A sump pump is at the heart of basement flooding protection, so it is imperative that you keep it in optimal condition. Things like rains, storm drain backups and damaged pipes pose a serious threat to your building. They could lead to irrevocable damage to your property by weakening its foundations, not to mention the safety issue.
Usually, we install sump pumps in the lowest level of the building. The sump pump diverts any water that sneaks its way into the building into the sump pit. Furthermore, office buildings, apartment buildings, and other commercial properties choose to install elevator sumps to protect against flooding in elevator shafts. The sump pump mechanism is simple. When the water triggers the float switch in the sump pump, the sump pump turns on automatically when the water reaches a particular level. After that, the sump pump, “pumps” the excessive water out to a city storm sewer or a drainage ditch.
How to Examine Your Sump Pump
Here is a quick test you can do on your sump pump to check if it is working properly. It only takes a few minutes, but it will help you prepare for the coming storm. First, pour a few buckets of water in it. If the pump turns itself on, remove the water, and turn off. You know it is working, as it should. However, if the pump fails the test you might need professional help. Your pump might work in a different way; we work on all types of sump pumps including, but not limited to:
· Submersible pumps: or electric submersible pump is the type you can fully submerge under water. Its motor is airtight sealed and tightly attached to the body of the pump. Major benefits include easy installation, no noise, and less energy consumption since it uses water pressure. However, the seals can become corroded over time, so the water can get in and damage the motor. They are ideal for light use, but you might need multiple stages pump in heavy duty industries. They actually work best under thin and thick waters like sewage. When installing submersible pumps, they must be fully submerged because the water helps cool the motor without it the motor would overheat.
· Grinder sump pump: They are powerful with great horsepower; typically, we install those for houses far away from the gravity sewer. They work by chopping and shredding sewage and impelling them outside the house. They also come with an alarm system that help you know when something is wrong. In fact, they are so powerful that one of them can be used for a whole building or multiple houses. Usually, these are installed outdoors and sealed because of the noise.
· Sewage pump: Most common in upscale households, sewage pump systems can be submerged under water or used outdoors in the yard. It depends on gravity to work; its purpose is moving sewage liquids to sewer lines. We typically install it at the basement level or under it. Some types are submersible and those works the best, they can be automatic, manual, or hybrid. It all hinge on the structure of your home. Avoid manual to prevent sewage overflow. It is durable, and the body is iron cast. In addition, they are designed to make solids pass so they rarely clog. However, they depend on electricity making them useless in case of power outage.
When to Replace Your Sump Pump
A sump pump contains many moving parts, and over time, they wear out and need replacement. The wear and tear process has no specific period, but the more the pump operates, the more the wear and tear process accelerates. The general rule is that you do not want to wait for the next storm to find out. When should you replace your sump pump? Every home is different, but we generally recommend that you replace it with the same model and type, or upgrade to a higher model.
We Can Help With Sump Pump Backups
Lest you experience a power outage during a winter storm or if your primary sump pump breaks down, you must have a backup plan in place. Battery, water-powered, or even having an entire backup sump pump can be your best basement flooding protection measure in hard times. It will also maintain your property in good shape by protecting it against an extreme inflow of water, stuck floats, and broken impellers. We can recommend various options to suit your home and budget.
