Professional Sump Pump Installation & Drainage Services For Your Charlotte Home

Water is necessary for our survival, but it can also be a destructive force of nature. Too much water in vulnerable areas of your home can lead to property damage, mold and mildew development, and countless other problems. Water can get into a crawl space or basement from a variety of sources, including leaky pipes, improper draining from gutters and downspouts, groundwater seepage, and severe weather. However, no matter how it got there, one thing is certain: once water gets inside your home, it won’t go away on its own.

If your crawl space regularly experiences flooding or you’ve noticed excessive moisture in these areas, call ProForce Waterproofing for help in Charlotte and the surrounding areas.

ProForce Waterproofing Sump Pump Installation Process

a sump pump

When you contact ProForce Waterproofing for sump pump installation and drainage services, we’ll visit your property to assess your home’s situation. In most cases, we’ll recommend installing a sump pump to drain the excess water out of the affected area. Most often, this is the crawl space, but it can also affect the basement or lower areas of your home.

A sump pump keeps your basement or crawl space dry by preventing excess moisture and groundwater from building up within the lowest areas of your home. Sump pumps work by creating pits beneath your basement or crawl space that are designed to collect water. Once the water level reaches a certain point, the sump pump is automatically triggered, activating a fan-like device that immediately begins pumping water out of the pits and away from your home’s foundation. 

During sump pump installation, we’ll first create a circular hole in the floor of the affected area. We’ll then wrap the sump pump with filter fabric to prevent clogging the pump motor before lowering the pump basin into the hole. We’ll then install a one-way valve connected to a pipe that runs up your wall and out of the basement. This arrangement ensures that excess water is drained out and away from your property

Sump pump installation is a comprehensive process that’s best left to professional installers. Give us a call today to find out more about our sump pump installation process!

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

The overall cost of sump pump installation is dependent on a number of factors, including the type of unit to be installed, the height of the work area, and the installation time. A sump pump in the crawl space can cost up to $3,900 to install. Because most crawl spaces are only one to three feet tall, they will require excavation with hand tools rather than heavy machinery. For homeowners with existing sump pumps, a professional sump pump replacement normally costs between $400 and $600, though the cost rises if you intend to add backup batteries or extra capacity.

While sump pumps are designed to last for years, they are still susceptible to wear and tear over time. If you have a sump pump but are still seeing flooding or water buildup in your crawl space or basement, it’s time to call for repair or replacement services. For the best results, it’s recommended that you check the status of your sump pump on an annual basis. Generally, the best time is during winter before the spring storm season arrives. A faulty sump pump will most likely go undetected until it ceases to function, usually resulting in flooding and water damage to the basement or crawl space. Sump pump maintenance should ideally be performed every three to four months, with a more extensive treatment performed once a year.

While specific lifespans will vary based on the situation and installer, sump pumps are designed to last around ten years. However, it is important to remember that your sump pump’s lifespan can vary based on the situation and how heavily it is forced to work.

Weep holes (also known as relief holes) are required in sump pumps to prevent air from accumulating in the impeller chamber. Weep holes allow air to escape the interior of the pump so that excess air pressure doesn’t prevent subsequent cycles from starting.

A sump pump needs to be installed at the lowest level of the home in order to be effective, which is why they are installed at the lowest point within the crawl space or basement. This prevents the space beneath the home from becoming flooded.
