Most often the source of basement flooding is water build up in the soil that makes its way into your basement or crawl space. A sump pump is a final defense against basement flooding because it pumps out water from the lowest section of the basement before the water level reaches the basement floor. As groundwater level rises, it is diverted into the sump pit via a drainage pipe. Once water reaches a preset level in the basin, the sump pump dispels the collected water outside and away from the foundation.
Installing a sump pump and sump pit can save you money in the long run by maintaining the value of your home and by protecting your house and belongings from water damage. Besides the obvious damages to personal effects, flooding can also cause foundation problems and mold. Protect your home with an ECP Sump Pump today, to prevent problems tomorrow.
Remember, water collected from your roof and other hard surface areas can cause flooding if it is not collected and diverted far enough away from your foundation. Surface drainage is the key to a dry basement, making sump pumps a vital tool in protecting your homes from water damage.

Sealed Sump Lid
The next feature to look for is a sealed, airtight, moisture-proof lid. The lid or cover is a very important piece to a quality sump basin or sealed waterproofing system. There are several reasons to cover your pit with a lid. First, for safety concerns: with children and pets around you want to keep the sump pit covered to prevent someone or something from falling into the pit. Next, an airtight lid will prevent moisture and soil gasses from migrating throughout the living space. The main purpose of a sump basin is to remove water from the home, so keeping the water in the sump pump basin by using a sealed sump pit lid is necessary. One unique benefit of our sump basin lids is the ability to see through them. Clear sump pit lids allow you to see into the sump pit and make sure that everything is operating properly. These lids will have a gasket seal surrounding the perimeter which helps fight against noise and prevents moisture from entering the living space while allowing you to observe its functions.
A high-quality sump pump system is designed to remove water from under and around your home. One of the often overlooked, but key ingredients to a quality sump pump system are the basin or pit liner. The design of the sump pit will greatly affect the efficiency and effectiveness of the sump pump system. No longer do you have to settle for a glorified trash can in your basement floor. Quality sealed sump pits are available through our national network of quality basement waterproofing contractors.
The first thing you need to look at is the shape of the sump pit. The unique bell shape of our pit allows for a greater amount of water to gather at the inlet of the sump pump system. This design causes the sump pump to run 40% less often and more efficiently. Your sump pump will run less often and allow more water to be removed when it is turned on, effectively increasing the life of your sump pump system. Remember, your sump basin needs to be large enough to easily add an extra sump pump or battery backup sump pump. If the basin is not wide enough at the base there will not be enough room for water to collect because of too much equipment being placed in the bottom of the pit.
Some sump basins will have perforated holes around the perimeter and some will not. The design of the whole basement waterproofing system will dictate whether or not perforations are needed. In many clay soils, the perforations will help remove water from under the slab. In sandy soils, perforations can cause clogging of the sump pump system.
