During an average summer, the Metro Detroit area receives over a foot of rain. This heavy rain can keep your home’s sump pump working nearly continuously to keep your basement dry. As mechanical issues go, we don’t often think about the sump pump. It’s down in the basement, out of sight and out of mind. In reality, your sump pump is one of the hardest working pieces of equipment in your house.

A typical submersible sump pump drains water year-round, and when a rainstorm hits, this pump works extra duty keeping your basement from flooding. This constant operation means that the chance of parts wearing down and an a failure occurring are very high. Don't let a faulty or worn out sump pump turn into a flooding disaster. Schedule a sump pump inspection and maintenance visit today, or consider adding a backup sump pump for extra peace of mind.

In addition to replacing an old worn out sump pump, you should consider protecting your home with a backup sump pump installation and replacement. A backup system becomes increasingly important if you have a finished basement.

There are two main types of sump pump backup systems: water driven backups and battery backups.

Battery backup sump pumps are the best choice for homes using well water. They not only protect your belongings by continuing to operate during a power failure, but automatically kick in should your primary water pump fail.

Water powered sump pumps are configured to turn on automatically only in the event of a primary sump pump failure. Water powered backup pumps are much more straightforward than battery powered backup pumps and require virtually no maintenance, so they have less to go wrong. However, you must have a reliable municipal water supply, consistently achieving 20 psi pressure or more. 

Sump pumps should be checked for proper operation a couple of times per year. Pour some water into the sump pit until the submersible pump cycles. Don’t wait for a system failure during a rainstorm to find out your sump pump doesn’t work.
