When to Consider a Sump Pump
Deciding to buy a sump pump before you need it may seem silly or like overkill. Think about it, though–you just remodeled your basement and have made it into a comfortable room. The last thing you want is for it to flood!
Here are a few reasons to consider a sump pump:
- You live in a low-lying area or an area that traps water
- Your basement has flooded before
- The weather consists mainly of heavy rain or snowfall
- Your sump pump is 5+ years old
- Your basement is finished or contains costly items
Does Your Home Need a Sump Pump?
If you live in a flood zone, yes. A working sump pump protects your home in case of a flood. But storms are not the only causes of flooding. Sewage backups and burst pipes can also cause standing water in your basement. A sump pump detects moisture and switches on, sucking up the water and leading it away from your home.
What are Common Sump Pump Problems?
Sump pumps are useful, but they do come with a few problems from time to time. Most of these issues can be avoided when the pump is installed properly by a professional.
If you’re experiencing any of these situations, it is best to call a technician before it worsens.
- No water in sump pit
- Clogged pumps
- Overwhelmed sump pumps
- Sump pump running non-stop
