Annapolis Sump Pump Installation
Custom Solutions for Basement Waterproofing
Sump pumps work directly with a waterproofing system to keep water and moisture out of basements and crawl spaces. Water is channeled through the perimeter drainage system to the sump pump, which carries it out of the house. At Maryland Mold and Waterproofing, we offer sump pump installation in Annapolis and surrounding areas to keep basements and crawl spaces dry.
Will A Sump Pump Keep A Basement Dry?
Basement flooding is a common problem in Maryland, but a sump pump connected to a perimeter drainage system can help prevent damage to the structure of your home. A sump pump is designed to keep basements dry. Sump pumps are installed at the lowest part of the basement or crawl space to keep the area dry. When the water in the sump pit reaches a certain level, the pump turns on automatically to remove the water and prevent a flood.
In addition to preventing a flood, a sump pump helps to:
- Efficiently remove water
- Prevent rust and corrosion of metal appliances
- Stop paint and wall coverings from peeling
- Avoid infestations of termites and other insects
- Prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and fungus
If a sump pump fails, you may end up with water in the basement. Unfortunately, many homeowners are not aware of a problem with the sump pump until it fails to turn on. For this reason, it is important to select a quality sump pump that will keep your basement dry and make sure the pump is regularly serviced.
Should a Sump Pump Run Constantly?
A sump pump should not constantly run. Especially if there is no water threatening your basement. When a sump pump runs constantly it more quickly wears out and is more likely to malfunction. If your sump pump is running constantly, it could be because the float switch is stuck in the "on" position, there is a defective check valve, or the pump is too small for the pit.
The Heart of Your Basement Waterproofing System
A sump pump is an essential part of your basement waterproofing system. At Maryland Mold and Waterproofing, we provide sump pump installation in Annapolis with the highest quality products. We recommend our GrateSump™ pump liner with our FastSump Sump Pump. Our GrateSump™ liner is designed with large punched holes that allow ground water to easily enter and to be pumped out. In addition, it is equipped with a built-in pump stand which keeps dirt away from the sump pump impeller.
The FastSump pump was built specifically for Maryland Mold and Waterproofing according to our specs. The pump was tested by our service department for more than three years before it was launched to the public.
Making Sure Your Pump is Always Ready
During sump pump installation in Annapolis, we recommend taking steps to ensure that your home is protected in any storm. When the power goes out, the sump pump won’t turn on, which can leave your basement vulnerable to flooding. We recommend adding battery backup protection with our FastSump inverter and standby battery.
If you need a new sump pump installed, we can evaluate your needs and provide a free estimate for the cost of the installation. Our premium sump pumps are installed for reliable operation by our team of experienced professionals, so you can rest assured that your home will be ready for the next storm.
