CAST IRON SUMP PUMPS
Our cast iron sump pumps are built to last and less prone to problems than other sump pumps. The most important quality of a sump pump is the switch mechanism as it is responsible for the on/off cycles. Reliable switches and the ability to evacuate large volumes of water efficiently are must haves with sump pumps to keep your basement dry.

SUMP LINERS WITH FITTED COVERS
The sump liner is where the sump pump is installed. The sump liner serves the important role of regulating how often your sump pump runs. If a sump pump cycles too often it can cause the premature failure of the most critical part of your waterproofing system. A properly designed sump liner can greatly improve the efficiency of any sump pump.

Battery Back Up Systems

Battery back-up sump pumps can be overstated as they are known to underperform for homeowners at the worst times. Although battery pumps are designed to operate without electric power during severe weather events, sadly, most stop working after a few hours of operation. The expectation should be battery pumps have the capability to perform in the worst of conditions and keep basements safe from flooding.

How to Know Your Sump Pump Needs Repaired or Replaced

Monthly inspections and sump pump maintenance can alert you to more serious problems. When inspecting your sump pump, here are the signs to look for that can indicate you need professional sump pump repair.

“Glitchy switch”

Any sump pump switch that stops working but seems to function after you bang the discharge pipe or shake the pump is a switch that has already failed. This switch needs to be replaced immediately and without delay. Switch failure is the #1 cause of sump pump problems and leads to a wet basement.

Excessive Rust

Any appliance that is exposed to water can suffer from rust build up. With a sump pump, this can lead to motor failure if neglected. Rust that can’t be removed from a surface can be an indication of metal corrosion and require repair.

Unusual Noises

Sump pumps make noise, and some are louder than others. However, unfamiliar sounds such as humming or clanging can be a sign of problems that require inspection by a professional.

Jammed or Sticking Components

Sump pump parts can become jammed or stuck due to built-up debris, air locks, or lack of use. It is important to water test and inspect your sump pump regularly to discover issues like these to keep your basement safe from flooding.

Does Not Start Up

Most sump pumps run off the electrical system of the house which mean power outages result in your sump pump not working. But if it fails to start in normal conditions, this could indicate an internal electrical problem.

Continually Running

Sump pumps should run only when they need to remove water. If your sump pump starts up but does not eventually shut off, this can cause the motor to burn out. If this occurs, check the sump pump for debris causing parts to catch or stick.

Not Functioning Properly

If you see water in your basement after heavy rainfall and your sump pump has not turned on it should be inspected and serviced by a professional. There are several reasons for the sump pump not to function properly and it may just need parts repaired or replaced. However, you may need to purchase a new sump pump.

When you need to have your sump pump worked on by a professional simply call Basement Waterproofing Nationwide for all your sump pump needs.

How Sump Pumps Work

Sump pumps automatically remove water by turning on and off when activated by water triggering a float activator arm or a pressure sensor.

Sump pumps automatically remove water by turning on and off when activated by water triggering a float switch or pressure sensor. Selecting the correct sump pump is critical in achieving a worry-free result.

“More” is not always better. While more powerful sump pumps can remove water in less time than a smaller sump pump, they can also switch on more frequently and for shorter periods. This is referred to as “short cycling” which can result in the failure of the sump pump’s switch, leaving you without a working sump pump.

A correctly specified sump pump system will have the capacity to handle the most severe storm but will do so without short cycling.

Sump pumps remove collected water through a discharge pipe and exits to the outside of your home. These discharge pipes can lift water up to a height of ten feet or more before channeling it outside.

Correctly installed discharge pipes include a check valve to prevent back flow of discharged water recycling into the sump pump, a backflow event can cause repeat cycling of the sump pump switch leading to premature failure.

Underpowered sump pumps may not be able to remove sufficient amounts of water during heavy downpours, which can result in wet or even flooded basements. The proper design and specification of waterproofing components, especially the sump pump, for a waterproofing system is vital for preventing flooding and ensuring optimum waterproofing protection.

This type of work is best done by experienced waterproofing professionals.
