What is a Sump Pump?

Picture a sturdy basin hiding beneath your basement floor—that’s where your Triple Service sump pump lives. When rainwater or melted snow sneaks into your basement, it drains down through channels we create until it is in this basin. As the basin starts to get full, a float switch kicks your home’s sump pump on. It starts pumping that water out of your basement and away from your home, keeping your basement nice and dry no matter how hard it’s pouring outside.

Protect Your Home from Flooding

Sure, sump pumps are awesome on their own, but they work even better when you team them up with other tricks.

Change up your landscaping to steer water away from your home’s foundation—that way, there’s less chance it’ll sneak into your basement. You can move landscaping away from your home or ask our experts which plants work best if your basement tends to flood.

Don’t forget to seal up any cracks or gaps in your foundation. We can help you do this if you haven’t done it before or you don’t like doing it yourself.

When you combine these tricks with your trusty Triple Service sump pump, you’re building layers of defense against flooding, making your home even safer when the rain starts to pour.
