What Are Sump Pumps & Why Are They Necessary?

Sump pumps are devices that remove the water that collects in a sump basin, typically found in the basement of a home. There are a variety of different types of sump pumps, but most are about 26 gallons and 18 inches in diameter. If your basement is prone to flooding, having a sump pump can save you thousands of dollars in water damage.

Even if your basement is not at risk of flooding, excessive moisture can still be a problem, especially if your basement sits below the water table in your area. Dampness can lead to mold, mildew, and rot. A sump pump keeps your basement drier and prevents damage to your home and health.

Does A Sump Pump Need Maintenance?

What Are The Different Types of Sump Pumps?

Sump pumps range in cost, effectiveness, and visibility, so you can choose one that best fits your needs and basement layout.

Some of the different types of sump pumps and their advantages include:

  • Pedestal sump pumps — The least expensive type, pedestal sump pumps sit above the ground on a pedestal, making it fully visible. The cheaper cost and easier installation are countered somewhat by reduced efficiency. Pedestal sump pumps work best for less-serious moisture issues and may need to be replaced sooner than other types.
  • Submersible sump pumps — The most permanent option, submersible sump pumps have a fully sealed motor to prevent water damage and reduce the need for replacement. This type is quieter than pedestal options, works with larger basins, and has a longer operating life. It is less visible, making it an ideal option for finished basements that are used frequently.
  • Sewage sump pumps — Sewage sump pumps are a specialty type of pump for homes that have sewage lines below the main line for your area. The pump helps remove the sewage from your bathrooms and kitchen since gravity alone is not enough to push it to the main line.
  • Backup sump pumps — Backup pumps can be used in conjunction with other types of sump pump to offer homeowners greater peace of mind should their primary system fail. Backup sump pumps run on battery power or with force from the municipal water supply to ensure that they can operate even when the power goes out.

When Does A Sump Pump Need Repairs?

As with all machines that contain moving parts, sump pumps can have issues that prevent proper function. When your sump pump fails, it’s important to have a professional carry out repairs as soon as possible so that you’re not left dealing with flooding after the next storm.

Some of the most common problems that require sump pump repair in Austin include:

  • General power failure
  • The switch becomes stuck
  • Insufficient pumps for your needs
  • Improper initial installation
  • Normal wear and tear over time
  • Pipe blockage caused by frozen water
