Waterproof your basement and improve its state with sump pumps in New York. These are necessary to keep water off your coastal basements. E&M Basement Waterproofing uses sump pumps with French drains to ensure optimum functionality, so you don’t have to worry whenever it rains. The sump pump is automatically activated when water reaches a certain level and pumps it away, leaving your basement dry and free from mold and odor.

Our sump pump installation, combined with proper drainage and planning, can also run on backup power in an electrical outage. We use Zoeller pumps, which are highly durable, non-clogging, and corrosion-resistant.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a sump pump?
A: A sump pump is a device used to remove accumulated water from a sump basin, typically found in home basements. It is designed to prevent basement flooding and manage excess groundwater that could lead to water damage and mold growth.

Q: How does a sump pump work?
A: The basic operation of a sump pump involves a float switch that activates when the water level in the sump pit reaches a certain point. Once activated, the pump draws water out of the pit and expels it away from the house through a discharge pipe. This helps keep the basement or crawl space dry and prevents potential structural damage to the foundation.

Q: What types of sump pumps are there?
A: There are two main types of sump pumps: submersible and pedestal. Submersible pumps are installed inside the sump pit and are completely submerged in water, making them quieter and less obtrusive. Pedestal pumps have the motor situated above the pit, making them easier to service but often louder during operation.

Q: Do sump pumps require maintenance?
A: Proper maintenance of a sump pump, such as regular testing and cleaning, is essential to ensure its reliability during heavy rains or periods of high groundwater levels.
