired into the house’s main electrical system, but it’s critical for them to have some kind of power backup as well. Many sump pumps use car-style batteries as a power backup, while others run off the water pressure in your home.
