3 Things to Consider Before Sump Pump Installation from a Scottsdale Plumber

September 1, 2015

Anthony’s Plumbing is happy to provide a Scottsdale plumber who can install a sump pump in your basement just in time for fall. The end of summer means the beginning of rainy season, which sees a higher risk in basement flooding in homes across Scottsdale. It may seem warm and dry now, but your basement can be flooded in an instant without proper protection. Flooding can result in serious water damage in your basement and without a sump pump, you could be forking over cash for repair.

But, of course, like any appliance, considering sump pump installation requires thought. Jumping into sump pump installation without any consideration to space, budget, or the members of your household can lead to you installing a sump pump that just doesn’t fit into your home. Fortunately, Anthony’s Plumbing is here to help you along in the process.

What Does a Scottsdale Plumber Want You to Consider?

Anthony’s Plumbing has a Scottsdale Plumber ready to install, repair, or replace a sump for you, but here are 3 things to consider:

  1. How Can This Protect Me from Flooding? A sump pump is your best defense against a basement flood. It works by actively pumping water out of a designated area, and away from your home. Even with the cost of the installation, a sump pump could save you a ton of money on future water damages. It will also increase the value of your home.
  2. How Can This Improve My Home? Your basement doesn’t have to be flooded to impose a health or safety concern. A little dampness can be a huge threat to you and your family. A wet atmosphere is the perfect home for mold and mildew growth. Sump pumps help by regulating the humidity in your basement. With less humidity, the less you have to worry about harmful bacteria invading your indoor air. Don’t sacrifice the health and safety of you and your family, and get one installed immediately.
  3. Where Should It Be Installed? The location of your home is a big factor in the decision of installing a sump pump. Arizona may be known for its dry, hot summers, but the flooding can be immense and disastrous. However, it’s important to consider the amount of space you have in your basement, so you can install the right sump pump that’s not ill-fitting in any way.
