5 Facts About Sump Pumps

  1. Basements are most often flooded by water building up in the soil, and
    overflowing into the basement. A sump pump is placed at the lowest level
    of the basement, and pumps the water out and away from the home before
    the water level reaches the basement floor level.
  2. Sump pumps are usually installed for two reasons. One, the basement
    is located in an area where frequent flooding may be a problem. Two, the
    water table is equal or above the foundation of the home.
  3. Sump pumps are usually hardwired into a home’s electrical system,
    and may have a battery backup. Some may use the home’s pressurized
    water supply as its power source, eliminating the need for electricity.
  4. It’s important to maintain a normal sump cycle. In order to make
    sure that a sump pump is in proper working condition, its important to
    check it periodically, especially before heading into a wet season. Remove
    the sump pump cover and slowly pour water into the tank. The float should
    begin to rise, triggering the pump to start. Once the pump starts, the
    water level should quickly disperse. The pump should turn off once the
    water has been cleared.
  5. Most problems associated with sump pumps stem from the float. If the
    pump does not start, the float may be stuck within the tank. Start by
    repositioning the float. If this fails, the float may need to be replaced.
    If the pump fails to shut off after the water has drained, that also signifies
    the need for a new float.
