Get Started

Severe weather and increased flooding in our area can cause problems in your basement or crawlspace. Even if there’s a high water table and dampness in your basement, a sump pump can redirect excess water outside and away from your home’s foundation.

Sump Pump Solutions for Wet Basements

Many homes in our area are constructed with full or partial basements. In areas where the water table is high or where flooding may occur, a sump pump can be your best defense against damaging water. Basements may also house important HVAC equipment — furnace or boiler, air handler and water heater— that can be damaged by excess water and flooding, so it’s key to protect them properly.

Dry Basements are Healthy Basements

Energeyes’ whole-home approach takes a good look at your basement and foundation to ensure that your home is as efficient and healthy as possible. Excess moisture under your house can create health problems and make your home feel damp and smell musty. In addition to a sump pump installation, your home’s basement may also benefit from a high-efficiency dehumidifier to keep humidity levels down and prevent mold and unhealthy pests from gaining a foothold.

How Does a Sump Pump Work?

A sump pump is usually installed in the lowest area of your basement floor so that water will drain toward it. It is also situated next to the exterior foundation or basement wall. The pump will sit in a deep basin that is set below the floor level. As water flows into the basin, the sump pump is triggered and begins pumping the water up and out of the basement through a PVC pipe. Outside the home, the drain pipe is directed away from the foundation. Many modern sump pumps have a battery backup feature so they can continue to function even when the power is out.

Sump Pump Installation

To install a sump pump the basin must be set into the ground so that the top edge is even with the basement floor. To do this, a circle of the basement floor must be removed using a concrete hammer. Once the concrete is opened up, a hole will be dug at the proper depth to hold the sump basin. If a high water table is the cause of moisture, the basin may be perforated and lined with a filter cloth so that excess water beneath the foundation may be collected and pumped out. Once the basin is in place and sealed in using concrete around the lip, the pump is installed, hooked up to power and connected to the drainpipe. The drainpipe will travel up the foundation wall, pass through to the exterior, then be directed down into the ground and away to an area where water will not cause a problem.
