Things That Help in Avoiding Basement Flooding
Sump Pumps and Battery Backups
A sump pump in itself can significantly help you in avoiding basement flooding. Once the water rises to a certain level, a sump pump can redirect the water and pump it away from your home. However, having a battery backup for your sump pump is equally important in avoiding basement flooding in your home. When the power goes out, your sump pump will continually run with the help of a battery backup.
These valves help you avoid basement flooding by preventing an overloaded sewage line from overflowing to your basement. The backwater valve automatically closes when the sewage backs up into the valve.
If your home has been flooded before, it can be flooded again. Take the right measures to prevent this from happening. Give us a call to see how we can help you install the right equipment to prevent basement flooding.
