What Is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump system consists of a constructed pit that is dug below the level of your basement surface. The hole is then fitted with the electric sump pump that detects increasing water levels or pressures.

If there’s a flood and water levels rise, the sump pump automatically begins to collect and move water outside and away from your home using a discharge line.

There are two different kinds of sump pumps:

  • Submersible sump pumps: These systems take up less square footage because they sit underwater in a sump pit. They work quickly and quietly to remove water and minor debris from spaces such as basements, yards, crawl spaces, and other areas during a flood.
  • Pedestal sump pumps: These sump pumps are located on the floor inside of your home. They are easy to install and maintain and are a more affordable option.

Water-Powered vs. Battery Backup Sump Pumps

There are two types of backup systems that can keep your sump pump working during an electrical outage:

  • Sump pump battery backup: A large battery can power your system when electricity is lost.
  • Water-powered sump pump backup: This backup option uses your home’s water supply to power your sump pump without electricity.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sump Pumps

It can, but it’s not necessary. Often, this is because of recent rain, snow melting, or ground seepage.

A sump pump should only run when the float is triggered. If it’s constantly running, it’s likely a malfunction that a professional plumber should inspect.

We recommend scheduling maintenance for your sump pump on an annual basis. Most sump pumps do not need more than an annual inspection and adjustment.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
