The Basement Sump Pump In Your Home: Does It Need A Cover?
Indoor plumbing certainly made life easier, but with it came a host of maintenance considerations. Certainly you want the water coming into your home. But you want it in the right places and in the right quantities. One place you don’t want it is in your basement. For that, there’s the sump pump. If you have a basement sump pump, you might be wondering if it needs a cover. The answer is usually yes.
- Some building departments require a sump pump cover. Check with the building department in your community.
- Another consideration is radon. If you suspect that this gas might be an issue in your basement, a cover is a good idea.
- A cover can prevent the issue of odds and ends falling into the water and interfering with your sump-pump operation. Many homeowners use the basement as a storage area, and things can easily fall into the water.
- Although you may keep your young children and pets out of the basement as a rule, there’s always the chance that a child or a pet could take a spill.
