If your home has a basement, and you do not have a flood control system in place, you may have seen water buildup, dampness or even water damage after a hard rain. Small puddles of water or discoloration in your basement floor are a bad sign and should be taken seriously and fixed quickly before the problem causes other problems. The longer water sits on your basement floor, the greater the chances are for unhealthy and dangerous conditions. The damage can extend to your furnace, water heater, washer, dryer, electrical outlets, drywall and baseboards. A typical insurance claim for a flooded basement is as excess of $10,000 and two claims with your insurance will usually get you dropped if the situation is not rectified.

Flood Control Installation Helps Protect Your Investment
Basements that have concrete floors can frequently fall victim to water damage. Standing water can weaken concrete over time, causing cracking and buckling. A professionally installed flood control unit can prevent future flash flooding occurrences in and around your home.

A Word About Flood Control Installation
The time it takes to install a flood control system depends on your basement’s depth because it tells you how deep your sewer is outside. The installation always includes an ejector pump and two backwater valves. These two parts are the most important in a flood control system. We can provide you with rapid response from our expert plumbing professionals who have decades of experience in the installation of flood control equipment and systems.
