While it may not seem like it, Spring is on the horizon. This means it’s time for New Englanders to start thinking about the thaw-out season. With Spring comes melting snow topped by some of the heaviest rains of the year. And, as you know, having a leaky basement during this time can lead to significant, costly problems. But have no fear, basement leaks can also be one of the most manageable problems to remedy! At Global Basement, our professionals provide solutions, including the best sump pumps in MA, to ensure your Spring season is one to enjoy!
The Location of Your Home
No, we are not talking about the geographical address of your home. We are talking about the physical properties of the land your home sits upon.
Homes that sit lower – at the bottom of a hill, for example, are in more danger of water leaks and other problems. In these cases, it may be best to divert the water away from your home before it even touches your foundation. Global Basement sump pumps can be installed just below the basement floor, and the cover will be flush to the floor. Thus, there are no obstructions or visual flaws. In fact, no one will even know it is there! The water will be pumped away from your home, keeping your basement nice and dry.
However, if your home resides on the top of the hill, water penetration is most likely not as extensive of a concern. That is, with the natural flow of things. Homeowners still need to be aware of snow buildup, foundational cracks, and improper drainage or gutter runoff that can lead to unwanted situations.
Now that you understand the benefit of a sump pump in your MA home let’s talk details.
Here at Global Basement Waterproofing, we offer a variety of high-quality products to fit your needs. Zoeller brand pumps are some of the best on the market. Pumping water at up to 40 gallons per minute, you can have peace of mind that your home is protected!
Often, we are asked what would happen If the pump failed during a storm.
Often, homeowners don’t realize that a sump pump has failed until it’s too late. With water rising in the basement, you are left panicking about what to do. At Global Basement Waterproofing, our experts can install a double pump to avoid unfortunate circumstances. With a double sump pump, if one fails, the other will kick in, providing the protection you rely upon. This works by setting the second pump with a higher activation point, so both do not run at once. Additionally, you can choose to install a backup battery, ensuring your machine will run regardless of the power situation.
The Global Basement installation professionals work hard to instill confidence in our clients. We offer a variety of services concerning leaking basements, including wall repair and drainage solutions, in addition to sump pumps.
