Sump Pumps in Tampa

We get a lot of rain here in Tampa, and for some homes, each heavy rainfall brings with it the fear of flooding. If you’ve got a problem with flooding on your property, you may need the help of a permanent installation in your home: a sump pump. Sump pumps become necessary when flooding begins in a low area of the home, so that gravity is not sufficient to direct water into a drain. Instead, a pump lifts water out of the lowest point of your home so that it can safely drain away from the building. If you are considering a sump pump for your property, or if yours requires maintenance or repairs, get ahold of the plumbers at Peninsular Plumbing.

Peninsular Plumbing provides sump pumps and sump pump services in Tampa and the surrounding areas.

How Sump Pumps Help with Basement Waterproofing

Typically, a sump pump is installed in the basement, though it may fit into another low area of your home. A technician digs a hole (otherwise known as the sump) and the pump sits either atop of the pit (if it is a pedestal pump) or in the sump (with submersible models). The pump moves water out of the sump as it fills and brings it to a drain that leads outside of the home. This means that you won’t have to worry about mold or mildew developing as easily in the low parts of your home or the mess that results from a flooded basement.

Can You Benefit from a Sump Pump Installation?

A sump pump is not a necessity for every home. Many homes in our area are built without basements, in part to resist flooding. But any home with poor drainage in the lower areas of the structure can benefit from a pump. If you have ever experienced water damage as a result of flooding in your home, call one of our specialists to schedule sump pump installation. We can determine which type is the right fit for your needs—pedestal or submersible—and make sure it is securely installed. Remember, this is a permanent installation that is not removed with each rainfall. Discuss your options with an experienced plumber to discover the right solution for your waterproofing needs.
