Getting a Sump Pump Installed in Your Atlanta, GA, Home Can Easily Remove Excess Water from Your Property
A sump pump could help Atlanta, Georgia, homeowners whose properties are being affected by excess water. While seeing standing water in your basement is one of the most obvious signs that unwanted water is seeping into your home, you may have noticed several other indicators. These indicators can include water-stained walls, a damp smell, and fungal growth in certain areas of your home. If left unchecked, this unwanted water may seep into your home’s foundation and potentially cause serious structural issues.
In order to ensure that homes throughout Atlanta remain protected from damaging levels of moisture, the experts at Engineered Solutions of Georgia can install a sump pump. To do this, our experts will typically cut a 2’ diameter hole on the floor of a basement or excavate a 2’ deep hole in the floor of a crawlspace. We then line the excavation with a filter fabric to prevent silt from entering the sump and, once the area is fully prepped, install the sump pump. There are numerous reasons why homeowners opt for this type of drainage system over others, including:
- Pumps can remove up to 2,100 gallons of water each hour
- A sump pump is safe to operate and requires little maintenance, as the lid can be easily removed if a pump requires repair
- Wall power recharges the pump’s battery after a power outage
