When your sump pump ceases to operate, or operate correctly, there are some common problems.
Overwhelmed pump - If your sump pump isn't the right size, it can become overwhelmed with the volume of water it is being expected to handle. This can leave you with a flooded basement and plenty of water damage. There are even times when one pump is not enough for the volume of water.
Burned out pump - Your sump pump can burn out because of a faulty float switch or an overworked or underpowered pump. Inferior pumps are prone to failure when under a sustained load from frequent flooding.
Loss of power - Your sump pump could lose power from tripping a tripped circuit breaker, accidentally being unplugged, or a power outage. No sump pump can operate without electrical power to the motor. Inferior pumps can also overheat and melt interior wiring, causing a loss of power.
Pump intake becomes clogged - When the water intake becomes clogged, this prevents the free flow of water from the pit or surrounding area. Running a clogged pump will burn out the motor quickly. Clear any clogs quickly, then restart the motor.
Clogged or frozen discharge line - The discharge pipe carries the excess water your sump pump removes from the basement to a location outside your home. If it becomes clogged with debris, water cannot flow and the pump becomes bogged down. If a flood occurs in winter, the outside discharge line can become frozen and blocked.
A battery backup sump pump can provide added protection for flooding in the event of a power outage. Common sump pumps require an electrical connection to function, and are therefore inoperative during a power emergency.
Battery backup sump pumps are protection for power outages or for when the primary electric pump fails for any reason. When the primary pump fails or power is lost, the battery backup pump will switch on to continue removing excess water.
