If you have water problems in your basement or crawl space, you could be wasting valuable space in your home. Your wet basement or crawl space could also be causing other issues in your home that you might not have noticed, like mold or structural damage. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to put an end to flooding or wetness below the home is by installing a sump pump.
A sump pump keeps the basement dry by relieving water pressure. Drain pipe installed inside the basement along the edge of the floor collects water and carries it to a sump pit. The sump pump comes on automatically when water in the sump pit reaches a certain level, pumping the water outside the house through a discharge line.
Plumbers, basement waterproofing specialists (like Basement Systems contractors) and even DIYers can install sump pumps, although it takes specialized equipment and experience to install a complete sump pump system like the ones designed by Basement Systems. Choosing the best sump pump for your needs is just as important as making sure it is installed properly.
If your basement doesn’t have a perimeter drain or sump pit, this is the typical process you can expect during the installation of your sump pump system. The installation method is similar for a crawl space.

Sump pumps can keep water from damaging your basement or crawl space. The cost of installing a sump pump can save you money in the long run. The average cost of sump pump installation depends on the size and set up of the system and whether there's any existing water buildup or damage.
