WHAT ARE SUMP PUMPS?

Sump pumps are responsible for pumping excess groundwater from the basement or crawl space to the outside of your home. Installing a sump pump in your basement is your best defense to prevent flooding. Basement flooding is an all-too-common experience for many Minneapolis-St. Paul area homeowners. Studies show that 90 to 95% of all basements will, at some point, experience a problem with water penetration that something as simple as a sump pump could have prevented. Even one inch of water can take many hours to clean up and cause thousands of dollars in damaged furniture and flooring. 

To learn more about the protection a sump pump provides for your Minneapolis-St. Paul home, speak to our plumbing experts today by calling (612) 223-6158 or contacting us online!

BENEFITS OF A SUMP PUMP

A sump pump is the best defense for your basement, and it has other benefits as well. These benefits include:

  • Keeps you worry-free no matter what the weather is like outside
  • Results in a cleaner and healthier home
  • Helps prevent water damage to home and furnishings
  • Keeps your foundation dry and intact
  • Keeps the dampness from settling in, giving you a warmer, drier basement all year round
  • Helps control the humidity level of your basement
  • Removes moisture, which is a breeding ground for fungus, mold, and mildew
  • Helps prevent wall coverings and paint from peeling
  • Helps prevent rust and corrosion of metal appliances

SIGNS YOUR SUMP PUMP NEEDS A REPAIR

There are many different reasons a sump pump needs repairing. Here are some common sump pump problems that our team will be able to diagnose and fix for you:

  1. Overwhelmed Pump – If your is sump pump is not the right size for your home, it might not be able to handle high volumes of water, which can leave you with a flooded basement. Have one of our experts come out and inspect your sump pump to make any necessary repairs or replacements.
  2. Pump Burnout – A burnout can occur because of a faulty float switch or an overworked, underpowered pump. Pumps can be prone to failure, so it’s a good idea to have one of our experts ensure that your pump is not going to experience burnout.
  3. Power Outages – A sump pump needs power to function correctly. Pumps can get tripped by a circuit breaker, be affected by a power outage, or simply get unplugged accidentally.
  4. Clogged Intake – If the intake becomes clogged, this prevents the pump from extracting water from the sump pit or sump liner, causing a backup.
  5. Frozen/Clogged Discharge Line – The discharge pipe is what keeps water from your foundation. The pipe can be clogged with dirt, roots, and other debris, or frozen during extreme winter conditions.
