Basement Sump Pumps
Why You Need A Sump Pump
When it rains in Overland Park, it often pours, and sometimes that water can overwhelm and seep through a foundation, even if it’s not that old. Not only that, but the soil around your home is constantly draining water throughout the year, and unless you really pay attention, it can be hard to know when it has the potential to affect the structure of your home.
Often, basements can spring leaks due to a phenomenon called hydrostatic pressure—the force of collected groundwater that pushes against foundation walls and causes them to bow or crack. Water then leaks through even the tiniest of foundation cracks into your basement. If your foundation has settled over the years, there may be plenty of small cracks, gaps in window wells, or other spaces where water will get in.
A sump pump is a simple, small electric pump that sits in a sump pit or “basket” dug in your basement floor. Often accompanied by an interior basement drainage system in your Overland Park home that guides the water in, a sump pump will then kick on automatically and pump out the water away from your home’s foundation.
