Water Removal & Prevention from Our Skilled Plumbers

At one point or another, every homeowner will find themselves dealing with a flooded basement. Whether the result of a burst pipe, a leaking water heater, or a natural disaster, the damage that can be caused by a basement flood can be devastating.

However, there is a way to prevent this type of damage from occurring. With a sump pump, you can rest easy knowing that your basement is protected from flooding and water damage.

For more information about the benefits of installing a sump pump in your home, call us at (810) 476-2907.

What Is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a device that is installed in the lowest point of your basement or crawlspace. It works by collecting water that is seeping into your home and then pumping it out and away from your home’s foundation.

Sump pumps are typically hardwired into your home’s electrical system, but many are also equipped with a battery backup to ensure that they will continue to work even if the power goes out.

How Does a Sump Pump Work?

When water enters your basement or crawlspace, it flows into a pit, also known as a sump basin, that has been dug into the lowest point of your basement. As the water level in the pit rises, a float switch or a pressure sensor is triggered, which then activates the sump pump.

When the sump pump is activated, it begins to pump the water out of the pit and away from your home through a discharge pipe. This discharge pipe can either be connected to a drainage system that is buried in your yard or it can be connected to an ejector pump that will pump the water out and away from your home.

Benefits of Installing a Sump Pump

The benefits of installing a sump pump in your home include:

  • Preventing flooding: The primary reason to install a sump pump in your home is to prevent flooding. By collecting and removing water from your basement before it has a chance to accumulate, sump pumps can help to prevent the damage that is often caused by flooding.
  • Protecting your belongings: In addition to preventing damage to your home, sump pumps can also help to protect your valuable belongings. By keeping your basement dry, sump pumps can help to prevent damage to your furniture, electronics, and other personal items.
  • Improving your home’s indoor air quality: When your basement is flooded, it can create the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. By keeping your basement dry, sump pumps can help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which can help to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
  • Increasing your home’s value: In addition to protecting your home and your belongings, sump pumps can also help to increase your home’s value. This is because many homebuyers are willing to pay a premium for homes that are equipped with a sump pump.

What to Do If Your Sump Pump Fails

If your sump pump fails, it is important to act quickly. The longer you wait to address the problem, the more likely it is that your basement will flood. If your sump pump has failed, you should:

  • Check the power: The first thing you should do if your sump pump has failed is to check the power. If your sump pump is not getting power, it may be because the circuit breaker has been tripped. If the circuit breaker has been tripped, you can try resetting it. If your sump pump still does not come on, you may have a problem with your electrical system and you should call a professional for help.
  • Check the float switch: If your sump pump is getting power but it is still not coming on, you should check the float switch. The float switch is what triggers the sump pump to come on when the water level in the pit rises. If the float switch is stuck, your sump pump may not be coming on. If the float switch is stuck, you can try to free it by gently tapping on it. If your sump pump still does not come on, you may have a problem with your float switch and you should call a professional for help.
  • Check the discharge pipe: If your sump pump is getting power and the float switch is working properly, you should check the discharge pipe. The discharge pipe is what carries the water out of the pit and away from your home. If the discharge pipe is clogged or frozen, your sump pump may not be able to pump the water out of the pit. If the discharge pipe is clogged or frozen, you can try to clear it by pouring hot water down the pipe. If your sump pump still does not come on, you may have a problem with your discharge pipe and you should call a professional for help.
