Your sump pump is one of those elements you may not consider until you need it—then you hope it’s operating as it should. Some homes with basements or crawl spaces are sheltered from ground water damage by a network of drainage pipes around the foundation. The pipes direct water into a shallow pit, or sump, where a sump pump pushes the water out and away from the house through a discharge pipe. A damaged or broken pump can swiftly allow water to overflow the sump and damage your basement.
Although relatively simple, a sump pump is one of the most important and overlooked disaster prevention devices in a home. Sump pumps work automatically each time water fills the sump, making them easy to forget about. While generally very reliable, it is only as good as the power that keeps it running.
When this simple system gives out, the results can be catastrophic, leading to thousands of dollars in damage, daily disruptions caused by major repair work and higher insurance premiums for years to come. So spending some time and money on avoiding failure makes a lot of sense. That’s the benefit of sump pump battery backup systems—no matter what the source of the pump failure, a backup system will save the day.
So, when your sump pump starts acting strange, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to examine your concern and help you decide on new sump pump installation, repair or replacement for your the U.S. home.
