Basement Sump Pump Installation

A quality sump pump is the heart of any interior basement waterproofing system. It is the real workhorse of the system and is responsible for removing the collected water from the basement. Sump pumps are very durable and designed to work for hours or days at a time with no issue but over the years they can have potential issues. There are minor sump pump maintenance tasks you can complete such as checking the sump basin for debris, pouring some water in and checking that the pump is turning on, or checking if the exterior discharge line is cleared. If your sump pump is not functioning correctly, there is a chance it could be repaired but more often replacement of the sump pump is the ideal solution. This can breathe new life into your waterproofing system and help ensure you will not have any flooding.

Problem: Broken Sump Pump

If you have a sump pump but are still experiencing basement flooding, you may have a faulty or broken sump pump problem. While sump pumps are designed to drain additional water within your basement sometimes the system can be overworked. This can be caused by a number of issues including lack of a waterproofing system, poorly designed system, or the system that was installed was not built to handle the amount of water being directed towards the sump pump. In this case the pump will get overworked and eventually break.

Other instances include a simple issue: the pump is faulty from manufacturing or poorly designed. These systems are the forefront of water protection aside from basement drains. When this fails the whole water mitigation fails along with it.

If you are experiencing any of the warning signs below, you may have a broken unit that should be replaced immediately:

  • Constantly running but not moving any water
  • Leaks form around pit or basket
  • Unit isn’t coming on at all
  • Noticeable water is sitting above the designated level in the pit indicating it needs to be pumped out
  • Basement or crawl space still floods on a regular basis
