I live in a old house which had old pipes (Galvanized pipes I think?), unfortunately this meant it is at risk for leaks and bursts. Sadly, my basement did end up flooding and it caused some damage. Thankfully I had insurance for water damage but I wasn't too happy about the high premiums I was paying.
I reached out to Mr. Rooter to see what options I had. They suggested I can install a sump pump in case another flood occurred. I didn't have the budget for more expensive options so I figured this was the way to go for now. Mr. Rooter was very helpful and answered any question I had. They explained what a sump pump was and quoted me a good price. The installation went smoothly and I'm very happy that I am protected against future floods. What's more my insurance provider is happy too and lowered my premium!
