What are the benefits of an efficient sump pump?
If you live on a floodplain, a sump pump is crucial to keep excess water out of your home during heavy rain or increased hydrostatic pressure. Even on sunny days, homes built in areas where the water table is close to the surface are in danger of being rushed with excess water.
A sump pump keeps this water at bay and prevents it from reaching high levels. This keeps water away from electrical outlets and wires. It also limits the extent of water damage to the home.
What are the different types of pumps?
There are various types of sump pumps, each with their own advantages.
Pedestal sump pumps cannot be sealed, but they are easily accessible for maintenance.
Submersible pumps are common options because they can be safely submerged with no danger of overheating.
Battery backup sump pumps are also important to have as a complement to your main pump. Battery backup units automatically kick on when the power goes out, helping to direct water away from your home in the event your main sump pump fails.
What common problems can we help you solve?
The most common sump pump problem is loss of power. To prevent this, we recommend installing a backup unit.
The switch on the pump can also become stuck; this prevents the pump from knowing that it needs to activate when the water level rises.
An incorrectly sized sump pump can also become overwhelmed if it fails to meet the demands of the rising water level. The pipes that direct the water away from your home can also freeze, preventing the pump from performing its job properly.
