Full Service Residential & Commercial Flood Prevention Service in Des Plaines

If your home’s sewer and sump pump system backups fail, a good downpour could cause a lot of flooding problems. The water level doesn’t need to be very high to cause water damage, either.

A sump pump and perimeter drain system are your home’s the first line of defense to protect against flooding. The perimeter drain system is a perforated pipe installed underground that circles the perimeter of the house. Tiny holes in the pipe collect the water and channel it away from the foundation to a pit where the sump pump is located. Once the water that’s deposited in that pit reaches a certain level, a float switch triggers the sump pump to drain the water out of the pit through a discharge line keeping your basement dry. 

Just like other mechanical devices, this system can fail for a variety of reasons. A bad storm could knock out the power and prevent your sump pump from doing its job since it’s are hard-wired to a home’s electrical system. Debris or ice can clog the discharge line and the water won’t be drained from the pit. There could be a problem sump pump’s float switch getting stuck in place. There are also instances where the sump pump won’t stop running! If a sump pump is improperly sized for the job, it may not be powerful enough to keep up. These issues need to be resolved or you could risk burning out the sump pump.
