What are packaged pump systems and why would I need one?
Water flooding in a basement or any other low-lying area can cause considerable damage and be costly - both in terms of money and emotionally! If you have ever experienced a flood, you will know very well how much damage excess water can do. Here are just a few of the issues caused by excessive water:
- Structural property damage
- Loss or damage to personal possessions
- Upset and stress from the loss of items that are very personal to you
- Expenses from repairs and lost items
- Hassle and time spent claiming back for items and undertaking repairs or refurbishments
In many instances, damage can be done to valuable items if there is a constant amount of excessive water. It doesn’t have to be a flood. Low lying water creates damp and increases the risk of unwanted bacteria and mould which can impact the infrastructure of the property as well as anything that is kept or stored.
This is especially of concern if your business stores items such as food or important documents that need to be kept in a dry, controlled environment.
The damage due to basement flooding not only undermines the structure of a property but it also has a negative health impact with mould spores that can affect the human respiratory system.
Package pump systems: What are they?
Having a packaged pump system provide the highest level of drainage for areas that need to be kept dry. They allow you to dramatically reduce the risk of water damage by moving excess water out of the basement and any storage areas to higher ground.
There are various types of pumping stations including groundwater, stormwater and sewage pumps. At London Basement Pumps, we are able to advise you of the best solution depending on your needs.
