Sump Pumps, Secondary Sump Pumps, Sump Pump Alarm Installation and Repair Services
After working as a service plumber for the past 15 years, I can tell you that the worst call to arrive at is a sump pump failure. Flooding occurs and precious treasures and family heirlooms are often damaged, destroyed, or lost. It always makes me wish I could have warned the homeowners of the dangers of sump pump failure.
The biggest risk for sump pump failure comes If your home is in an area with a high water table (which is the depth at which water is present in the soil) or at the bottom of a hill. You can drastically decrease this risk by having a backup sump pump installed.
Install a Secondary Sump Pump for Added Protection:
A secondary sump pump can save your home and possessions for a small fraction of what it would cost to repair damage done by flood water. There are two types of backup sumps to choose from:
Standard: One type of sump pump has a pill switch set up to turn a second sump pump on if the first pump has failed to turn on. If this type of backup is used it should be checked monthly to find out if the primary pump has failed. If you have a security alarm installed in your home it can be placed in the sump pit to sound an alarm if your primary sump has failed. You can also install a battery type of alarm. Some of these have a lead which can be hung into the sump pit to a depth that will set off the alarm if your primary pump has failed.
Battery Powered: The best type of backup sump pump is the type that is powered by a battery. If the power goes out in a storm, the secondary battery powered sump pump’s alarm will go off and give you up to five hours of pumping.
