Tired of a Wet Basement?

Is a sump pump the answer? Let Isley Plumbing help! 

Spring has sprung — no “plumber’s pun” intended. We are about to head into rainy season and when rain falls on your home and property, you want to make sure none of that water enters hour home. If you have a basement or cellar, or another room in your home that is mostly underground, it can be surprisingly easy for water to seep in and cause damage. 

“If homeowners are having frequent flooding in their homes year after year, it is probably time for a solution,” shares Isley’s Plumbing’s co-owner Doug Isley. “A sump pump is the answer and they can be installed at the lowest point of a home, designed to automatically pump excess water away from your home and keeping your basement safe and dry.” 

Do You Need a Sump Pump? 

For many homeowners, deciding if a sump pump is essential for your home can be difficult, especially if you’ve been able to avoid flooding so far. However, even if you’ve never had to deal with flooding, getting a sump pump installed is still highly recommended by our plumbing experts as a preventative measure if you live in an at-risk area. 

You May Need a Sump Pump If: 

  • You’ve experienced flooding issues in the past 

  • Your home is in a problematic location, such as a flat plot with little drainage, below the water table, or on poorly draining soil 

  • You live in an area where there’s frequent rainfall or snow 

  • There’s mold growing in your basement or cellar 

  • Your sump pump is more than 10 years old
