Sump pumps are life savers when it comes to protecting your home from flooding. We can get some pretty bad storms that dump significant amounts of water on the Cincinnati area in a short amount of time.
If there’s no pump to keep that water out, your basement will flood. It’s a good idea to test your sump pump every month or so. You don’t want to find out your sump pump isn’t working in the middle of a storm. There’s an easy test you can perform to ensure your pump is in working order.
Simply take a five gallon bucket of water and dump it into the sump pit. Wait for the motor to kick on and empty the pit. If you notice any problem – the pump doesn’t engage, the pit doesn’t fully empty or any other oddity, call Herrmann Services and we’ll send one of our plumbers to repair it or replace it.
Unfortunately, the time you need your sump pump most is when there’s a thunderstorm. During a thunderstorm is also the most likely time you will lose electrical power. What happens when the ground is getting saturated quickly and your sump pump isn’t pumping?
Your basement can fill up with water. But don’t worry, all you need is a battery back-up sump pump. It is designed to kick in and take over for your pump if there is ever a power failure. It can even work in tandem with your main sump pump if it is ever having trouble keeping up with the amount of water it has to pump.
Battery back-up sump pumps are the perfect insurance against soggy basements. If you have a finished basement, a battery back-up sump pump is highly recommended. Give us a call and we can install one for you.
