Submersible Pumps - How they Work

 A submersible sump pump is a machine that is used to remove water from a special pit used to collect water. The pit is called a sump. There are two primary types of sump pumps: a pedestal sump pump and a submersible sump pump. Both types of pumps are generally used to pump water away from a home and keep a basement from flooding during a heavy rain storm. This article will explain how the submersible type works.

Submersible Pumps Work Underwater

Unlike pedestal pumps, submersible sump pumps are designed to be placed directly in the sump pit and can operate even when covered with water. The pump uses a motor that is totally enclosed in a waterproof casing that allows the pump to work in this manner. This design is preferred by homeowners that want a quieter type of sump pump.

How They Work

A submersible sump pump has a special sensor that can detect when water reaches a certain level within the sump pit. Once the sensor activates the pump motor, the device uses an impeller (special rotor blade for increasing the flow of liquid) to force water out of the sump pit through a hose or pipe that is used to direct water a safe distance away from the home and basement.

After Have you any basic flood

Flood never comes with an alarm and can strike people unaware. It doesn’t matter how furious a flood is, as even a small scale flood can damage the property worth thousands of dollars. The key is to protect your home with an elaborate disaster planning before the flood strikes and with proper home maintenance before as well as after the flood strikes.

Step 1 - Flood Insurance

If you already have some kind of property insurance and think that it will be suffice, then you need to reconsider, as a standard home insurance will never cover each and every damages inflicted upon by the flood. To insure your house against the damages of flood, you need to have a flood insurance that becomes all the more necessary in case your house is in a high risk zone.

Step 3 - Gas and Electricity Supply

It is imperative to turn off the gas supply as well as the electricity supply, as you face the risk of electrocution or some fire accidents, during the flood. Even if you need to use some electrical appliances, try to avoid their use for as long as possible. You will never want to see your house burning down with the flood water around.

Step 4 - Save Your Valuable Items

If there is any possibility of the flood striking your area, you should immediately relocate all of your valuables from the basement to some place, which can remain out of the reach of flood waters. Put your important papers and documents in some water-tight containers.

Step 6 - Keep Away the Flood Water

Try to restrict the flood water from reaching the perimeter of your house for as long as possible. To do this, you will need to seal all the air bricks, put the flood barriers against the doors and windows and use the sandbags around the perimeter of the house. Don’t forget to plug in your sink as well, as the flood water can also surge up through the drains.

Always remember when choosing your tradesmen that a good tradesman is always busy and never cheap. Good tradesmen take pride in their work, appearance, vehicles and tools. Good tradesmen are professional in their dealings with their clients and will probably vet you more carefully than you will vet them. I know tradesmen who will only work with a new client if they are recommended and vouched for by an existing client. They are so in demand that they can afford to be picky.
