Puget Sound Sump Pump Installation

Need a Sump Pump Installed?

Are you struggling with flooding problems? Experiencing constant water leakage in your basement? Unfortunately for homeowners, the heavy Puget Sound rainfall increases your flood risk.

The best way to prevent flooding & water damage is to install something called a sump pump. A sump pump is an electric pump designed to eliminate excess water and keep your basement and crawlspace as dry as possible. The last thing you want is extensive water damage done to your home – especially when it can be prevented!

Contact Green Attic to get your sump pump installed in Snohomish, Pierce, and King County.

What is a Sump Pump and What Does It Do?

A sump pump is a pump, located in a basin underneath your crawl space. This pump works to redirect stagnant water out of your crawl space. It detects rising water levels, and when a certain level is hit, it directs the water into a french drain and away from your home. Usually, the water is channeled into a storm pond or dry well. By eliminating excess water, you can prevent flooding in your basement and crawlspace.

Without a sump pump, you run the risk of standing water becoming a breeding ground for pests, bacteria, and mold. These contaminants can poison your home’s airflow and put your family’s health at risk.

Our Sump Pump Installation Process

Here is an overview of our tried and true sump pump installation process: 

Dig Your Basin

First, we dig a basin underneath your crawl space. A typical basin is 18-20 inches deep and 8 -24 inches away from your home’s foundation.

Dig French Drains

Next, we dig french drains. A french drain is a perforated drain pipe installed into a low-lying trench, filled with rocks or gravel. We then form a path that will redirect the water away from your home.

Install Vapor Barrier

A vapor barrier works in conjunction with your sump pump to keep water, moisture, and humidity out of your crawl space. We install your vapor barrier to exact measurements, ensuring that no air is exchanged between the barrier and crawl space.

Install Sump Pump

Lastly, we install your sump pump at the lowest end of the basin. The sump pump will automatically begin pumping out water when the levels become too high.
