A Great Sump Pump is Like a Great Defense
When thinking about the most important appliances in your home, a basement sump pump may not come to mind immediately, but a functioning sump pump with a backup battery system can mean the difference between a basement that is dry, and one that is destroyed by flooding and water damage. Flooding in your basement can lead to destroyed belongings and costly disaster recovery repairs.
How Do Sump Pumps Work?
A sump pump consists of two parts. A float switch and a mechanical pump. When water leaks into the basement after a heavy storm, the water level rises and will eventually lift the float switch high enough that it activates the sump pump. The water is then pumped out of the basement through a discharge pipe. If that sump pump has stopped working properly, can’t handle the volume of water coming in, or there is a power outage, your basement can begin to flood. That is why the sump pump is often referred to as the heart of any good waterproofing system.
How Long Do Sump Pumps Last?
To ensure that your pump is always in peak operating condition, annual maintenance is important. The average lifespan of a sump pump is around 10 years. Regular service and sump pump checks will ensure that your system will last and that your basement remains protected from heavy storms and flooding.
