Full Service Residential & Commercial Flood Prevention Service in Long Grove

If a home’s sewer and sump pump system backups fail, water damage is an inevitable consequence. When it comes to flooding, the water level doesn’t need to waist-high to cause a lot of water damage.

A sump pump and perimeter drain system act as a home’s the first line of defense against flooding. The perimeter drain system consists of a perforated pipe underneath the ground that circles the perimeter of the house. The pipe has tiny holes that collect the water and channel it away from the foundation of the house to a pit. As the water builds up in that pit, a sump pump gets activated by a float switch to drain the water out of the pit through the discharge line.

As with any appliances, mechanical devices can fail a variety of reasons. If the power is down for any reason, including something as common as a storm,  your sump pump won’t do its job since it’s are hard-wired to a home’s electrical system. Debris or ice can interfer with the function of the discharge line by preventing water from being drained from the pit. If the  sump pump’s float switch getting stuck in place, whether on or off, it throws the process off. There are instances where the sump pump won’t stop running! A sump pump can become overwhelmed or may not be powerful enough for the job. Whatever the issue is, it needs to be repaired or you could risk losing the sump pump.
