Why Do You Need A Sump Pump?
Many Lower Mainland homes and businesses lie within the flood plains all along the Fraser River, from Agassiz through to Chilliwack, and Abbotsford’s Sumas Prairie and Matsqui areas. In Chilliwack, the flood plains are also at risk from the Vedder (Chilliwack) River. Towards Vancouver, all of Richmond plus much of South Surrey and Pitt Meadows also lie within the flood plains. (See the Lower Mainland flood plains map.)
Now consider that the Lower Mainland receives over 160 days of rain each year with an average rainfall of 45 inches. This can be exasperated by spring snowmelt runoff from the Rockies.
Flooding in the Lower Mainland is inevitable, so it’s best to be prepared. Don’t wait until you have a flooding problem. Unfortunately, many homeowners within the flood plains of the Lower Mainland have learned the hard way – with a flooded basement.
Prevention is Key
Flooding causes mold and mildew growth (which can lead to health problems), as well as thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home or business, and your belongings. Install a sump pump and you can avoid the headache and financial stress of a flooded basement.
Sump pumps can be useful, particularly as a precautionary device, and they should be present in every Chilliwack 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.
Regular Sump Pump Service
If you already have a sump pump installed, be sure to schedule a regular sump pump service appointment. Like anything mechanical, sump pumps have moving parts that can wear out over time. Having a regular sump pump service will ensure your pump will always be working when you need it most. Here’s some more information on how sump pumps work.
Be prepared for the next heavy rainstorm or annual spring thaw and protect your basement. Install a sump pump and be sure to keep your sump pump regularly serviced. Our trusted pump experts at AJ Pumps can help you be prepared for problems before they occur.
