What is a Crawl Space sump pump?

If your home is on a crawl space in Hampton Roads, there’s really no reason not to have a sump pump.

A crawl space sump pump is exactly what it sounds like, it’s a type of pump that is designed to renavigate water that collects in your crawl space. A crawl space sump pump is installed in a pit dug in the lowest point of the crawl space, and it works by pumping out any water that collects in the pit. It then pushes the water out away from the home. This helps to prevent water damage to the wooden members of your home as well as mold growth.

In short, a sump pump is your home’s best defense against the many dangers of water. We like to describe it as the heart of your home because it’s an active system. A sump pump actively works to prevent water intrusion and it pumps water out if and when it does enter. The sump pump is constantly working like a heart pumping blood through vessels of the body. Trench drains, French drains, and drainage mats are all considered more reactive systems. This means each of these systems is present to react to whatever water situation arises versus actively protecting your home.

How a Crawl Space Sump Pump Will Help You?

If you have a crawl space in your home, you know that water can be a persistent and damaging problem. Whether it’s from heavy rains, a leaky foundation, or an issue with your plumbing, even a small amount of water can cause a slew of problems for you, your family, and your home.

To add insult to injury, even a small amount of water damage can be super expensive to repair. If you don’t address a moisture problem in your crawl space, you could be looking at long-term damage to your home’s foundation. The end result is a costly repair.

Furthermore, when there’s water in your crawl space, there will be mold! Read that again…
There will be mold.

Moisture and mold spores make their way through your HVAC system from your crawl space affecting the air you breathe and penetrating the walls.

Installing a sump pump in your crawl space can help alleviate these problems. A sump pump is designed to collect water that enters the space below your home and redirect it away from your property where it can’t cause damage to your foundation. The result is a healthier home for you and your family.

How Much Does A Sump Pump Cost?

The cost of a sump pump can vary depending on several factors including the quality and brand of the pump, its capacity, and any additional features it may have such as a battery backup system. On average, a basic sump pump can cost up to $500. Pumps with more features such as built-in alarms can cost more. In addition to the pump, there may be additional costs associated with installation such as costs to run a dedicated outlet and GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter).

It’s important to remember that investing in a high-quality sump pump can save you more money and headache in the long run by preventing water damage to your home. Therefore, while the upfront cost of a sump pump may seem like a significant expense, it’s definitely a worthwhile one if you are looking to preserve your home’s foundation.

Our sump pump installation process

Our team will first dig a trench and install a drain pipe around the perimeter of your crawl space. The drain pipe will funnel water that accumulates in the crawl space towards the lowest part of the crawl space. This is the exact location where we will install our sump pump and basin. Once the water reaches maximum capacity in the sump pit, the pump will be triggered to turn on and expel the water to the outside of the home via discharge line.
Our sump pumps include a primary sump from 1/3 to 1/2 horsepower that can pump up to 5,000 gallons of water per hour. Our sump pumps operate using electricity, but we install a battery backup system, which allows the system to continue to function if the primary pump fails or loses power in a storm. This ensures that your crawl space remains dry and protected, even during unpleasant weather conditions that are all too common in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and other areas of Hampton Roads.

Crawl Space Sump Pump FAQS

Can I install a sump pump myself?

Everytime we hear “sump pump installation” on the list of DIY projects homeowners attempt, we die a little inside.

The main reason we advise against a DIY sump pump project is because electricity is involved and this project is dangerous. In order to meet Building Code, the power supply to a sump pump must have a dedicated outlet and a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter). The sump pump needs its own circuit breaker to prevent tripping of the breaker and the GFCI is critical in preventing electric shock. Installation of a sump pump is technical. Furthermore, if done incorrectly, DIY waterproofing and drainage solutions will lend an adverse effect… Which could ultimately cause structural damage to your home. Water is nothing to take lightly, in fact it’s your home’s worst nightmare.

The life cycle of a standard sump pump is not comparable to a pump from AMC911 though.The life cycle of a standard sump pump is not comparable to a pump from AMC911 though.Most sump pumps last on average 10 years. The life cycle of a standard sump pump is not comparable to a pump from AMC911 though. Our pumps are installed inside of a bell shaped sump basin, which allows for the collection of more water. Our sump basin stores 20 gallons of water, whereas other basins on the market store roughly 9 gallons of water. More water volume in the basin translates to fewer pump cycles. Fewer pump cycles means a longer life for your sump pump equipment. Additionally, our basins are strong and impact resistant, which increases the life expectancy of the sump pump and prevents it from deteriorating.
