WHY ARE SUMP PUMPS CRUCIAL IN THE SASKATOON AREA?
Sump pumps are often found in the basement, along with a water basin. When water enters the basement, either through heavy rainfall or flooding, the sump pump removes the excess water and directs it away from your home. Sump pumps are especially important for homes located on floodplains or low lying areas.
Since sump pumps usually rely on electricity, some units feature a battery back up. Other units are controlled by the home’s pressurized water supply, eliminating the need for electricity (but possibly costing more in water disposal).
In short, sump pumps play an important part in controlling the level of moisture in the home, as well providing a safer and more reliable home structure.
