Sump pumps could save your home from flooding this season!!
When the snow starts to melt and the rain begins to fall, homeowners in Winnipeg know that it's time to start worrying about potential flooding. A sump pump from Lynn's HVAC can help take the worry out of flood season, by keeping your home dry and protected.
Knowing that you have a sump pump installed in your home can give you peace of mind during the spring and summer months.
What Is A Sump Pump?
A sump pump (submersible pump) is a pump that is installed at the lowest point of your home, typically in the basement or crawlspace. Its job is to remove any water that has accumulated in this area and send it outside and away from your home.
How Does A Sump Pump Work?
When water starts to accumulate in the sump pit or sump basin, the float switch turns on and activates the pump. The pump then starts to send the water outside through a discharge pipe. Once the water level has gone down, the float switch turns off and the pump stops running.
Types Of Sump Pumps
There are two main types of sump pumps:
Pedestal Pumps - Pedestal pumps have the float switch mounted on a long pole, which keeps it away from the actual pump. A pedestal pump is best for basements with limited space.
Submersible pumps - Submersible pumps are completely underwater, with the float switch attached to the actual pump. A submersible sump pump is best for basements that are prone to flooding.
Sewer drains can also back up into your home during periods of heavy rain or melting snow. A sump pump can help to remove this water as well, keeping your basement or crawlspace dry and free of sewage.
Why Do I Need A Sump Pump?
Winnipeg is no stranger to floods. In fact, the city has experienced some of the worst floods in recent history, with the flood of 1997 causing over $1 billion in damage. A sump pump can help to protect your home from flood damage by quickly removing any water that has entered your basement or crawlspace.
Without sump pump systems, your home is at risk for flooding and the serious water damage that can come with it. Lynn's HVAC can help you avoid this by helping you choose and install the right sump pump for your home, as well as providing annual maintenance to ensure that it continues to run properly.
