Honestly, how many of us check our sump pump on a regular basis?
If it’s working right, we don’t give it a second thought. When it fails and your basement floods, that is usually when we research and learn all about our sump pump.
The US Department of Housing and development estimates that a sump pump ‘s lifespan is about 10 years. Perhaps your sump is still working and doesn’t have any signs of failure. What can be done?
We recommend installing a battery powered backup sump pump.
Battery powered backup sump pumps are used to supplement the primary pump by giving you several hours of additional protection from water damage if your primary pump fails due to power outages, mechanical failure, or excessive use.
In any event of failure, the backup is there. It also comes with an audible alarm to warn you if the water level is rising.
This system gives peace of mind. Although you may want to change a primary sump pump once it gets past 10 years old, the backup is a great investment. If you need a primary, it is a great time to get both pumps installed at the same time.
No one thinks flooding can happen to them until it does. Investing in a sump pump backup system is the safest way to ensure your home is kept dry and protected. A finished basement being flooded is not worth it!
