If your home or property sits in a floodplain or a low-lying area and you have a basement or crawlspace, chances are you’ve had to deal with excessive moisture and flooding at some point.

If you’re lucky, you already have a sump pump installed that removes water before it causes damage. Sump pumps are small devices permanently installed inside a sump basin.

When water collects inside the basin and hits a certain level, the pump automatically turns on and diverts water away from your property through a drainage system.

Keeping this device working properly through sump pump repairs and maintenance is essential in keeping your property fully protected. If you’re considering a sump pump installation in Wolcott, CT, F.F. Hitchcock Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help.
