Do I Need a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps essentially serve as insurance against expensive flooding damage. For example, if your home is in a low-lying area that’s prone to heavy rain or snow, there’s a good chance you’ll need a sump pump (if you don’t have one already). In addition, basements with sump pumps older than six years should have their device replaced. And of course, if your basement has been flooded before, your home definitely requires a sump pump.
The potential for costly repairs and damaged property from flooding is simply too great a risk to ignore. There are also detrimental health effects to flooding in the home, including mold and mildew that can cause respiratory problems, especially in children and the elderly.
