Sump Pump Problems

sump pump problems

A sump pump is an electric device that is installed at the bottom of a sump basin (pit) below the floor. Its purpose is to pump rainwater that has been drained from an Exterior or Interior Drain Tile System to a suitable discharge location.

You may also have what is called an ejector pump in your basement. It is designed to pump sewage to an overhead sewer or septic field. It should have two pipes coming out of a sealed cover. One pipe is the pump discharge to the sewer and the second is a vent usually going out through the roof. If you are experiencing any problems with an ejector pump, we recommend contacting a licensed plumber.

Not all homes are built with a sump pump. Some homes have an Exterior Drain Tile System connected directly to the sewer. This is more commonly found in older homes.

Most sump pumps have a life span of 5 to 10 years. Whether you’re replacing your existing system or installing a new system, we have a full line of both Primary Sump Pumps and Battery Operated Back Up Sump Pumps. U.S. Waterproofing is an expert fixing all types of sump pump problems.

Most sump pumps have an average life span of 5 to 10 years. Over a long enough period, it will fail and generally without warning.

Primary sump pumps are powered by your home’s electrical service. When this service is interrupted, which commonly occurs during heavy rain storms, your basement drainage system continues to collect storm water and overflows into your basement.

We offer a complete lineup of emergency sump pumps, manufactured exclusively for U.S Waterproofing.  All pumps are designed to operate using a maintenance-free, AGM gel-cell battery capable of pumping water for several hours until the power is restored.
