Flood Prevention In Franklin, PA

Sump Pump Installations + Repairs

Flooding can be one of the most problematic issues you could be forced to deal with as a homeowner. A tiny bit of water can cause a big problem, and a lot of it can be outright destructive. When you find yourself on the unfortunate end of Mother Nature’s wrath and are looking for the best flood prevention methods, Deets has your back.

Regarding flood prevention, our team is fully trained and ready to implement whatever type of solution would best suit your situation. If your home has a low-lying area, like a basement or crawlspace that’s prone to flooding, there’s a good chance that a sump pump is your best choice to control the water.

At Deets, we want to provide our customers with not only the plumbing services and labor but the information and knowledge that they need to make decisions about their home services with confidence. To help out, we’ve put together this brief rundown on sump pumps.

What Is A Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a simple, yet effective device that consists of a basin that’s installed in whatever area that’s prone to flooding. The basin is a new “low point” for the water to accumulate. Once enough water has accumulated, the water level will trigger a float switch, which in turn will activate a water pump whose job is to force water out via a discharge pipe.

Not So Obvious Sump Pump Benefits

Sump pumps are great at preventing the lower areas of your home from flooding and that’s great! It’s what they’re designed to do. However, preventing flooding also comes with several secondary benefits that are worth considering when choosing sump pump installation in Franklin.

Foundation Protection

Flooding is always a mess, and cleaning up the aftermath is never fun. Often, having to clean up can feel like the worst side effect of flooding. However, one of the most dangerous possibilities of low-laying flooding is damage to your home’s foundation, which can lead to many other, far more expensive, issues.

The faster a flooding issue is handled, the less time water has a chance to do accumulative damage that might be hard to notice as it’s happening.

Increased Property Value

A property that has been equipped with intelligent systems to prevent flooding and damage is going to be more valuable than a property without those systems. So not only will installing a sump pump reduce the risk of property damage from flooding, but it will also raise your property’s appeal for any potential buyers.

Peace Of Mind

It’s hard to put a price on the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is protected from even the hardest of spring storms. With the average sump pump being able to move between 1,500-2,500 gallons per hour, you can sleep through storms easily, knowing that you’re protected from flooding.
