Is your basement prone to flooding after heavy rain?
If this is the case, you may need to install a sump pump. A sump pump is a small pump designed to remove excess moisture and water from your basement. These vital equipment channel groundwater into a drainage system, preventing flooding in your basement and yard during rain. If you already have a sump pump but flooding continues, it may require some maintenance to work effectively.
In addition, a properly functioning sump pump will:
- Keep your basement warm and dry all year.
- Assist in the preservation of your foundation.
- Prevents the growth of mold
- Protects metal appliances (washer, dryer, etc.) from corrosion caused by water.
Water damage can quickly escalate into a crisis, and even a few inches of standing water in your basement can cause structural damage. Not to mention your walls, floors, and furniture if it spreads throughout your home. If you have regular flooding, whether you have a sump pump or not, call Transou's Plumbing & Septic as soon as possible and let us help!

A sump pump is a mechanical device that removes water from a foundation or basement. It's typically installed in an area below the ground, basement, or crawlspace with a designed sump pit.
A sump pump works by pumping water from your home's lowest point, usually your basement or foundation, and discharging it outside. This process helps prevent flooding in your home by removing excess water before it can enter through cracks in your foundation walls or windowsills.
The answer depends on where you live and how much rain falls near your home during the year.
If you live in an area with lots of rain and few storms, then yes: installing a sump pump can save you money on potential repairs down the line (and protect against major flooding). If you live in an area with little precipitation throughout the year or very few storms during the winter months, then no: installing a sump pump will likely be unnecessary.
It depends on how often it gets used and how well maintained it is over time—but generally speaking, they should last at least 7-10 years before needing replacement.
You want to make sure that your sump pump is insulated properly during the initial installation so that it doesn't freeze up during the winter months or when temperatures drop below freezing outside. If you're not sure how to insulate your sump pump correctly, call us for help!
