Hydrostatic Pressure

sump pumps in overland park

For most homeowners in Overland Park, Hydrostatic Pressure is referring water that rests against your foundation which is usually caused by a lack of proper drainage. Eventually this static pressure will find the path of least resistance.

Most of the newer homes in Overland Park are designed to stand up to hydrostatic pressure with a drain tile that runs along the outside of the foundation. Most houses built after 1980 have an exterior drain tile that feeds into a sump pit.

If your house was built with a sump pump, you need to understand that water is going to fill the sump pit whether your sump pump is working or not. If you have a finished basement you may want to consider a backup sump pump.

If you don’t know if your sump pump is even working, KC Plumber Pro can perform a sump pump inspection for $89 to test and diagnose any potential problems.
