SUMP PUMP INSTALLATION
Is your basement regularly flooding? If your answer is yes, one of the most important things you can do to prevent Basement Flooding is installing a Sump Pump.A submersible Sump Pump can be installed into an ABS pit with a cover below the concrete level. The discharge is directed outside. To handle ground waters on any rain, the pit must be tied into the weeping tile from the new waterproofing or in the older system if it is in good condition.
The city of Toronto has a “Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program,” which assists homeowners with a financial subsidy of up to $3,400 to install flood protection devices like a Sump Pump.
