If your home doesn’t have an interior drain system with a sump pump, you may be at risk for water damage. Many people don’t realize the value of these pumps until it’s too late. The right sump pump and drainage system can be priceless backup insurance against water damage. At United Structural Systems, we offer comprehensive basement drainage services including interior drain and sump pump installation services for Murfreesboro area homeowners.
What is a sump pump and how does it work?
Sump pumps are typically installed in a small pit, called a sump pit, in the lower level of your home, like in your basement or crawl space area. The pit collects water from around your foundation, and as it fills with water, the pump turns on automatically. The pump works hand in hand, day and night, with an interior drain system, removing any unwanted water out and away from your home.
