Bergen County Sump Pump & Battery Backup Service
Prevent Flooding in North Jersey with Titanium
A sump pump is located in the basement of a home and pumps water from the basement to the outside during rainfall or other potential flooding scenarios. They usually work in conjunction with the sump pit, which is a hole dug in the basement to collect water during a rainstorm. The pump then removes water from the sump pit. Sump pumps are usually electric, but some sump pumps use your home’s pressurized water supply for power. Sometimes a sump pump is required if you live in a location prone to flooding or your home's basement rests below the groundwater table or sewer lines.
Sump Pump Battery Backups
Without a properly working sump pump, the sump pit could potentially overflow, causing serious damage to your home's foundation. This is why we suggest you get a backup battery in the off chance your primary power system fails or remains out for an extended period. Some sump pumps come with built-in backup batteries just in case the electricity goes out. It is crucial that these are kept well-charged to ensure that the sump pump will run during a power failure.
How to Protect a Sump Pump
Like many other plumbing appliances, sump pumps require general cleaning and maintenance. For a sump pump, that usually involves completely cleaning it out.
The following things commonly clog sump pumps:
- Any pebbles or gravel
- Any dirt
- Any sand or other types of sediment
- Any waste coming from the water in the sump pit
A completely clogged sump pump could prevent it from operating. It is vital that you make it a habit to check it every few months. You can also test the pump by pouring water in the pit until it causes the pump to start.
