Have you noticed in the basement or crawl space of your home that there is moisture collecting? If you look outside of the home along the base foundation of the house, are you seeing water collecting? If you answered yes, then, you may need a sump pump. Before you consider doing a DIY installation of a sump pump into your home please consider the value of your time and hard earned money.

What To Consider In DIY Sump Pump Installation

There are tutorials on the internet that can show the steps of how to install and prepare the valves and PVC pipe needed for the sump pump. As well as instructions for the depth of the digging needed into the basement and foundation of the home to settle in the sump pump.  You will find guidelines for the gravel load, size and type of rock to layer in to the sump pump hole that you have dug in your house. Though, are you sure you know  what you are doing for the size of home you have? The level of the gradient of your home lot? Will your home insurance policy cover any damage caused by you doing a DIY sump pump installation?
