Sump Pump Service in Frederick, Maryland

Sump Pump Service in Frederick, Gaithersburg & Rockville, MD

Basements are used for many purposes - some use it as a storage area, others for an extension of their living space while some have it as a utility area. Regardless of how you use your basement, it's essential that you take the necessary precautions to ensure it stays dry.

A sump pump system prevents water and moisture from ever entering your basement. This system works by channeling the water through the perimeter drainage system to the sump pump system, which then quickly pumps the water out of your home. The sump pump system is usually installed in the lowest part of your basement or crawl space to keep the area completely dry all the time. This can help ensure that if water gets into your basement, you are not left with a wet mess that can cost you thousands of dollars in repair services.

Sump Pump Back-Up Systems

If a sump pump stops for any reason, the system will fail and your basement may get wet. That is why if you are going to rely on a sump pump to keep your basement dry, you should also include a battery back up system.

Sump pumps operate using your home's electricity, but there is always a chance that the same storm that is able to flood your home with water is the same storm that knocks out your power source. When that happens, then it's time for the battery backup system to do its work. There is a battery that's continuously kept charged by the backup system, and its job is to provide you with continuous support until your power is restored.

Sump pumps lose power for a variety of reasons. Aside from the obvious power failure, it's possible for a circuit to trip, especially for pumps plugged into GFI outlets. A sump pump contains moving parts that can malfunction or wear out over the years.

The best way to make sure your home is protected from a sump pump failure is to make sure that you have a battery backup pump ready to operate in the state of an emergency. The sump pump is the core of any basement or crawl space waterproofing system but like any mechanical utility within your home, your sump pump can eventually fail.
