Preventing Water Damage

For homes in low-lying areas, a sump pump can be a lifesaver. Installed in the basement or crawlspace, this small piece of equipment diverts or pumps away water from the home or building.

Types of Sump Pumps

If you’ve experienced coming home to a flooded basement, then you could understand why having a sump pump is a must. Today’s sump pumps come in a wide variety of models and brands, so how do you know which one is right for you? At L.E Isley & Sons, we can help you understand your options and guide you towards the most suitable sump pump for your home.

The three main types of sump pumps include:

  • Submersible sump pump – As the name suggests, a submersible sump pump fully functions underwater. It is installed within the sump pit or sump basin, which not only saves space but also allows for a quieter operation. A submersible sump pump is capable of moving more water than other types of sump pumps, making it the best choice for property owners in low-lying areas or areas with heavy rainfalls. The only downside to a submersible sump pump, however, is its high initial cost.
  • Pedestal sump pump – A pedestal sump pump is installed outside the sump pit. It instead has an extended shaft that reaches in the pit to get to the water. Unlike the submersible type, a pedestal sump pump has less motor power so it can’t move large amounts of water. It can also be very noisy while running since it’s aboveground. What homeowners love about this type of sump pump, however, is its low initial cost.
  • Battery backup sump pump – If you want to have complete peace of mind knowing for certain that your home will stay dry even after heavy rains or a plumbing disaster, it’s best to have a backup sump pump. These sump pumps are battery-operated, so even with power failure, it will continue to keep the water away from your property.

Importance of Having a Backup Pump in Indianapolis

Heavy rains and thunderstorms can sometimes knock down power lines, rendering your sump pumps useless. That’s why it’s always handy to have a backup sump pump. A battery-operated pump can make sure your basement or home remains dry in the event that your primary sump pump malfunctions. Speak with a member of our expert plumbing team so we can explain your options for a backup sump pump and schedule a flawless installation as soon as possible.
