Full Service Residential & Commercial Flood Prevention Service in Aptastic

When your home’s sewer and sump pump system backups fail, a very messy situation can rapidly develop. The resulting floodwaters can cause extensive damage. What’s worse is that the flood water doesn’t even need to be all that high to wreak havoc. 

A home’s sump pump and perimeter drain system are the first line of defense to keep your home safe from damaging floodwater. The perimeter drain system is usually a perforated/porous pipe that’s installed underneath a house. The pipe collects water and draws it away from the home’s foundation. Once collected, the water is directed toward a pit where the sump pump is located. It is crucial that this system is installed with the proper pitch to be able to channel the water to the pit. As water builds up in the pit, a float switch automatically triggers the sump pumps to power on and remove the water through a discharge line out and away from the house. 

When a system fails, the above process is disrupted and there are number reasons that can cause sump pump systems to fail. Something as common as bad weather can cause a power outage which will cause the sump pump to cease operation since they are mechanical devices that are hard-wired to a home’s electrical system. Without a proper backup system, the water will continue to collect, especially during driving rains. Debris such leaves or any obstruction, including ice, can clog the discharge line which will prevent the water from being removed from the pit. Sump pump vibrations can cause a float switch can get stuck or clogged. If you don’t hear your sump pump coming on, call Capps. 

Conversely, you may run into a problem where the sump pump won’t stop running! The sump pump’s switch could be stuck. The sump pump could be improperly sized for the demand.
