What Is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a device that pumps water out of the home to a place where it can drain properly. The pump is usually placed in a pit, which is a hole dug into the lowest-lying point in a basement or crawl space.
Most sump pumps are the submersible type, which means the motor and electronic components are housed within a sealed, waterproof plastic shell. The submersible pump can be placed directly in the accumulated water pit.
When the sensors detect water, it activates the pump and forces the water into the drain–removing the water and taking it outside.

What Do I Do if My Sump Pump Fails?
There are many reasons your sump pump can fail, such as power failures, improper sizing, frozen or clogged discharge lines, incorrect installation, and more. If your sump pump is not working, it’s important to call a plumber immediately, as it can be difficult to pinpoint the problem on your own, especially when water is entering your home.
We know that homeowners get busy and forget to regularly check and maintain their sump pump. However, we suggest that you check and test your sump pump every month to avoid sump pump failures.
If you have any questions about the way your sump pump is operating and whether it will work when you need it to, please contact us.
What Else Can I Do to Avoid Flooding?
In addition to installing a sump pump with a battery back up or a water-powered sump pump, you may want to take other precautionary measures, like waterproofing your basement and diverting runoff water away from your home.
