With hundreds of sump pumps available, finding the right pump for you and your home is extremely important.It needs to reliably and automatically pump water away from your foundation, restoring your peace of mind.
A sump pump is a submersible pump, located inside a sump pump pit that collects groundwater. When a specified water level is reached, the pump automatically turns on and pumps the water outside through a series of pipes.
Technological improvements in sump pump design has come a long way in recent years, still many outdated sump pumps remain in the homes of Greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware area residents. Plastic pumps are prone to overheating and clear check valves offer you a level of protection not found in older models.

Why Sump Pumps are so important
It’s no surprise to you that Philadelphia is a rainy city. Averaging nearly 50 inches of rainfall throughout the year, plus the more than 10 inches of snowmelt, water in the basement or crawl space is a common problem for many Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware homeowners.
So why is it essential to take care of water as soon as it is discovered? We’ll explain.
Mold and Structural Failure
A wet basement means mold growth. And mold is incredibly harmful, in your basement and throughout your home. It’s dangerous to breathe and if left untreated can lead to structural failure.
That’s because where there is mold, there could be wood rot. When your wooden joists are infected with wood rot, the wood is broken down or softened by the fungus. Unable to support your floorboards properly, the floor sags and bounces when you step on the affected spot.
High Energy Bills
A wet, humid basement means extra work for your AC unit and furnace. These appliances have to work harder since the stack effect sends warm air higher creating a change in temperature upstairs. You’re AC and furnace need to work overtime to stabilize the temperature. This leads to high energy bills.
A sump pump effectively drains water out of your basement, eliminating the stack effect and saving you money in the long run.
