Full Service Residential & Commercial Flood Prevention Service in Kenilworth

The failure of a home’s sewer and sump pump system backups can cause a very messy situation that can elevate rapidly. The ensuing flood water doesn’t even need to be all that high for it to cause extensive water damage.  Your home’s sump pump and perimeter drain system are the first line of defense to keep your home dry. The perimeter drain system is designed to utilize gravity to channel groundwater and direct it toward a pit where the sump pump is located. As water builds up in the pit, the sump pumps are triggered float switch to automatically power on and expel the water through the discharge line. Without a backup system installed, if the sump pump is not signaled to turn on, the water won’t be automatically removed and continue to collect.

There are numerous reasons why sump pump systems fail. Since they are mechanical devices that are hard-wired to a home’s electrical system, something as mundane as a bad storm can knock out the power and the sump pump will cease operation as the hair rains continue. Discharge lines can get clogged with debris, leaves or even ice which will prohibit the water from being expelled from the pit. The float switch can get stuck or clogged. The drainage system may have been poorly installed with the proper pitch or even a clog which will prevent the system from channeling the water and result in a dry pit.

Then there are instances where the sump pump won’t stop! A sump pump that’s unnecessarily overworked will eventually burn out. The sump pump’s switch could be stuck from the constant vibrations literally causing the unit travel to the edge of the pit. Another common reason for this is an improperly sized sump pump. Whatever the cause, if you hear your sump pump constantly running under normal circumstances, don’t ignore it.
