How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Sump pumps are placed in a home where it’s most likely to collect water first: its lowest point. They are activated when a device, known as a float switch, rises due to elevated water levels. Sump pumps are useful for peace of mind in areas prone to flooding. They are also great for assisting drainage systems that are unable to keep up with heavy rain.
Once activated, the pump has a hose that transports the water to a safe location. Since many sump pumps are used for bad weather, they should be hooked up to a sump pump battery backup. This allows them to run during power outages.
There are two types of sump pumps:
- Submersible – These devices work by sitting in or under the water they are pumping.
- Pedestal pumps – These devices are kept above the water using a stand. Pedestal sump pumps can be easier to reach, maintain, and repair.
Sump pumps are machines, and they are subject to necessary repairs, maintenance, and installation. The best way to make sure your pump is ready for an emergency is through regular testing and maintenance from the closest Benjamin Franklin Plumbing team.
We’ve found the following common issues with sump pumps:
- Broken float switches
- Clogged pump intakes
- Improperly set float switches
- A lack of backup power
- Faulty check valve
- Pumps which continuously run
