Why Do You Need A Sump Pump?

Having been in the basement waterproofing business for over 30 years, we have tested almost every sump pump sold in today‚Äôs market. Most sump pumps have an average life span of 5 to 10 years. After long periods of time, it may fail without warning. It’s important to have regular maintenance checks for your sump pumps, but it won’t always prevent a random failure. We can replace your existing sump pump, or if your house is not equipped with one, install a brand new system. Our newly installed systems are complete with a sealed basin and high water alarm to alert you if the water is starting to get too high. We can also assist you with the selection, as there are many factors to consider, including manual or automatic, battery backup sump pump, or sump pump alarm systems. Some homeowners choose these extras for a higher sense of security, but it’s up to the individual and their situation.

Types of Sump Pumps & How They Work

There are two basic designs when it comes to sump pumps. The first is a submersible pump that sits in the bottom of a sump pit that is submerged in the water. The sump pump itself has a waterproof housing. The second type of primary sump pump is a pedestal pump. In the case of a pedestal pump, the pedestal positions the pump out of the pit and out of the water, even when the pit is full. A specially designed pipe reaches down into the bottom of the pit to draw the water out. Sump pumps use float devices to determine water levels in the sump pit. An automatic system will pump water out of the sump pit and safely out of your basement or crawl space. This prevents water from building up in your basement and causing bigger problems.
