Your sump pump is one of those items you may not think about until you need it—then you count on it to be operating as it should. Some homes with basements or crawl spaces are protected 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 rapidly allow water to overflow the sump and damage your basement.
Although rather simple, a sump pump is one of the most critical and overlooked disaster prevention devices in a home. Sump pumps work systematically each time water fills the sump, making them easy to forget about. While normally very reliable, it is only as good as the power that keeps it functioning.
When this simple system breaks down, the results can be disastrous, causing 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 evading failure makes a lot of sense. That’s the benefit of sump pump battery backup systems—no matter what the reason for the pump failure, a backup system will save the day.
So, when your sump pump starts acting different, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to examine your issue and help you decide on new sump pump installation, repair or replacement for your the U.S. home.
