Some people swear that there's no better place to live than near a body of water. While fishing, boating and swimming can provide for countless hours of fun, one bad storm can bring the fun into your home, causing thousands of dollars in damage and an insurmountable amount of repairs and maintenance - and that's assuming the water only makes a short stay.

Since basements are typically below ground level, draining the water out is nearly impossible without a quality sump pump. And the longer the stagnant, polluted water sits in your home, the more extensive and potentially dangerous damage it will cause.

While this is a serious issue faced by homeowners all over the United States, residents near Alexandria, VA are no strangers to storms that produce heavy flooding and water damage, as they're particularly vulnerable to this kind of devastation.

It's important that anyone whose home is susceptible to flooding install a reliable drainage system, but in Alexandria, VA and the Metro DC area, it's a no-brainer to have a sump pump system always at the ready.

Not all pumps are alike though, coming with a number of different floats, diaphragms and mercury switches. While each offers its own pros and cons, it's crucial that residents Alexandria, Virginia have an automatic sump pump that will start working the moment their home starts to fill with water. Furthermore, once the water is gone, manual sump pumps can burn out if they sit idly running "dry" for an extended period of time.

At John C. Flood, we not only install Zoeller automatic Sump Pumps, the leader in water solutions, we also offer residents near Alexandria, VA sump pump repair.
