Aiken, Augusta & North Augusta Sump Pumps
Most basement flooding in the Aiken and Augusta areas occur as a result of groundwater buildup. As the ground beneath your home becomes saturated, water seeps through cracks in the foundation, leading to plumbing problems, extensive water damage, and loss of property value. One simple, inexpensive way to stop the water before it floods and destroys your basement is to have a sump pump installed by your trusted Aiken and Augusta plumber, Southern Plumbing, Electrical, Heating & Air.
What Are Sump Pumps?
Sump pumps are devices with built in sensors to detect water flow and prevent basement flooding. When water reaches the sensor, the pump activates and carries it away from your home’s foundation. Sump pumps are usually wired into the house’s main electrical system, but it is critical for them to have some kind of power back up as well. Many Aiken and Augusta sump pumps use car-like batteries as a power back up, while others run off the water pressure in your home. Since basement flooding occasionally occurs in South Carolina due to heavy storms, it is important that your sump pump have a back-up battery system.
