The Importance of a Reliable Sump Pump
Sump pumps are your home’s first line of defense against dreadful flooding, property damage, safety risks, and health hazards in your home. These small pumps are installed in your basement or crawlspace at the lowest point of your home that fills with water as rain falls or snow melts, so it doesn’t back up into your basement. This overflow of groundwater collects in the sump basin and gets pumped out to prevent flooding, which will keep the foundation of your home dry and free of mold and mildew.
The Dangers of a Sump Pump Failure
When a sump pump fails, it can bring devastating consequences. If your sump stops working it can flood your basement, causing damage to your home’s foundation, your personal belongings, and lead to mold growth in as little as 48 hours. In the event of failure, fast action is crucial to saving the integrity of your home keeping it safe and mold-free. Inspection and testing help prevent sump pump failure. AJ Alberts will perform these inspections, guaranteeing you a functioning system, before tragedy strikes. Adding a battery back up system is also an important step to prevent flooding giving you security and peace of mind. Electrical outages during a rainstorm are major contributors to flooded basements. Installing a reliable battery backup system will prevent rainwater from overflowing through your pump’s basin in the event of your primary pump failure.
Ongoing Sump Pump Maintenance
Sump pump maintenance is an important step to keeping your system functioning appropriately and keeping you from a flooded basement. Maintenance items include annual testing to ensure proper pump function, keeping the sump basket free of debris, and disconnecting outdoor discharge pipes to prevent freezing in the winter months. Simply pouring a bucket of water into the sump to start the pump is also an easy way to check pump operation. For battery backup systems, battery tests and secondary pump inspections are also important to protect your investment. We offer battery backup systems that self-tests and can be connected to your security system for notifications while you’re away. Ongoing maintenance and testing are key to keeping your system operational all year round.
