Make sure your sump pump system works when you really need it!

One of the most important appliances in your basement or crawl space is a Sump Pump. Rainstorms and unpredicted flash floods can cause basements and crawl spaces to flood. It is recommended by leading Sump Pump Manufactures that sump pumps are regularly inspected and maintained to ensure proper operation.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible electric pump that is installed in hole beneath your basement and or crawl space floor (Sump Pit). The pit is typically located at the lowest corner of the basement or crawlspace. When the water level rises in the hole (Sump Pit), the pump automatically turn on and pumps the water out of the basement or crawl space. Sump pumps cannot operate without electricity. Storms, blackouts, and other circumstance can cause power outages. A battery-backup sump pump can ensure that your sump pump continues to operate even when the power goes out.

Tips For Preventing A Flooded Basement

Sump Pump Maintenance - Make sure your sump pump is working properly. Make sure the sump pump is plugged into a working electrical outlet. Sump Pump Systems should be serviced (preventative maintenance) at least once a year.

Install A Sump Pump - A sump pump with an automatic level switch should be installed into a basement sump pit (sump liner). When water enters the sump pit, the sump pump will pump water out of the basement (below grade) and away from the house.

Install A Backup Sump Pump - A battery backup sump pump will automatically pump water out and away from the house when there is power loss or if the primary sump pump fails. A battery backup sump pump will also pump water out if the primary pump becomes overwhelmed. Often, we look to quick fixes for wet basement problems. Most flooded basements are caused from a lack of maintenance. Sump Systems need to be maintained. A preventative maintenance program can prevent a flooded basement.

Note: If you do experience a flooded basement, avoid electrical shock by not stepping into basement with water. Contact your local Fire Department or Utility Provider for safety.
