If you haven't already lived through a flooded basement you probably know someone that has. Even a little bit of water seeping into your basement can cause extensive damage.
Besides the obvious damage that to your belongings, water damage can also cause damage to your foundation, plumbing system, and your heating and air conditioning systems. This type of damage can lead to costly, time-consuming repair or equipment replacements and could negatively affect the value of your home for many years to come.
In many cases, insurance companies do not cover this type of damage in traditional policies. Even if they do, they typically charge additional premiums, charge higher deductibles, or limit the coverage. A sump pump could save you thousands of dollars! Sump pumps pump out water before the water level reaches the floor level. As groundwater levels rise, it is diverted into a crock, where it can be pumped out away from your home. When a storm passes through, often times power outages follow. In the event of a power outage, homes are left without a functioning sump pump increasing the risk of flooding. Make sure your home is protected by having a power system ready to go when you need it most!

Sump Pump Installation - Should you do it yourself?
Although you can pick up a sump pump at a local hardware store, we caution you in doing so. The needs of your home, the area you live in (local support structures), and local weather patterns have a big impact on the type of system you should have installed. If you have an incorrectly sized pump, or if the pump is not installed properly, you will most likely have problems later on. A sump pump that is too large will be over worked and the system's life span will be negatively affected. A sump pump that is too small, may not have enough power to adequately pump the water - not only will this lead to early system failure but it could also increase your risk of flooding.
To avoid problems and situations that could be dangerous, we recommend that only qualified technicians install and/or repair your sump pump. Southport's technicians have additional training to ensure that the system they recommend is the right system to protect your home and property. Our installation team will take all the necessary steps to ensure your system is installed correctly.
