Sump Pumps

Why, exactly, do you need a sump pump for your home? Within the City of Chilliwack there are floodplain areas for both the Fraser River and Vedder River and, unfortunately, many homeowners learn the answer to this question the hard way – with a flooded basement! Prevent basement flooding by installing a sump pump and avoid the headache and financial stress of a flooded basement.

Most homes suffer from below-ground wetness and many homeowners are likely to deal with a flooded basement at some point. It doesn't take much water to cause thousands of dollars of damage and the resulting mold and mildew growth creates health and breathing hazards. Sump pumps can be useful, particularly as a precautionary device, and they should be present in every Chiliwack household. When the soil around your home's foundation gets wet from either rain or floodwater, that water can leak into the basement. Even just an inch of water on the basement floor can do extensive structural and interior damage – all of which could be prevented with an installed sump pump.

Do not let the next rainstorm or the yearly spring-thaw flood your basement. Have a sump pump for a waterproof basement and keep your basement dry! Let our trusted experts at AJ Pumps help you solve the problem. Call us today to schedule an initial assessment.
