Functions and Benefits of Sump Pumps

Sump pumps are pieces of equipment that are designed to pump water out of basements to prevent damage from flooding. A sump pump is part of a sump pump system, and the way that your basement floor is designed is also part of that system. In low-lying areas that receive a lot of water runoff from higher areas or get a lot of rain, sump pumps are needed to prevent the water from flooding the basement. Sump pump systems consist of a trench area where all of the water is collected. Then, the water is diverted to the sump pump well, where the sump pump is housed. There are a few different kinds of sump pump designs, but the general idea is that the sump pump pushes the water out of the well and through a pipe on the side of the wall.

Signs of Sump Pump Problems

One of the most recognizable signs of sump pump problems is water in your basement. When the sump pump isn't working correctly, water will spill over the sump pump well and seep into other areas of the basement. Another sign that you might have sump pump problems is if you hear loud noises.

Your sump pump will make some kind of noise whenever you're using it, but if you hear loud sounds that are out of the ordinary, you might need to have it repaired or replaced.

The switch or float might also need replacement if you hear the sump pump turning on and off frequently. While it's normal for sump pumps to turn on and off throughout the day, it shouldn't be very frequently. For instance, if you hear your sump pump turning off every 10 minutes, there's a good chance that you should have it serviced by one of the sump pump companies in the area.
