Their primary purpose is to collect and then pump excess water away from your home. As a result, your basement remains dry, free of moisture and protected from expensive property damage. If you’ve had issues with water in your basement – or even if you haven’t – investing in a sump pump is a smart way to protect your home.

Clay soil is referred to as a dense or heavy type of soil because it’s so compact and drains so slowly, which allows the water to pool. If a foundation is built in such dense soil, the water that can’t drain through the soil will instead drain through the porous walls of the foundation and cause flooding in your basement or crawlspace.
