Full Service Residential & Commercial Flood Prevention Service in Park Ridge

If your home’s sewer and sump pump system backups fail, the water simply doesn’t have anywhere to be routed. Flooding results and the situation can elevate rapidly. The water doesn’t need to be very high to cause water damage.

Your home’s sump pump and perimeter drain system are your home’s the first line of defense to keep your basement dry. A home’s perimeter drain system uses gravity to channel groundwater and direct it into a pit where the sump pump is located. When the water builds up in the pit, the sump pumps are automatically switched on by a triggered float to expel the water. If that sump pump fails to activate for whatever reason,  without a backup system installed, the water won’t be automatically expelled.

Sump pump systems can fail for a variety of reasons. They are mechanical devices and require a source of power which can get knocked out from a bad storm. Discharge lines become clogged with debris or even ice which will prevent the water from being removed from the pit. The functionality of a float switch can be disrupted from debris clogs. If  the sump pump pit is dry, the drainage system may have been improperly installed with the proper pitch or there could be a clog. 

In some instances, the sump pump won’t stop! The overworked sump pump will eventually burn out. The sump pump’s switch could be stuck from the constant vibrations literally moving the unit to the edge of the pit. The continual running could be the result of a broken check valve. Another common reason for this is an improperly sized sump pump. A sump pump that’s constantly running under normal circumstances should not be overlooked.

There is a reason that I ALWAYS call Capp’s when I need a plumber. They come out the same day, are on time, explain everything, and make sure I know prices before any work is done. My plumber today, Eric, explained everything to me in detail. He also wore his mask 100% of the time (as did I so he would be safe, too.). Could not be more satisfied.
