Sump Pits in Ohio

Sump Pump PitOhio, meaning “great river” or “large creek”, tells you something about how your basement or crawl space could need waterproofing. Severe weather and moderate rainfalls are common in Ohio. As the soil gets saturated and groundwater rises, water can start to accumulate in your basement or crawl space. Sump pumps are a great defense for keeping water from entering. Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing offers sump pumps as one of their many basement waterproofing solutions. A sump pump sits in what is called a sump pit.

What is a sump pit? The sump pit is a hole with a gravel base dug into the lowest part of your basement or crawl space. As water enters the pit, an activator or sensor on the sump pump turns the sump pump on automatically. It moves the water away from the home through pipes. Because sump pumps run off of electricity, Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing has battery backup systems to ensure your pump will work even if the electricity goes out.
