Primary Sump Pumps
Your First Line of Defense Against Water
Sump pumps are a significant part of your home or business’s water management system. Its primary purpose is to pump any excess water out of the basement and away from the foundation, helping to keep your home dry when it rains. Premium Waterproofing will help you select and install the sump pump that’s right for you.
Why You Need a Primary Sump Pump
In the western suburbs of Chicago, we are prone to significant rainfall, making a primary sump pump almost necessary. They offer:
- Protection from flood: Your primary sump pump can handle heavy rains and melting snow while working to keep your basement dry.
- Prevention of mold and mildew: Sump pumps work hard to keep your basement dry, making it inhospitable for mold or mildew.
- Improved Property Value: A sump pump in the basement can make a home more appealing for the added protection.
Finding the Right Sump Pump for Your Home
Finding the right sump pump is essential in ensuring your basement stays dry. Our experienced professionals will help you determine the right size sump pump for your home. We install Zoeller series sump pumps because they are the most reliable and efficient on the market. Sump pumps usually have a lifespan of 3-7 years, depending on how often the pump cycles.
A properly sized sump pump is critical. If it’s too small, it will be unable to keep up with the water flowing in. If it’s too large, it creates an unnecessary expense. An oversized pump will also “short cycle,” turning on and off rapidly. This leads to premature pump failure.
