What is a Sump Pump?WI Sump Pump Repair

A sump is a pit or hollow in which liquid collects, and the pump part of a sump pump pushes water out through a drain to the city sewer system. As the name suggests, the pump is housed in the sump.

The sump, aka sump pit, should be located at the lowest part of your home so as to work with gravity for water collection. Modern sump pumps activate automatically when a float arm or pressure sensor reaches a certain height or pressure and starts pushing the water out.

Warning Signs of a Failing Sump PumpSigns of Sump Pump Failure

Every spring the snow starts to melt, it seems to rain every other day and the sweet sound of running sump pumps starts the fill the air. A properly running sump pump will keep water away from your foundation and keep your basement dry. An old or malfunctioning sump pump will fail over time, or might fail suddenly leaving you with a swamp in your basement.

  • 1. Your Sump Pump is Old - If you know your sump pump is old it might be worth replacing. If you have no idea how old your sump pump is it's time for sump pump maintenance. Southport's plumbers can easily identify an old sump pump and make the right recommendations for your home.
  • 2. Your Sump Pump Runs All the Time - If your sump pump runs all the time it could mean it is struggling to remove enough water, forcing it to work overtime. Your sump pump might run all the time because it was a particularly wet week. It might run all the time because your foundation is below the water table, forcing your sump pump to constantly remove water.
  • 3. Your Sump Pump Doesn't Run at All - If your sump pump doesn't run at all it might be clogged, broken, or damaged in some other way. Your sump pump might not run because the drainage around your home is particularly good and it just doesn't need to run.

All of this might seem like a bunch of nonsense answers that never get to the point. Point is sump pumps really have no warning signs. One morning you leave for work and then come back that night to a flooded basement. You do not know your sump pump is not operating correctly until it is too late. So how can you prevent sump pump failure?

  • Get a professional plumber to assess your sump pump. Southport's plumbers can look at how your pump and determine if it needs any repair or if it's fine. Have a technician look at your sump pump before the spring or after.
  • Install a battery backup. Most sump pumps rely on power from your home. If power goes out during a particularly bad rain storm your sump pump wont be able to keep your basement dry. A battery backup is an extra power source that keeps your sump pump running during a power outage.
  • Schedule annual maintenance. Members of the all new Southport Club have access to annual maintenance. One of our trained plumbers will visit every year to inspect your sump pump to ensure it is running correctly.

Once you have had your regular sump pump checked out and have had a battery back-up installed, you can have some piece in mind that your basement is protected. This is a great deal better than trying to guess how your sump pump is working based on how often it runs.
