Your home may or may not require a sump pump. Needing a sump pump depends on a variety of things: your home’s age, where you live, and your area’s water table level. In the midwest, sump pumps are typically standard.

The sump pump is the heart of your home's drainage system, extracting excess water out of your home through a discharge valve.

Most sump pumps are placed on a bed of gravel at the bottom of pit with a discharge pipe hooked to the circular ring on the left side of the unit. If installed properly, your sump pump collects all excess water surrounding your house.

If your home justifies having  a sump pump replacing it can be an expensive endeavor. Avoid sump pump mishaps by understanding the key component to its function and up keep

 

Keeping your basement dry is essential to the foundation integrity of your home. Water problems can wreak havoc on your basement—and on your wallet. There doesn’t have to be a big flood to cause damage. Smaller, slow leaks and cracks in your house structure can lead to unwanted water in your home.

And a wet basement is no fun.

Basement dampness and flooding is due in part to inclement weather and poor foundation. The other part of the equation is the system that’s controlling your water flow—your sump pump.

Purchase a submersible sump pump that can be placed inside the sump basin. Secure an airtight lid over your sump basin.This sealing lid will hold moisture inside the sump basin, preventing dampness. Submersible sump pumps make less noise and are terrific for finished basements that are used as living quarters.

Don’t install your sump pump and forget about it.

Have A Back Up Plan

Sump pump failures can be catastrophic and certainly something you want to avoid at just about any cost. Failures can be a simple failure of the sump pump or switch. It can also be caused by power outages as well. Backup plans don't necessarily need to be expensive. A simple water alarm will give you a fighting chance for sure. As long as you are home and can hear the alarm you will be alerted before any flooding starts. The only issue with this is you may not have time to remedy the situation before flooding starts. In the event the failure is caused by a power outage, a backup generator maybe all you need. We commonly recommend 2 main types of backup systems. 

Battery Backup Systems

Battery backups are the most popular and overall usually cost less. These systems often come packaged with a electrical powered main pump along with a 12 volt backup pump that is powered by a large battery that is very similar to a car battery. These systems often come with an alarm system as well. The main drawback to these systems is the limit of battery power available from the battery. The battery will have a small trickle charger that in the event of a main pump failure, the charger may allow the battery to keep up in normal circumstances for some time. 

Water Powered Backup Systems

Water powered systems are considered more reliable due to your home's constant supply of water. These systems are not recommend for homes that have well systems. In the event of a power outage your well pump will most likely not work either. Stick with a battery backup if you have a well system. For anyone with mucilipality supplied water. You have a very stable potential source of power using water pressure. It is VERY important to know that a lot of the potential cost of a water powered system comes from making these systems SAFE. Anytime you connect your household's water supply to something that can contaminate it. It is not only suggested but also code in most areas that a testable backflow preventer be used on the fresh water supply. This backflow preventer will need to be installed to isolate the water powered pump. Your home may already have a backflow preventer for a sprinkler system. In most cases the pump will need it's own however. We offer a free in home consultation for anyone interested in adding this very powerful backup solution to their home to prevent flooding.
