A sump pump is a rather inexpensive insurance policy to ensure your home stays dry.

Those are all reason enough to invest in a sump pump for a basement that regularly takes on water.

Need a little more convincing that a sump pump is the right solution for your home? Here’s a list of advantages that will surely help you make your decision.

Keep electrical appliances safe – Not only can standing water cause wire damage to your electrical appliances, which would require repair or replacement, but standing water can also result in an electrical fire.

Prevent mold and mildew – Mold and mildew form and grow as a result of standing water. They can cause both structural damage as well as health issues. Sump pumps eliminate the problem of standing water, thereby helping to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

Prevent insect and pest infestations – Basements that are damp are a breeding ground for insects and pests, so by using a sump pump, you’ll help to prevent possible infestations.

Wet Bar- You can make your basement the place to hang out by building your own wet bar. You could design the layout to fit in the corner, so you could still have a game room or a home theater with a bar on the side. This way you don’t have to go back upstairs for another drink.
