Many homeowners don’t know what a sump pump is, and that’s okay! For homeowners who live on the top of a mountain, on a cliff, or perhaps even on a high hill, this blog post probably isn’t for you. But for many Tucson residents who live in our climate, sump pumps are actually necessary for a home to function without becoming a victim of flash floods.
When rainfall hits our area hard, sometimes the easiest route for the water to go is right into our basements. They’re low and beneath the ground, essentially becoming targets for flash floodwaters to infiltrate and permeate. Sump pumps in Tucson are designed to draw in the water that would otherwise flood your basement, and pump it to an area on your property where it can be safely drained away.

What’s the Catch?
So you might be wondering now, why doesn’t every home have a sump pump? You’ve probably got a few neighbors or family members who don’t have sump pumps and they’ve been fine when it rains a lot, right? What’s the catch?
Well, anyone in our area without a sump pump who hasn’t had their basement flood is just lucky, and we don’t like leaving things up to chance. The only people who don’t need sump pumps are people with homes that are uniquely situated to avoid flooding entirely. Our area houses a lot of people who need protection from flash floods, and that’s what a sump pump is for!
Sump Pumps Need Maintenance
Before you invest in a sump pump, it’s important that we’re honest with you about these systems. First of all, they need to be maintained. They’re a preventative measure for your home, which means they won’t be working all the time. You’ll need yearly maintenance performed to ensure that it’s ready to flush out the floodwaters from your home at a moment’s notice. In our area that’s especially important, since floods can come out of nowhere.
