How Does a Sump Pump Work?
The sump pump is more than just a pump keeping your basement dry. The system consists of a sump pit, sump pump, and sump discharge pipe. When our crews install a sump pump system, we first dig the sump pit, sometimes called a sump basin, in your basement floor at either the basement’s lowest area, or in the basement area in which water tends to pool. We install the sump pit at least 10” from the walls to ensure the integrity of the foundation. Next we install the sump pump submerged inside the sump pit, along with the sump discharge pipe.
When the outside soil becomes saturated with water, the sump pit will fill with the excess. The sump pump then redirects the water away from your home, saving your basement from water damage. The pump turns off once the water level is reduced in the sump pit.
Problems with Sump Pumps
As effective as a sump pump is at keeping your home’s foundation from getting waterlogged, if your sump pump is in need of repairs, it will not work to its full potential. Common problems include electrical outages, filtration problems, a continually running pump, and the pump emitting unusual sounds. Often times a valve needs to be changed, but sometimes the pump needs replacing. A pump needs to be the correct size for the amount of water it has to process. If your pump is continually failing, it might be time to upgrade to larger sized pump.
